  2. Pop your trading cherry early. -- Regardless of everything, it's a long road of self-discovery...so the earlier you start, the more generally you'll be off o_O;)

    When I was 16, I was playing Sega Genesis and computer games all day long.
    If I were trading in the 90's...I'd be so much better off now. -- I probably would have been Dan Zanger 2.

    I learned about this trading world kind of late in life...during the 2008/2009 market crisis;
    ...it was kind of hard to Not hear about it everyday and try to ignore it -- massive headlines were the norm about the market back then daily.

    If you really fell the need to grow up fast...
    Get a fake ID and start partying down at the local college.
    Be the first in your class to bag a milf.

    Social skills will make you much more money than technical skills if you're a born overachiever.

    I didn't know what that was when I was 16 (and still don't now).

    I was reading Joe Ross's trading textbooks ... and don't understand why people are telling him not to be learning how to trade at 16. Glad nobody told me that, anyway. [​IMG]

  7. People are projecting from their experience. When they were 16 years old, they were apparently expected (by their peers) to get a fake ID, get drunk, and impregnate milfs. If you succeeded, you must have mastered the social skills required to be an "achiever" in your adult life. No programming skills or the knowledge of the probability theory are necessary.

    With all due respect, since I do respect you-- My bet is that you are heavily weighed down with bad habits and other nasties after brainwashing yourself with that nonsense as a child. You don't need to reply, or admit, only you need to know the TRUTH.

    No....Not at all.
    WE were the ones telling the peers what to do.
    There was money in it for us.
    Once again... understanding the human condition will always make one money.
    Ya gotta be smarter than the average bear in this world.
    If not, ....get used to being a worker bee.
    ....And never realizing what you truly aspire to.
