Hi guys, I'm a big fan of Algo trading, and I really think that is the future of trading. Right now, I'm trying to get into a trainee program from a prop trading firm. I talked to two of their traders, and told them about why i want to be a trader. They were not satisfied with my answer, and they think it's too "textbook". FYI, the answer i gave, is below: I love trading because 1)I'm good with numbers, 2)I love the challenge and excitement from trading floor. (I also mentioned about my disciplinary personality as a good fit) 3)I'm an entreprenuer who has strong desire to achieve, and the ability to catch opportunity to make money from the market. (i cofounded 3 companies during my uni time) If you are a trader, when you are interviewing a fresh guy as your trainee, what kind of answer are you expecting to hear from that guy? Or, in another word, what's your answer on "why do you want to become a trader?" Really appreciate!
