he gets bored because Equities are easy and then blows all of his money on FX, booze, Roulette, and Poker.

Family/Friends/Fun etc... Step away from the computer Is what I reccommend.

Joking apart, I've just qualified for the next round in a poker tourney :LOL: if I get through then it's a trip to London for the final table of Nine. Top prize is a new Aston Martin DB9 coupe. It was a freeroll entry :)



Spare time ! whats that then :-0

Well I find observing a bit of porn now and then helps rouse noble emotions that can assist a traders observation skill set.

So maybe that's one to lay on to the firm ?

I generally do 4 fitness activities a week, 1 5ml run, 1 circuit training, 1 20ml bike ride, cut down on being a gym rat, just the 1 cardio/weights session at the gym for a couple of hours. I water ski and kite surf when time/weather permits, used to take off by myself for the odd break with my tent but have done that less since discovering trading...Other hobbies? World cinema is a big passion of mine and, I collect and restore *stuff* of value...;)
Spare time mainly taken up with the kids/family, we try and have 2 holidays in the summer/1 winter and weekends away when possible...

Oh, I'm not a prop trader, so no idea what they do..

Sorry to hijack your thread ( the poker freeroll entry reminded me of this story )

A hobby for you perhaps :LOL:

I suppose if you watch 8 videos at once then it's good training for the eye. (Which one, you think.)

If you are the active action man sort with strong nerves then I can suggest an activity that also pays VERY well.

Get yourself a long range camera and then get those saleable pics of the rich and famous !!
