Some Questions: 1) For you guys who are successful retail traders trading on something like IB or TradeStation, what's the average profit per trade that your trades get? I'm more interested in stock traders, but I wouldn't mind hearing from guys who trade futures either. 2) How long does your typical strategy last before it bites the dust? 3) How expensive are the stocks you trade? $10 stocks, $50 stocks? GOOG? I'm strictly interested in the profit per trade of the guy who is successfully trading out of his home, self-employed, and not managing anyone else's money. How many of you guys are out there? Are you a dying breed?
