Thanks: 204 given,
Personally I'd love to make a career out of this business to be able spend time seeing my son growing up will be a great side effect of it. But for now I work 15 hours a day in my day job to support my family, so trading can practically only be a source of marginal income.
Once I feel I've broken a ceiling in earning 'X' amount in trading profits from constantly trading, I'll then consider switching to full time.
But then calling it part time doesn't do it justice because every hour of the night I'm reading or learning about better ways to run my investment book. So in that sense even if not by intent it's full time :-)
