It seems like most of the people on this site are aiming to be the next great Market Wizard. Does everyone trade so they can become huge and manage billions? I obviously want to make a lot more money but as a small trader, should I be trying to emulate Soros, Paul Tudor Jones, and Warren Buffett would do? If you've got a 25k account, you aren't shooting to make 30% a year, you want to be making 200+%, right? I know its important to study these people because they are innovators. Do you trade so that you can make enough money to live a certain lifestyle or who trades to be the next major player? If the majority see themselves as the former then I am announcing a side venture. I'll be selling green braclets for traders with "WWPTJD?" as in 'What Would Paul Tudor Jones Do?'
