Are you worried about the big break in your career? You must also be concerned about losing touch with your area of profession. How can you compete with the upcoming highly competitive freshers in the matter of subject knowledge? Sit and read the high piles of the academic books?? Not at all practical in a short time when you have other big responsibilities in your own family and your books are of much older editions.

 

I faced the exact situation a few months ago when I planned to restart my profession but realized that I was far behind the status of the subject. While I was conversing with a newly found friend of mine who was working in the same profession as mine, but till more recently, the idea of venturing into Forex trading came into my way.

 

How I made the out-of-subject profession as a subject-oriented career

 

I did not have any experience in the sector of finance and economics nor did I know anyone working in the trade market. After many weeks of research and reading of helpful resources, I became familiar the concepts, terms, trading processes and multiple ways of entering the market. I found out a way in which I can:

  • Earn quick money
  • Stick to my old profession of engineering
  • Bow the seeds of entrepreneurship, and
  • Stay at home and manage household responsibilities

 

Trading has become very much online now and a part-time activity for many traders. Trading algorithms have become the trend now and with every improvised trading robot, comes increasing number of customers. I found my space precisely here and to create a trading algorithm I required the following technical support:

  • Reliable computer hardware and software combination
  • Knowledge of statistics and probability
  • Logical methods of decision-making
  • Working knowledge of computer scripts and programming languages

 

Being a former software engineer, these requirements were readily available to me and all I had to do was to brush up some forgotten basics and the recent technical developments. Everything was set and I made myself updated about the current trends in the market and the direction to build the robot to extract the most critical market data and give out the most accurate trading instructions to the users.

 

The demo was run, the trial was done and the first recipient was me, the second being my friend. My algorithm is now on a high with more users coming and I am on a high with trying to make my creation the most competitive.
