I mean you no disrespect, and I know how hard it can be for someone to leave their home, but... have you ever thought of leaving? There must be some way you can get someplace that is less restrictive to you. If it causes you so much suffering, why is that not an option?

Again, I am not in your position, I cannot judge what you should do.... this is just a simple question, no more.

we are under sanctions & Iran's passport is among 3RD worst in whole world.and usually visa is not issued for us for traveling to other countries.
i spent 15K USD for 3 months residency visa of an asian country.only one bank (out of 12 )accepted opening an account for me as a holder of a valid residency visa and after a while they blocked that account too.

these financial sanctions caused early death for thousands of kid who suffer cancer .we can not import medicine ....
and Iran currency dropped 300% in a year against foreign currencies..

That's terrible. I cannot believe it is all fault of your government. It only makes sense if the country was sabotaged from the inside. Sh!t I better not know....

As for lifestyle, I lead a very modest existence. When you don't have a regular income you get good at saving for a rainy day, and it's a difficult habit to break. I made the mistake, early in my trading career, of over leveraging myself on my personal finances. It's the worst mistake a trader can make. Instead of approaching trading with a free mind there is tremendous pressure to perform. Traders should really live modestly until they are sitting on a mountain of cash and then, keep living modestly.

I was just thinking about this very thing. Very well put.

It's something I wish I would've done a bette job of up to this point in terms of preparing for raining days. That "free mind" is so important and outside financial pressure takes away from that. Trading is at it's core supposed to be a black and white approach to probabilities …. set the target and stop. Let it play out. Everything else is noise.
