    As the summer draws in, the market is getting less active with more quiet time. I wonder if it is possible to have a 2nd job. Ideally it will be a job wherein I can also work from home while watching the computer at the same time.

    Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.
  2. Tele-marketing to the new Chinese yuppies?:D
  3. I wake up around noon, start trading from 12:30 to 2:00 in my undies. Head to the local university to take an hour class. Look over ET and other boards. Head to my 2nd job to do some consultation work with a RE developer followed by a few afterhours trades from the office then back home. Most Saturday and Sundays I spend in New York or some other bullshit Floridian town which is the case today.

    I'm a young, eccentric guy in case you can't tell by my previous posts. :D
  4. Just publish your email adress on 3 or 4 publicly accessible online forums, and I'm sure you'll get plenty of business proposals via email.

    Or try this one alternatively:

    You can always think of writing a book but I heard some place that book writing endevour can result in returns at the rate of $6-10 an hour after every thing is said and done meaning you found a publisher to put it all in print.

  8. hmm. I've never actually traded ForEx. It's something I should look into though.

    does anyone here trade at a prop firm, then go home and trade forex on their own account?

    I've thought about doing this....maybe opening up a small forex account for 1 grand and learning to swing trade because I won't be able to swing trade at the prop firm....and most the stocks i'll be trading probably won't move that much like LU or CPN.
