Trade part time, night job part time, career when I get a chance to do it, and fun the rest of the time. Goal is to be full time income one day where trading supports everything else....but always doing something else.....trading is a means to an end....but somehow never ends...
I like to have a life but somehow I always seem to be thinking about the market someway or another....
I trade part time. I have a full time job, but with the way my work week is I can trade 2-4 full days per week. I have been at it for over 10 years. I go through phases of profitability, but can't seem to be consistent. I am trying to take it slow this time and not put pressure on myself. I am working more on sim and focusing on my trading stats which has brought a level of pressure to sim that I haven't had before. I am trying to achieve the top step criteria as a goal.
That's where I am at. I hope to one day trade full time and quit the day job.
