Its the opposite. MANY traders are engineers or science majors. Many are economics majors. Any thing quantitative is good for a S&T position. But remember trading takes practice, lots of patience, time and just something in the personality. S&T interviews often are MORE technical than IB interviews and they also give a lot of brainteasers.

Please keep in mind that there are ambiguities in the tax code and that every tax situation is subjective. Therefore, FXCM strongly advises you to seek professional advice from a certified public accountant or tax advisor. You can run a 2004 year-end report directly from the platform for proof of your trading activity.
I bought at 105.18, sold at 105.19, 10 mini lots
(105.19 - 105.18) x 10,000 x 10 x 0.95 = 995 right?
How come ive got 9.95 profit instead
I know that JPY is a two-decimal-place currency, so why does the formula not work? What have I done wrong?
Regarding taxes, yea i do pay taxes and its under my mom's name. In the US you list it under other compensation. I have no idea how it would work in the UK.
