I was just wondering how many people on this forum trade full time as in that is there full time job and not just on the side? And for those who do trade full time is it possible to be make a fairly descent living at it? I dont mean be loaded rich just make a living, understanding that it takes a lot of discipline and time to reach a goal.
In most cases you either make a lot or nothing at all. This is simply the nature of trading liquid markets. If you have a method of making money, you can just increase size. It's finding a profitable approach that is the hard part....
I am closing this thread since it is the same subject, and I want to avoid a split topic.
