You already had this resume revised by several people, including me. I see you didn't implement a lot of the suggestions you were given, so just go back and reread the earlier thread.

And your interest section is way too generic. You need to add another item or two, and you need to try and make the two existing items not sound like the most boring things ever.

For real. At least put technical analysis, because who actually enjoys stock watching?

Other than that, I've heard it's best practice to put your most recent experiences near the top, so I would switch the order of your Experiences section.
