It is a tough business and can take its toll emotionally and financially if not careful. But glad we all get a chance to participate and make our own way. Odds are against it but those who put in the work can forge a real business. That business allows for freedom from having to do things for someone else. You get to do it for yourself and your family. You don't have to spend your life serving the dreams of someone else but can make your own.
We all do things differently and have different view points about the best way to do it. I enjoy the mechanical vs discretionary debate on the board and personally have some strong opinions. But fact we all get to try it the way we want to try it is a gift.
Opportunity does not always equal success but I am thankful for the opportunity
"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
