Default DSP engineer in Wall Street?

I am trying to change my career and need your advice.

I have few years of experience in embedded DSP and thinking of joining
the Wall Street. I don't know much about the finance industry but looks
like there are plenty of signals to process. Of course, optimization
and implementation skills should be little useful if any in Wall st.
What about speech, video, digital comm algorithm knowledge? What's the
chance for a DSP engineer to get and survive the job in Wall St. Thanks
in advance.

The way I look at it....anybody that can "really" predict those curves
doesn't need a job...

And the ones who don't have a good chance of ending up in cardiac
intensive care, I heard...

I suggest you this book

Rocket Science for Traders: Digital Signal Processing Applications.

It seems to me very close to your interests.

you'll find it at amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/047...Fencoding=UTF8

good luck

Jack

Just don't expect to make any money off of it.

Congrats! You are the first one to spot Russell's contradiction.
Usually, most posters prefer to attack me using Russell's words
because my nick is Just Cocky!
