A message from a former Economics student at Cambridge, about trading and job opportunities. Please email cathy.xu427@gmail.com for more information.

My name is Puzhong, I studied in Economics in Cambridge between 2004 to 2007. When I was there, I began to develop some interests in trading, especially those related to macro economics.  I read a few books about trading, had some thoughts but in general had little clue of what I should be doing and didn’t find what I learnt in economics quite useful when it came to trading. It is not until I fortunately got a job in interest rate trading after graduation I began to have a more systematic view on the so called “global macro trading”.  (It is of course not to say the education we received in Cambridge is not good and I find those who did internship programmes in the firm I work such as Cathy and Yichen had much better idea of what is going on then I did.)

Anyway, if you are interested in global macro trading as I did in my university years, I am happy to offer some help so that you hopefully can have an easier path than I did. Given my personal view that there is much more than one way of becoming a good trader, the help will be more in the forms of asking you questions and letting you find your own answer rather than telling you what to do. (sorry, you still have to work)

What I do require from you is most importantly the interests in trading. I know it is being mentioned by every companies who are recruiting and you might think it is just an empty saying, but I seriously think one should not do something she/he is not interested in. It will be a nightmare late on and it is not very easy to wake up from it. (my general career advice is to do something you would like to do for free)  I would also like to see a reasonable understanding of macro economics (you don’t have to be studying economics, but please do your homework.) This is not to say economics is required to become a trader, there are certainly ways to trade without the need to understand economics at all, but unfortunately, that is not something I can help much on.

I am planning to take one to three people every year. If you are interested, please send me your CV, something to convince me you have the interests in trading and  your favourite trade idea at the moment.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

Week 5 Newsletter

Dear CCS Members,

Please find in this week’s newsletter information about:

1) Final call for manifestos, deadline extended to Feb 23rd

2) AGM and Election

3) Annual Dinner final reminders

======================================================

1) ———————Final call for manifestos———————-

After careful consideration and assessment of the candidates list by the current committee, we have decided to extend the DEADLINE of applications to ALL POSITIONS UNTIL next Thursday. This is mainly due to the fact that a lot of positions (including publicity, ents, sports, IT, and sponsorship officers) still remain uncontested. We believe that the level of competition is not quite enough and it is always in the interest of our members to have more options.

Please submit your manifesto to Mengqing Zou at mz294@cam.ac.uk by 24:00 Thursday, 23rd Feb. (no longer than one A4 page).

Any submission beyond that date will be disqualified, even if you have expressed your interest to our committee members in person.

On next Friday we will send another email with all candidates’ manifestos attached as well as the final details about our AGM.

2)—————————-AGM and Election—————————-

Time: 12:00 – 16:00, Saturday, 25th Feb.

Venue: Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College.

Notice for the candidates:

1. This year, we allow the President and Vice-President candidates to have a second choice for other positions. Please do indicate your second choice on your manifesto. The above two positions will be voted first (separated from other positions), and whoever fail can run for a second committee position of their choice in the next round of voting.

2. English speech is required for President, Vice-President and Publicity Officer candidates. For President and Vice-President candidates, the speech is 5 minutes long; for all other positions, each candidate is given 3 minutes for his/her speech.

3. Q&A session will be carried out after speeches for each position.

3)——————————Annual Dinner——————————

Our annual dinner is now fully booked. Thanks to all the people who have shown interests in this event.

Just three important things to note here:

1) This is a black-tie event.

2) Do NOT bring wine yourself, unless you are willing to pay a corkage fee of £13. Additional wine can be purchased at the dinner.

3) Please arrive at King’s College by 7pm and ask for the Beves Room.

We are looking forward to seeing you tonight.

Introduction

Cambridge University Chinese Cultural Society, usually referred to as CCS, is one of the biggest non-profit organizations run by Chinese students in the University of Cambridge.

Founded in 1998 by a group of enthusiastic Chinese undergraduates, CCS aims to enhance the influence of Chinese culture in Cambridge. Since its founding, CCS has grown tremendously into a society with over 800 members, consisting of students from mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, Southeast Asia and UK. The society regularly organizes a great variety of fun-filled and meaningful events, which not only enriches the university life, but also strengthens the bonds between our members. Furthermore, these activities also unfold the rich and fascinating Chinese culture to other students in Cambridge.

The first annual play <> (<<雷雨>>) struck Cambridge in 2003. The response was overwhelming – Each year, tens of thousands of audiences, including both University students and local residents, are attracted by the annual play. Also in the same year, CCS launched the production of the semester magazine, <> (<<言吾言>>), which is written by talented student writers. The magazine reaches every single member free of charge, and has since become the most influential in the local Chinese community. Apart from these, a range of sports matches against other societies are also organized each year to encourage CCS members to integrate into the University community. CCS also operates Mandarin lessons, and organizes various events such as garden parties, formals and theme park trips etc. to entertain our members.

Today CCS is widely acclaimed by students around Cambridge and it has been continued year after year by the committee members elected in the Annual General Meeting. And it is our members’ support that makes CCS becoming a more integrated, fun, well-organized society. Thank you!

News Letter 06/02/2011

Dear All,

Happy Chinese New Year! This is a reminder that the CCS Annual Dinner and AGM will be held soon in the week after next. Those are going to be the last two major events organized by the current committeee, so please show your enthusiasm and support!

For those of you who are thinking of running for a position in the CCS Committee next year, it is definitely in your interest to come to the annual dinner as it gives you the chance of talking to the current comittee members and showing your commitment to the society. Remember to bring along your best friends to support you!

———–CCS Annual Dinner(Lantern Festival 元宵节 formal)————-

Name: CCS Annual Dinner(Lantern Festival 元宵节 formal)
Date: 17th Feb, 元宵节
Location: Robinson college
Price: 21 for member/24 for non member
Dress Code: Black tie preferably
Wine policy: Negotiating with Robinson college.

Why come? 1 If you think the celebration for Chinese new year is not enough, then please come and celebrate Lantern Festival (元宵节) with us all together! What would be better than many people group together to celebrate the important festival? 2 This is a private dining event which means there will be *ONLY CCS* guests in the hall that day. Imagine a hall full of your friends ONLY and being served. CCS ONLY FORMAL. Hmm, feeling privileged? 3 To those who have not been to Robinson college before, I strongly suggest you to come. Not only because it is a lovely college with their beautiful garden, but they have reputation of HIGH QUALITY FOOD. I guess most people will not come to Robinson often since it is not in city centre. So don’t miss the chance! 4 This would be the last few events organized by this committee and certainly last event organized by me. So I want to see you all there. I bet all the committee would feel the same!! 5 The annual dinner is the official pre-election event for annual general meeting which is when the election happens on 19th Feb. To those who are running for next year committee positions, I can guarantee that you will have disadvantage to those who come if you can’t make it. My advice for them: bring/buy enough wine and be prepared for frequently making drink toss (敬酒). 6 Wine will be included hopefully. Quantities are not yet decided. Possibly 2 glasses each or a shared bottle between several people.

As I listed so many reasons(my fingers hurt now..), join us if you are free that night.

Payment method: Online Transfer: Name: Mr Boruo Xu Sort Code: 77-14-05 Account No: 16014368 As usual, after wiring the money please send me(xb209) an email with your Full NAME, CrsID, Membership status, Number of tickets purchasing and special dietary requirement. I will confirm with you once I receive the money AND the email. For any further enquires, please contact me on email or text(07881902502).

Last Ents love,
