open a journal, if you prove your consistency some scout will contact you like those guys

Sorry for being slow and apologises for my poor English: what does exactly to open a journal means?!

I looked for a job as a trader or anything else like that for several months, in and outside Italy, in particular in UK, through the majors job seeking websites and official firm's websites; I can easily prove consistency on a long annual period bases with real data and on a couple of years on a real bank statement but I didn't get a single contact or a single interview...

I'm afraid to tell anyone that, in my little and personal experience, to find and get a job as a trader or anything else in the financial sector, doesn't look that easy at all!

It's sure hard to find someone that will offer you a job and a paycheck just after an interview but I think in London there are many prop firms. But most of them requires you to prove consistency working with them. So you have to afford to live there at your own expenses and maybe also fund your trading to show some initial result. Have you given a look to Futex?

Thanks a lot for your tips. Futex looks very interesting but it doesn't fit for my needs. I would like to find an employ in a firm. Until that moment I will act as a freelance with my own funds.

Just wondering if there is any chance to find a DayTrader job (worldwide) or Investor for my trading.

Coming back to the original topic: which is, in your opinion, the best route to follow to get hired in a firm as a futures trader or any similar?

The channels are always the same, so I think you are doing it right.
But in my opinion, I think there are very few prop firm working on futures that really hire(with a contract, salary and so on) and I know none of them.
Anyway if you are looking for a career, prop trading may be the wrong job. I would look to something else in the industry.
If instead you are looking for an enviroment where you can develop your skills and be in contact with other traders, there may be some opportunities if you can fund yourself at least at an initial stage.
If you just need more funds to support your trading, there are other way then to look for a job and the first is the market itself.

it depends from your study curriculum and qualifications, but there are many position that could apply. As regards trading, you con look something on the execution side or sales. Or if you want to move out of the screen, settlement department and compliance could apply.
But there are many kind of positions out there, so if you can enter into a merchant bank into any role would be a good step forward to a brilliant career

It may be that by now you have found employment but if not, providing you can demonstrate consistency and you are interested in London, there may be prop shops or training firms (of which there are many) who may take you on as a mentor to train the people who join their shop/firm. From then on, with a couple of years' experience under you belt, you could then apply for a position with some hedge funds or bigger financial institutions. In London especially you can really be spoilt for choice if you're good. It also depends on the kind of career you're after.

Thank you all for your comments and recommendations. It really broaden my horizons regarding prop trading, investor's requirements, etc. I really appreciate all your effort.

I consider to start new trading journal next week (trading FDAX, CL, E-minis).

Have a nice Sunday!

Good day, Kube777

Sir, were you able to land a trader job or get an investor? I am in a similar situation trading NQ futures right now. My trading style is similar to yours with the same statistics on my trades. I am relocating to Vancouver soon and was able to find out about DV Trading in downtown Vancouver that hires traders as employees. Please let me know of your success or obstacles you had to bypass. Appreciate your response!
