Making it in this business is not easy, takes hard work, lot of research, homework, requires capital, requires that such capital is preserved throughout the learning stages, and then even when you find a good system to execute, requires tremendous will and discipline. Typically the above is not easy to accomplish while having a full time job, because getting it, is within itself, a full time job, so in the meantime, supporting yourself while learning requires even more capital.
With all the being said, is no surprise that most people are negative towards it, because most don't got what it takes to make it.
It's not just about will, it's about having the resources as well.
Most don't make it, that's not a myth, that's a fact.
While I agree with much of what you're saying, here are a couple of things surprise me about the unremittingly negative posters:
1. Those same things (difficulty of success-wise) apply to most professions, unless your goal is to sort of aimlessly work your way through life. It's hard to become a Regional Sales Manager without some level of dedication, but you don't see people dumping all over people trying to become Regional Sales Managers.
2. What do these negative posters do for a living that they have the spare time to come to a message board dedicated to a field they probably have not succeeded in and bash it? Are they bored CEOs raking in millions of bucks at the top of their game and social circle? If not, why aren't they taking the time they spend here and busting their humps at whatever it is they do? It would be like a baseball player who was trying to make it to the major leagues spending his time on a message board telling people how hard it is to get to the majors rather than working on his hitting and fielding.
Seriously, for the people who are so negative on trading, what is it that you do? Are you really so successful that you have time to waste bashing other for pursuing their goals? Or, like the traders you mock, are you losers, just in non-trading professions? I have to say it's the latter because I don't know of a single successful person who has the time to go around mocking others in a completely unrelated profession. It just simply doesn't happen because their time is so in demand by others that they can't waste it bashing other people's pursuits, so, by deduction, we can conclude that you are as big a bunch of losers as anyone you call losers. Unless some of you inherited money or won some in a lawsuit, which I suppose is always a possibility.
