I've read many articles about the hottest trader at the time in many different magazines and such and alot of them talk about how there job is 24/7 and how there constantly working. recently I've read comments that alot of traders and mangers really lie (or over exaggerate) how much they really work. i can say I have had some success in trading and while I do work hard I can't say that I could even find enough things to work on that would require 24/7 style labor. maybe its a fundamentalist/technical thing but I must say I have read many tech traders that say they work the high powered schedule also. just wanted to get the thoughts of some people that may know. that said I'm not managing billions of dollars so maybe thats the difference.
