Since we need money to trade, this begs the question of where we are going to get the money to trade aside from trading for prop firms or making money off trading. Sure, we can get just any job to make money but if you’re passionate about trading and want to have a job centered around trading (or something that can help your trading) as you’re building capital, what are some good ways to do it? Here are some ideas I thought of and how to go about it. These are just my guesses, I’m not trying to give advice. Does anybody have any experience with any of the jobs below or have any other ideas?
-building algos for other traders (if you’re completely new to programming, start with free Python courses?)
-doing taxes for other traders (not sure how to go about this, maybe there are community college courses you could take to learn how to do people’s taxes)
-writing for trading newsletters (maybe contact your favorite trading newsletters and see if they need new writers. You’d probably have to show them some samples)
-assistant to a trader (not too sure about this. You’d probably need connections)
-find some other way to generate trading content (some traders do podcasts, blogs, etc. But you’d probably have to already have a good trading record before writing for the masses)
-sell a trading course (jk because Babypips already has the best and it’s free!)
Any other ideas?
