When did you start trading?

How old were you when you started trading your own real-money account? Are you a trading protege who go going young? Perhaps it was during college or university. Maybe you were late to the game, picking it up after a long career.

I started about 2.5 years ago, doing it as a career (but having worked for 5 years previously). I now no longer do it for a career but do it in my own time on a longer timeframe.
