Millennials these days are taking a proactive approach to investing and trading to continue the 40-year trend of individuals taking a more active stance in their investments. Now armed with more technology than their predecessors and tools like Twitter and Google, millennials are arguably poised to become the most active generation of individual investors.
Julian Marchese, 17, got into trading after he bought his first stock at age 8. Now he's a global macro trader who has made appearances on Bloomberg TV and CNBC.
"I mainly trade very liquid macro markets utilizing a global macro / quantitative approach. I utilize fundamental research to determine the given catalysts in a specific market, and then I dive down through quantitative study analysis to determine trade management."
He has a passion to trade, a passion for understanding the markets and a passion for making money.
"My favorite trading book(s) by far would be the entire Market Wizards series (especially the original). Those books are choc-full of market wisdom. I also love Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, The Daily Trading Coach by Brett Steenbarger, and The Alchemy of Finance."
"My biggest trading hero and industry role model would definitely have to be Paul Tudor Jones. Not only is it his amazing career track record & valuable wisdom, but also his involvement in changing the world for the better with his Robin Hood Foundation. I aspire to follow in his footsteps. "
"I was able to accomplish one of my career-long goals of connecting with one of the largest hedge fund managers in the world!"
"I have many! My next steps are to go to university and continue to work on my two major projects, Marchese Financial (MarcheseFinancial.com & @JulianMarchese) & Leaders Investment Club while building my investment track record. I then hope to someday launch my own investment management firm and help change the world for the better through investment!"
