BECOMING A FUTURES BROKER
Is this a good time to become a futures/ forex broker? This is for a person who making a career change. Do brokers at a firm like yours spend most of their
time trading or selling?
Great question, and you値l likely be surprised by my answer. If a family member or close personal acquaintance were to ask my opinion about starting a
new career as a traditional futures broker, I壇 probably counsel them against it. Is now a great time to consider a career in the futures and forex industry? Absolutely! But as a commission-based broker or salesman? I知 not so sure.
