    The rule states the average person needs 10k hours to become an expert. It roughly works out 5 years full time study.

    I started researching trading in 2007 and now have 5 years experience in trading. Heres how it breaks down

    9000 hours, reading trading forums/articles etc
    500 hours, reading trading books
    490 hours, looking at charts
    10 hours, trading.

    I guess I need to change my focus. :D
  2. a few hundred hours reading and navel gazing.
    approx. 500 hours demo trading and honing your edge.

    dress in full battle gear for the balance.

    this is a game of inches.
