To be honest, I think those guys are a bit nuts.

I think the guys that push this to the extreme by not giving any margin for error are more foolish that brave.

Just in case you fancy giving it a try.....

I seen that video before, brutal.

I usually have that same mindset when looking at other extreme activities. But there is something about this that I am attracted too. I'm not sure why but it looks beautiful and I can hardly believe that its possible for a human to fly down a mountain like that.

I love the idea of personal flying and flight. I wouldn't mind flying like that but only if I was like "superman". Otherwise it's just bush flying in a plane for me. (sim)

I did tandem skydiving a few years ago and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Hopefully I can make trading work so I can explore this subject more in the future.

Why is trading a prerequisite for this?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I think that at this point in my life, trading is a prerequisite for almost all my future hobbies. I have a couple hobbies that keep me sane right now, but anything that will cost a significant amount of money will have to wait till I'm more financially viable. Hopefully its trading that will take me to where I want to be.

In my humble opinion, you would have a very hard time trading, if your objective was to extract money out of the markets to finance the things you love in the first place.

By the way thanks for sharing saiga. Look at this video, especially from 09:10.



No doubt these guys are a bit nuts, but they overcame their fear for their passion and I respect them for that.

Trading is my passion, but I do have other hobbies. When I first started trading It was to obtain wealth but as time passed and money was lost, I developed a passion for trading in itself. So in a way trading is a lot like any other passion one might have but in order to focus on other things I must focus on trading first.

I definitely trade for the hope of future returns and wealth but trading in order to do extreme activities is not my goal. Flying just fascinates me and I thought I'd share. I can't imagine ever do what those guys do, that's way to crazy. But I would not mind getting into skydiving in the future.
