  1. Pretty simple.
  2. Yep (it's a job to me) and others doing the same...

    I wish you continue success in 2008.

    I'm expecting a very volatile trading year and if such doesn't occur...

    No biggie.

    Happy New Year 2008.

    By the way, there are many other threads with similar like or a slightly different angle to the same curiousity about trading for a living along with a few of them having a poll.

  3. Altought trading is the source of half my income, I'm not trading full time.

    Profits from stock trading come to me in seasons, not all the months.

    I'm a seasonal swing trader, so I could NOT (and even if I could, I would not like) to be glued to a computer.

    I lost money trading and got a day job.

    Since then I have lost more money trading but am not worried about buying food or paying for gas anymore.
  7. i am surprised it is this high. from the way most people post here on ET i would be surprised if 20% make money. maybe it's just the loud mouth idiots who think they have a clue that are getting my attention more. :p
