I'm almost 26, with a degree in finance, and have worked in finance ever since I graduated uni.
My first job out of uni was as a proprietary trader trading interest rate futures (90d bank bills, 3yr/10yr bonds). I did that for just over a year. My next role was at a large national financial advisory firm, where I executed trades in the stock market for advisers/clients. I did that for a year and a half. I then moved on to become a junior associate at a boutique high net worth financial advisory firm. There, I shadowed a senior adviser for a year. I have also been a self-employed trader, mostly trading speculative shares on the ASX.
7 months ago, I left my job to try and start my own business. I want to teach as many people as possible about basic, non-biased, no-advice concepts of the stock market, so I taught myself animation (Adobe After Effects) & created a 12 part animated series simplifying various concepts such as market cap, depth of market, areas of support/resistance etc.
All videos will be uploaded for free, and links to my current videos are:
- What is a share? (simplified) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPXWhH_JJz4
- What is a stock market (& Aussie stockbrokers) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSx6zevf18g
I'm now in the process of trying to get some subscribers for my channel, which is proving to be difficult so far.
Oh, I also made a series trailer showcasing a bit of animation from each of my videos. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQoQEbKK-zc
