When I am not trading then I am doing research on companies, working out scenarios and planning for the next's day trading session. I have been interested in the stockmarkets,finance since I was around 11-12 years old. It is no longer a money issue since I do not have to trade for a living anymore but it is an enjoyable thing to do and the research part as well. Pretty scary when you can quote last closing prices and tickers if someone asks you or provide market news and details. I read alot to keep abrest of what is going around in the world and how I can apply this knowledge to the markets. Anyhow so how many folks here hardcore into this ?
