Joel Kruger started his professional career on a path that you might be able to relate to. He initially went to law school and later became an investment banker.
That may not be a common career path, but many people who get into trading come from some sort of high-level profession. So if this describes you, and you don’t want to be in that profession anymore, this interview might give you an alternative.
When Joel saw a trading floor for the first time, he was hooked. His career in trading started as a currency analyst and he was eventually able to make the jump to full-time trading.
But it wasn’t easy. He admits that even though he knew how to analyze markets, trading them is a totally different story.
There were several times when he wanted to quit. Find out why he stuck with it, what he has learned, the most important trait that he sees in successful traders and much more.
So if you are an investment banker, it’s not too late. If you want an alternative to the crazy hours, Joel’s story might be an option that interests you.
