If you were offered one billion dollars to quit trading would you accept the deal?

If you were offered one billion dollars to quit trading for life would you accept the deal?

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.

I was thinking about lowering the offer to one million and seeing people's responses but then I figured some people would think they're worth more than that in the end.

I was hoping for someone to say No lol

This is probably the same thing I'd do. I'd miss trading, but the deal in and of itself is a good trade because it's more than I'd project myself to make realistically over the course of my entire life time.

It would have been the best trade that I could have ever made..

Same here.

Hmm...while taking a second guess, is there a way to negotiate the amount yet ?
