You're right, it all comes to that everybody wnats to get to the first category of successful traders. And everybody does in their own way. Even if you just copy trades, youu can make quite good money. I don't see anything bad about that.

All i know is I trade forex and oil with Oanda and im aloud to bet money that a particular move in price is going to happen. I can either manually manage the duration of the trade or I can set take profit targets and stop losses. I can get out of the trade any time I want...

Im beginning to wonder how much different working in a futures prop firm would differ to how I trade now.
Be seiously seriously careful about working for a futures prop firm or any prop firm for that matter. Their target is usually YOU. You mention "bet money". Is this written in to your trading plan???? You tried Options for a week???? To cap it all you cannot even spell "allowed". Trading involves a whole lot more than that. There are brilliant people on here ready to tear your weaknesses to shreds so
you have something to build up on. You should be the only one who knows your weaknesses because you have written in your trading plan how you are going to overcome them. Good points we play to naturally, bad points we have to overcome because good does not cancel out. Each one of your weaknesses can wipe you out as a trader.

How many different types of trading is there?
Is it just Stocks and Derivatives over all and then one could further breakdown derivatives to forex, commodities etc...

I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me break this down.
you need experience
1 man like Scalping, other like long term Fundamental trading based on Forex News Calendar trading, other people like MAthematic based automated systems, pipsing, indicators... etc) also in market there lots of instruments. Now many traders trade Bitcoin.. not only FX pairs or Stocks

But first of all when you start trading at real account you must learn broker conditions and client agreement, some brokers do not accept scalping and swing type, some brokers say that you do not have to cloe order < 6 pips of profit, or pause between orders must be > 5 min..etc, very careful with that

Thank you very much for the input sir.

I have look a little into some of the terms between my broker and I, such as checking to see if scalping was permitted. But I should look more closely.

Thanks
