in Getting Started

By and large, being smart in any business endeavor means keeping expenses low, and profit margins high. In other words, keeping losses small and letting winners run. Unfortunately, too many new traders look at trading as a get rich quick solution and don’t treat it as they would a legitimate business venture in which profitability comes only with lots of work, discipline, and dedication, and the proper training. For those of you that are already treating trading as a business, I commend you for your courage, dedication, and hope that your trading prospers for many years to come.

trading as a business

He is of course correct but so many people start unrealistic businesses-so many idiotic institutions fund unrealistic businesses too.
I have now been posting on my buddy's website [Link Removed] but in the UK there are so few of us. I am on a mission to get more people trading- but most folk are lazy and their lack of knowlege makes them suspicious. So, they gift their money to some dreadful fund.
I'm enthusiastic about all forms of trading but I just happen to love, and make money from options. All the best. David
