Why do you trade?

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.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

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.
