Pay off your debt and save. Stay active in the markets everyday with paper or marking buy and sell on your chart. Developing winning strategies with a positive expectancy. When you have enough saved, you can then decide what you want to do with it.

Good post, I Second that, pay off debt, save for emergency and then start saving for trading.
#1 reason for failure is not being capitalized enough to trade, time and time again I see it on these threads. Forget about combine funding they’re just selling a pipe dream, trade your own capital when you have saved enough.

Volatility is good for the market and trading.

Preservation of capital is the most important concept for those who want to stay in the trading game for the long haul. - Van Tharp
