I started full time at home position and swing trading stock three and half years ago. Prior I was a part time stock investor with my spare money from my regular job for a few years. I lose a ton due to market crash. I then learned option by myself, and have traded option for about 15 months. I made a lot of mistakes over the course, and have been drown down a lot last year; but gradually made up. Over these years, I am still a big loser. I have a small family to support. My capital has significantly decreased after four years of living expenses and trading loss. I am not a day trader or a risk taker. Although I am very confident in trading options now, I don't think I will make it for living in the long run with my current capital. I am in my early 50. I had a Master degree in a science area, but retry in that area of job is absolutely impossible for me. I am thinking to find a trading job in a prop firm or investment firm. I am a hard worker, and I can put down some capital- say 30K to start with. In my current circumstances, I can not afford to make any mistakes or waste time. I sincerely ask your advises and helps.
