|Author||Topic: One day in the life of an equity derivatives trader|
|I'm going to start a new job in equity DA and I am interested in any sources (websites, books) that could give me any relevant insight regarding the day to day activity of equity derivatives traders.
Thank you in advance for your help.
|These books helped me out a lot when I first started.
1. Pit Bull: Lessons from Wall Street's Champion Trader
Author: Dave Morine
2. Stock Market Wizards: Interviews with America's Top Stock Traders
Author: Jack D. Schwager
3. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator: The Wall Street Classic about the Life & Times of Jesse Livermore
|No books will help you. Just be quick on your feet and use common sense.|
|they really don't expect you to know shit, so as the previous post says, be quick on your feet and be ready to be someone's bitch for a while.|
Recommend one book to u, I think it will help u a lot. "one up on the street" ,written by Peter Lych,which could wide ur horizon, the real experience is not limited in the theory books.
Another book that will do you some good is by Eugene A. Kelly, CFA, "For What It's Worth". Apply the concepts and you will own me an advisor fee.
