How can I become a stock trader?
I just graduated from college with a degree in Finance and am enrolled in the Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) level 1 exam.
I want to be a trader (I like equities and emerging markets) but whenever I look it up on company websites, the jobs are never available or the deadline has passed.
How else can I find out about opening or get my foot in the door? Is starting in something much different (financial advising) and then moving over a good rout? Going to graduate school then trying?
