what can I learn in a proprietary trading firm?

May 11th, 2009, 3:58 am

I'm a financial mathematics student. Since it's very difficult to find an intern, I try to learn something in a local proprietary trading firm. Because my major is financial mathematics, I want to use my quantitative knowledge. But I don't know what I can learn there, it's a day trading firm.Please give me some suggestions. Thanks a lot!

In a day trading firm you can learn what it feels like to lose money and how you deal with it. That is the most important lesson in trading.
