I would pick only: "1. Would you still let yourself go ahead and start learning about trading?".

Even though I have been investing for over a decade, I rarely looked at my investments after buying and I knew nothing about trading. However, two years ago, I wrapped up a PhD and had extra disposable income. Both the need to fill a gap in my life with no real challenge and with the extra cash, I started to trade. First, it was equities as that is what I was used to. A little over a year ago, I moved into Futures and I love every second of it. I managed to lose some $$$ at the start (as most people do from what i can see). With much experimentation, I've developed a system that I am happy with, and now I'm breakeven. I've since started to learn Portuguese, to an additional challenge, but when I am not doing that or at work, I'm watching the markets for my specific setups, reading about trading, watching YouTube videos about trading.... I cannot imagine giving it up or telling my past self to not start.

Id have started earlier, learned more math(s), statistics and probability earlier, and not have traded spot forex for so long before switching to futures.
