    Daniel being a Gipsy, there is nothing impressive at all
    Most every Gipsy can save enough of these 500$ to drive in Mercedes 600 SLK.

    How about this; does this count?

    What if you trade fulltime but at your day job? That's what I do. I'm an IT professional, but my job is a joke and I do about 2 hours of work a week, all of which I make sure is done either before 9:30am or after 4:00pm. :D

    I don't think there's a better deal in the whole world. I not only get an office, a killer machine, and a blazing T3 connection for free, but I get paid for it! Unbelievable!

    And yes, I'm a serious trader making real money. This isn't a game like some people play from their office jobs, putting on a trade here or there during their lunch break, only to get interrupted in the middle of it by someone asking them to do some work. My trading accounts for roughly 85% of my total income.

  9. I sure hope you aren't IT working for our beloved defense department. It would explain why I can't access porno sites!

  10. I think you should have added to the poll:

    "I would love to trade for a living, but can't yet" (for whatever reason - insufficient capital, insufficient knowledge, scared to give up the day job just yet, etc, etc, etc).

    This would probably get the highest percentage.

    BTW Scalpa, what kind of "IT professional" are you? I really want your job. The only thing that worries me is that 85% of your income comes from trading. Either your tech job doesn't pay that great or you are raking in the dough.

    Hope it's the latter (and not just because I want your job). :)
