Don't we day trade, so we don't have to work any more...this would just be the next step!


This is one of the myths of trading and this attitude is probably the number one reason so many traders join the nameless graveyard of fallen traders.

This is a JOB.

This is the hardest easy money I have ever earned!

I'd probably try to find someway to profit from investing in thorium energy since it seems very promising and environmentally sound.

Agreed with most parts, maybe except this. I personally avoid investing in anything because I like it, or think it has value.

If you wouldn't take the money you are nuts!! The whole point of trading is to make money.
This would save me a ton of time.

I was wondering why you even asked the question.

If trading is entertainment for you, you are exactly the kind of person I want to trade against. I have a cool indicator, wanna try it?

And also there is nothing to prove. Noone cares how you trade. Actually if you tell people you made money by trading they will just get jelous and think you don't deserve it.

No~ Trading is more than money

I think trading is not just a job or method to earn mony, but also and more a way to explore oneself.

I read some articles and books all saying that do not care about the profit or loss from your trade while trading but learn to trade well. The goal of trading to me is to pratice and learn. Profit is accompanied by the excellence of controlling one's own mind, emotion and of course with experience and luck.

No matter 10B, 10M or other figure can offer me a better way to look into myself so deeply and see the fear and greedy so clearly. So I will not give up trading for money.

Absolutely, without a second thought. For 20 million, I would need to think about it.

This is a tough question that I've thought about recently because I consider trading as a lifestyle and an activity outside of it's money incentive. I'm curious how other people see trading.

I understand one billion dollars may be too stressful to deal with so the offer could stand at any amount less than that if desired.

Get your head checked!
