Good article. It's not easy making a living out of trading until the light bulb well and truely goes on. The professional commnunity get salaries. That's why all money mangers charge a fee or invest your money for better return than what they give you. Hedgies charge their 2 and 20, mutuals 2%ish. When you have $10Bn of assets under management say like a hedgie, that's $200m a year in minimum fees to run the enterprise and pay your salaries. Nice. Ideally, to take the stress away from trading, you need an income come what may. That's how a lot of pensioners get into it. Getting yourself to a positon where you have an income, passive or otherwise to pay the cost of living is essential. I've been at it a few years now. Still learning everyday. Prefer trading US stocks... volatile ones flagged up by free screeners helps. Sometimes stocks in the news can do well too. Successful traders that I see making money take big bites out of small moves otherwise you can be at the mercy of gaps against you and analyst down/up grades. I trade US stocks on Schwab platform. Commissions not too bad. Spreads are market, usually at 1c. Spreads for US stocks on IG outrageous so I don't bother. Schwab platform is OK but charting is lacking compared to ProRealTime. If only Schwab would provide an interface for ProRealTime...... Chuck, how about it? Anyway, enough of my wittering. Thanks for the history of your journey. You are not alone.

thanks NVP

I am still hanging in there for now....

bump.

I came across an article last week that resonated a lot with me in terms of my trading journey that I shared on here some months ago.

It essentially said that a big driver of whether we achieve something or not is how much hard work and pain we are willing to endure in order to get it.

Great read if you have a few minutes to spare, here's the link:

The Greatest Question
