Dear Ms. Bartram,
An associate informed me about the FX Trader job that will soon be available with Silicon Valley Bank and I would like to take this opportunity to apply for this position.
I am an experienced foreign exchange trader with a master’s degree in business. I understand how unpredictable and stressful this business can be but I have the patience and the skills to make successful trades. My experience includes accurately assessing the risk factors associated with each trading option available. This information is vital in order for clients to determine what course of action to take, based on how much they are willing to risk.
The secret is knowing exactly what you are looking for and only trading when it is beneficial for the client but it takes discipline to wait for the best options to come along. Investing someone else’s money in foreign exchange activities takes a hard working, dedicated individual with lots of skill and experience working within the market and that is exactly what I have to offer your company.
You need someone that is knowledgeable, dependable and honest that knows when to trade and when to walk away. I am that person and I am certain that I am the best applicant for this job. I have a system that works and satisfied clients as references to prove it, which I have included in my resume along with a comprehensive look at my work history and skills.
I look forward to meeting with you in person and you can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
