As I am studying for the CFA, I'm trying to get a feel for what individual trading (if any) I'll be able to do depending on what job I get in industry. If I join a bank as an equity or fixed-income analyst, am I eligible to do *any* private trading of my own? If I trade after a certain window, am I good to go? If I join a publication and publish my opinions there, what individual trading can I do at home? If I am the portfolio manager at a bank (but not running my own hedge fund) what individual trading can I do at home? I saw a thread here earlier from the Finra-registered fellow that spooked me a bit. So wondering, is everyone in Finance just working for salary+bonus and not doing any private trading?
