CFA, especially level I can give you the basic knowlege of finance...but to understand how product priced or structured, it's better to take MFE. For trading, it's big plus you know the prudocts well, but not necessary to go through MFE to be a trader......I MAY BE WRONG
Not necessary but wouldn't it help a lot of have a MFE when applying for a trading position. Maybe I'm into the wrong thing. The pits are drying up and i just want to find out where the pit traders are evolving to. I was assuming MFE. Could be completely off.
