What Do You Do For A Living Allan?
The title of this post is the question I get asked all the time when go to political or social gatherings. I am a commodity/futures broker. I buy and sell commodity/futures contracts all day long for different clients all over the country. The best analogy I've ever come up with is to ask people if they've seen the famous 1983 comedy movie "Trading Places" with Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy. I don't actually work as a floor broker in the pit because you would have to live in Chicago or New York for that. I work out of my office here in Huntington Beach, California taking orders & placing trades for people. Here is a clip from the last few minutes of the movie for your enjoyment.
