Girlfriends and Wives and Trading.

I find my biggest handicap in trading is my wife. (Or is it that by trading I escape the wife? lol). Oh F*uck, seriously, she just came in and read that! I am in big trouble!

She wants me to sociailise with her, by watching T.V. ff sake, I do not call that socialising. 'Can you switch off that computer and spend time with me?' watching T.V, yeah right. At least what I am doing is pro-active.

Going to bed long after she has, is not to good for us, I do not need as much sleep as her anyway. She has just asked me if this is a fad. I don't know? Depends if I think I can make proper money out of this or not.

I am trying to work on longer time frames, to lesson screen times, she still complains.

I work full time, any suggestions, or tips on this balancing act?

By the way she is first the first to complain if we do not have enough money to do something. What am I trying to do, I am trying to find a way of generating extra income for her and our son.

Do you find yourself in a similar situation, how is this situation affecting you?

I felt like she was about to to go down the of route of its trading or me.

Interesting... trade to live or live to trade? What's your goal in trading? How does that have a bearing on your life? You need to discuss things with your wife. Trading does take a lot of time esp when you're learning but the rewards can be that you end up with more time to live your life.

Thanks for you reply,

My ambitious goal, would be that she could give up work and become a full time mother. Which is what she desperately wants. She is consumed with the thoughts that by working she is missing out on being a full time mother to our pre-school son and making it harder to achieve a potential sibling. We have a pretty modest income and mortgage, her input to be replace would be about 700 PCM. I am not interested in more possessions. Maybe I should show her this reply, so she knows my motives?

It seems like a pipe dream, with trading being so hard. At the moment I am working on various candle stick reversal patterns on key s/r areas, with some success but need to improvement on management and exits.

Kind Regards
Jason

you have probably come to realize that you should verbalise this with her, communication is key in a relationship and you dont want to be misinterpreted.

trading is not easy, I found i was just going round in circles at the beginning, each time i came full circle, something would click, then back around I would go until something else clicked.

this endevour can take many years until you start to realise some success, but then again it is not gauranteed that even if you do stick it out, it will work out as you initially thought.

its all a risk.

One of the best books I've ever read is 'Come Into My Trading Room' by Dr Alexander Elder. I know you didn't ask for advice on books, but this really is an excellent book on Trading, and helps you clarify your reasons for trading and what you hope to acheive.

Best of luck, dude.
