After receiving a degree in economics, I began my trading career over a decade ago in the equity finance division of a Wall Street investment bank. It was there that I learned the importance of economic indicators to finance a firm or structure a portfolio. After trading and learning to create financial products I left the investment bank and went to work at the largest Nasdaq market maker in the U.S. I now trade equities, futures, options and currencies. It is this experience that I hope to share with the students.
