Why would we want to? It's fun, it's interesting, and it's often fascinating. And as one grows older, keeping the "mind" active is critical. 90-120m a day and then the rest of the day to do as one pleases. Beats sitting around watching your toe nails turn yellow.

A long long time ago, I asked my mentor about his motivation, thinking the cliches like "I do it to make a lot of money" or the prestige, etc.

I sensed my being completely wrong, when he said "trading. I love trading. When my family goes off boating on the weekend, I'm at home coding strategies and fixing my charts or whatever. I will do this until I can't see, and then I'll figure out some way to do it by braille."
