Starting From The Ground Up

Feedback in:

Hi Mike, I’m looking for a way to connect with a trend following firm that can give me the chance to trade with a small account. I graduated last May with a B.A in economics from Baruch College. I have been testing and improving the trend following system I’m using for the past 2 years. I’m ready to exploit the system but I do not know where to begin. What would you advise me to do?

Raise capital, i.e. family, friends, etc. Very straightforward. It doesn’t matter how you do it or where it comes from–just do it.

  1. He’s right – just do it. However, it will be much smoother if you’ve got the money yourself to fund it yourself. Your money is what gives your company a shot at staying power.

    And, raising assets is hard. Being in your 20s is a negative to most potential investors, unfortunately.

    No harm in waiting a few years and building up your savings first.
