Trillions of dollars every day go through financial district of New York. Many of the wealthiest people in the United States and the world attribute their fortune being made in the financial markets. After realizing that there is plenty of money to be made, it poses the question how does one learn to trade? While people can be taught terms, indicators, and general knowledge, there is a type of mentality and talent that one needs to have to be a good trader. If one can create a great program or have a great strategy to make money in the financial district, then starting a company and managing money for other people is not far off in their future. The focus of our IQP is learning how to trade in the forex market and seeing how realistic it is to start a company off of what we learned.
