I am a trader from 4 years, but I am not able to find a trading job in London. What is necessary to be a trader in the city?

I have sent my CV in London. I have worked with a company specialized in Trading Systems (Tradestation platform) for about a year, as a Junior trader for another company, and as a proprietary trader for 4 years (my own capital).
I have principally worked to my mental and emotive attitudes, to be a trader.
I have the desire to grow with a company, with other traders.
Please can you give me some advice to be recruited by a proprietary trading firm?
Is there something more that I must do to work as a trader in London?If you are making good profits trading on your own then why do you want to join a company and split the profits??





as I have written on email, I have called T3 and sent my CV. Thank you very much for your advice.


for the same reason (I think) because you do this job: passion for trading. And I want also to grow with a company, to learn more things with other traders and to transfer in a big city like London or NYC. Thank you for your answers


NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
