Financially, I know I could quit my EE job. I'm at the point where the DAILY fluctuations in my trading account dwarfs a single bi-weekly paycheck.... up AND down of course. What's preventing me from giving my resignation is the fact I know quality jobs are hard to come by nowadays. I read it everywhere in the newspapers, magazines, see it on tv, hear from friends... about how people with college degrees are settling for something far less than they had hoped for. There are sad stories everywhere I turn. This is eating me up psychologically. It's not that I feel obligated to my job. I just feel very fortunate to have a decent job the past couple of years. I'm very lucky to have multiple streams of income. I'm 30, still single. How did some of you bring yourselves to put in your 2-week notice to concentrate more on trading? Am I just being a wuss?
