It all depends really. The best position a home trader can be in is to have really low overheads, no debts etc. Take the redundancy, sell the house, live in a camper van and away ya go. Be free like a bird and sh!t on people!
make sure then new job isn't copywriting... To be serious for a mo' why can't you make it work? Suggestion; why not finally obligate x amount of the package, perhaps 10%, in order to see if you can finally make it work for you? Excuse the pun but there's often a pivot point where you have to make it work/or it clicks... whatever your decision and looking at the threads where I've come across your involvement, you appear to be one of the good guys, you've always taken the leg pulling with good grace and humour, wish you luck whatever you decide.
Just to echo what BS has said, have one last fling but only lose what you can afford to lose. If you lose for this last time, walk away and don't return. Setting these boundaries before you start and really meaning it might just shove you into trading profitably. At worst you'll know it's not for you and move on with your life.
my problem was in the beginning I threw a few £k into an account and quickly lost it and more as I had no idea what I was doing......I then studied, learned and demoed. Over the next year or so in between demoing I blew £100 here, £200 there in small amounts though. I couldn't make it work. I think that maybe if I had 1 more try with say £1k or £2k it might be different as I would be better capitalised.
