Hi everyone,so the age old question: How long does it take on average for an individual to become a consistently profitable trader? I decided to create this thread as a study I am conducting in the ET community with the goal of gaining the following information:1.How many profitable traders there are on here2. more importantly how long it took them to become profitable 3. How many hours a week did they spend on trading/backtesting In the interests of the entire community, we would appreciate honest answers and input (although I am sure there will be some dishonesty) So here are the questions I would like profitable traders to answer:Have you been consistently profitable over the past year? 1.How many years/months did it take you to become a profitable trader? 2.During the first six months of your trading career, How many hours a week did you devote to your new business? Thank You.
