President Obama Wants You To Become A Trader

President Obama Wants You To Become A Trader

From the transcript of the SOTU:

“None of us can predict with certainty what the next big industry will be, or where the new jobs will come from. Thirty years ago, we couldn’t know that something called the Internet would lead to an economic revolution.”

“What we can do – what America does better than anyone – is spark the creativity and imagination of our people. We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook.”

“In America, innovation doesn’t just change our lives. It’s how we make a living.”

— President Obama

Isn’t that what traders do…innovate? Traders have gigantic creative sparks and imagination. And we combine those aspects with the need to learn new skills almost daily. We need to read like we’re in the CIA. We need to eat right and have healthy spiritual lives and exercise.

We develop and deploy models that are either systematic or discretionary in order to do something else that is terribly American: we make money.

Fight the power. Become a trader. Join the capitalists.

    I just want to say that the car was invented in Europe. On another note, I especially liked what you say about reading like we are in the CIA, I think it is absolutely impossible to be a successful trader without reading A LOT.
