Hi,

I am working as a software engineer and have 2 years experience in java development.
Have also cleared SCJP and SCWCD recently. Preparing for NCFM now.
I have been passionate about algorithmic trading and Investment banking in general. Java is the hottest language in this area I believe.

Should NCFM be good to start with? I know of doing CFA/CMT but they require experience in financial markets for being eligible. What options do you think are available for me.

Any advice and pointers to resources will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

NCFM is suit for investment.
If you can pass the CFA, which will be more helpful.

thanks Austin.


I have the CFA at the back of my mind. It requires experience in investment field before one can give the exam/register. And I do not have any investment experience.
 
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
