JLN PRESS ROOM PICK OF THE WEEK
10 MOST CLICKED STORIES OF THE WEEK
FROM JOHN LOTHIAN NEWS
In 2019, congressional Republicans and Democrats have at least one thing they all seem to agree upon…none of them trust Facebook.
JLN’s two-day MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity concluded on Wednesday as another 12 industry veterans took the stage to help industry interns prepare for a potential career in the financial field – or any field, really. There was some advice applicable to any profession, such as “know what your goals are,” “find something you’re passionate about and submerge yourself,” and “never stop learning,” as well as some information specific to trading options and futures.
Cryptocurrencies and blockchain were not the only themes at the MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity event at the headquarters of Trading Technologies on Tuesday, but they kept cropping up.
