Well, there maybe exceptions but I am yet to see a day-trader being consistently profitable for at-least, say, 5-years. In tennis or golf the ratio of professionals versus wannabes is 1:10000. That means for every tennis player making money from playing championships there are 10000 others who don't make any money from it. I am talking about Day-Trading as a means of earning a livelihood.

TST has 100s of profitable day traders that are funded and trading. I don't know if they have been around for 5 years or not.

The thing, when you have found your edge and you KNOW it... you don't need to ask anyone else, or try to prove or disprove if it's possible. You are profitable, and you know WHY you are profitable. That is professional confidence. Not merely making money but knowing why you do.

You just haven't found your edge. Don't give up bud. All the best.
