Agree with this as well. It's like a game where I have to figure out the rules and then learn how to play it. Intellectually I enjoy that. Like you I ensure that other income streams keep me stable so I can just enjoy the challenge.For me, trading is an intellectual challenge. Obviously, money is one thing that motivates everyone. I’m no different but as I have other sources of income I don’t trade specifically for money. It’s fun to trade, I not only get to challenge my mind but also my psychology. Trading can be a roller coaster of emotions and trying to stay sane in the wild swings helps me to strengthen my emotional side.
