Do you mean a profession other than trading that you can walk in and out of as you choose?

Pick a degree you like the sound of and will likely have legs (not media studies, etc), get yourself into a Russell Group University, have a laugh for 3 years, get a job you like the sound of do it for a few years, carry on trading in the background or do it as your main job.

Trading is pretty addictive, I am neglecting my business now but hey it is between Xmas and NY now so everyone is in zombie mode and I am also rather quiet so my employees must be wondering what is going on

I have vowed to trade the daily charts in the future because I do not want to neglect my bread and butter. Come Jan 3rd I am going to have a good 1 or 2 weeks kicking people's asses to make sure they know I am still around and on the ball. After that I will have some time for some research.

I love my business and I love trading. If I was stuck in some dead end job the perhaps I would think about trading full time but I would be pretty sure I was damn good first. Leaving your job in the hope of trading your way to financial freedom could be dangerous in a gamblers hands

Do geology and something numerate and you could work for oil :S

could trade, make markets or do something more interesting like discovery

The worlds your oyster, pick what you want
