Let me preface this by saying I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask these questions, if its not I apologize. I'm not a trader, but lately i've started thinking about getting involved. unfortunately i'm also a little overwhelmed by the amount of content floating on the internet, along with the plethora of "Must read" books. I'm currently a software engineer making a living, but i'm looking for a career thats a little more exciting and high risk (young, no family, extra money, why not?). I'm not looking to make a quick buck, and I am willing to invest time into learning, studying, and hopefully i'll eventually be able to make money. Are there people here who make good money? How do I get involved? Any advice to get me started in the right direction would help, and any opinions, recommendations, book suggestions, anything, would be greatly appreciated.
