Generally to work in a fund house you need a CMT degree. I know people who are working in broking houses as technical analysts/ chartists but themselves cannot trade. They have years of experience in giving trading calls and qualify to work as analysts. A succesfull trader doesnt really fit there.
So very important for traders to be well funded. There is no definition for well funded.
Raising funds is very difficult. bank out of question. To manage others funds require networth of 2 Cr => portfolio manager.
That leaves pure traders only with training,
For technical guys there is coding api, tech support and theres a new line of creating bots which will fire orders in others accounts.
