I have been trading for 2 years now and am still just breaking even - make some money some days and lose them in the next few days. The problem I am having is I think experimenting with too many different trading styles while looking for which style will make me profitable - trading listed or Nasdaq, scalping or doing intraday swings, trading high volatility stocks or large volume "boring" stocks like MSFT, etc. My question to the full time traders on this board is this - how long did it take you find your trading style? How much money did you lose before you found your niche? I trade from home using IB and have considered going the prop route with the hope of learning from a trading environment but at this point it might be foolish for me to go that way if I don't have a defined, profitable trading style yet. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
