what licenses can one get without sponsorship

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by FastandFurious, Feb 7, 2008.

  1. that will be useful in the industry as a trader, not as a manager?
  2. You could get the Series 3 on your own if trading futures. Most (if not all) other licenses require firm sponsorship.
  3. thank you for the response. As a matter of fact, I'm in the progress of getting materials for the series exam.
  4. Is there any benefit to obtaining this? I had a friend that took it but it was to be a broker, not trading.

    Is the exam focused more on rules/regulations and sales or would there be value to the individual trader?
