I am curious to know how professional traders manage their brokerage accounts vs living expense account.. How often due you withdrawal funds from trading account to pay for living expenses or do you keep accounts completely seperate??.. In my planning for fulltime trading I would have about a 78k stake... I am either thinking of leaving all 78k in my trading account and then withdrawing bi weekly as I need cash. or I was going to take like 20k put in checking account and 58k in trading account.... If I run out the 20k to pay for living expenses then I would reevaluate my trading and maybe get a real job again.
