I am not used to this kind of thing, it is the first time that I come on a site like this one to make a fundraiser.
In high school I was admitted as a HEC prep, but for various reasons I did a degree in chemistry. My goal in preparation was to become a trader and I never actually forgot this goal and I always wanted to become one without really daring to take the plunge.
Last summer an unfortunate event came to shake everything up, the natural but sudden death of my father at an age too young (56 years).
So having a little sister who just got her baccalaureate and who needs help to build her life (she was admitted in preparation) and a brother a little younger than me and my mother with whom we live. have started in parallel with my current work a real investment activity, you can be an independent trader on your own without any qualification requirement.
I plan to do a BA in Correspondence Finance, then a Master in the same way to deepen my knowledge in the field and be able to pass the CFA which is an industrial diploma (specific to the financial industry). Maybe one day work in the trading room. I know I also need serie 7 (certification in the trading room)
I know that most of you are not necessarily a positive image of this profession, the media often describe us as responsible for everything, as "speculators" seeking only profit, but the reality is that it is a fairly difficult activity, very regulated and taxed. Rather analytical, of type 2 + 2 = X, we can clearly see here that the answer (the variable X) is linked to the data and there is no room for a personal opinion on the data, and in finance you have to pass a lot of time analyzing data, companies' balance sheets, ECB, IMF or other policy, things that fascinate me, which is not necessarily the case for everyone, for example who Coca Cola or Pepsi Co will sell the most products during the next quarter for example :)
For those of you who know, I follow the financial theory of one of the most famous finance teachers who has ever lived Mr. Benjamin Grossbaum Graham, who advocates investing, in simple it is an investment in good father’s companies with an activity generating stable profits and an important role in a country for example Engie, Bouygues or Carrefour, especially with predictable future income. An example of a company that does not respect Graham's rules is Facebook for example because it is not certain that this company will exist in ten years while Carrefour will still be there or Engie or even Danone. It is a form of long-term investment, not speculative trading, as I am neither a Prophet nor a visionary to predict the market, but seek a reasonable profit in a risk-free position.
The main element is capital, to be able to work you need capital, I have already set aside a sum to be able to work and monthly I reinvest the capital of my salary. But it is not enough yet unfortunately, I do not know if it is a good thing that I ask You because in the bottom there are so many projects more impacting and important than mine. I put the sum of 10000 €, even if it is only a part of this sum I would be eternally grateful to you, this will allow me to work in this activity.
Sorry for the length and the personal side of my message for certain aspects.
Thank you for those who read until the end.
Sincerely to All.
