Full time trading is hard.
There is no question about that. Pretty much everything you’ve ever heard about the psychological strains, the isolation, the pressure, the stress – is true. Not to mention the time invested, the knowledge needed, the discipline required, and the hard cold fact that each and every day – you are essentially “going to war” against the worlds fastest computers, and some of the highest paid, and most intelligent people on earth.
Oh ya….and all you’ve got is a handful of your own money, a cheap laptop, and if you’re lucky – an internet connection that won’t crap out on you while you’re watching the market crash on CNN Español.
So…….when things go in your favor – and your hard efforts have been rewarded with your trades safely “deep in green” I guess its ok to just…..sit on your hands.
Markets look poised to move higher.
