Hi traders!

A friend of mine has asked me to help her find online traders for her school thesis.
To be able to go further, she has a few questions. Would you guys be so kind to help her out?

1. How old are you?

2. How often do you trade on average?

Daily, weekly or yearly

3. How long have you been trading?

4. How were you introduced to online trading?

5. What is your motivation to trade? Could you explain your motivation?


Appreciate your time! Thank you!!

And why did you put this in 'off topic'. Off-topic is for non-trading stuff.

It would be interesting to see some answers because it does add some new questions to the mix, or better yet consolidates them.

Hi there, sorry for posting it in the wrong forum. I didn't see that I could post in "Traders hideout" as I could only see subforums that didn't fit into my questions. Thanks for moving it.

Yes, I hope you and Big Mike could answer these questions if you have the time? Because I do need to know the answers to the other questions too.

Thanks in advance.
