You hear about "that guy day trades for a living" or "yeah, that guy's a day trader" and it's their only job. Are other types of trading profitable enough to *live* off of? I've heard that total profits are potentially higher with swing trading than day trading, and then I've heard the opposite. So could you swing trade and live off of it assuming a realistic starting capital? I don't mean some guy with $1M making $10k a month swing trading. I mean some guy with $50-100k making $5-10k a month. Is it realistically doable? Could you have $100k (with margin) and make 10% per month or something? Or is that even more of a pipedream than daytrading succesfully?
