    Just curious how many people here make at least $50,000 per year doing trading. And if so, how much your capital is.
  2. Wow your nosy.


    First post and your coming around asking this?

    a lot, but more dont
  4. NONE make a decent living. Without being wealthy first. Working with a prop shop or living below the poverty level or having other sources of income. That's a fact jack!!!
  5. In the Internet: everyone is a millionaire.

    On the real life: very few; BTW to make a measly $50k/per year, earning 20% (and most traders lose), you need at least $250k to speculate.

    Not many in ET.
  6. Why you got so offended?

    You can't pay your bills?
    Maybe don't even break-even?
  7. It depends on what you mean by the word "living".

    I am still net negative which means I give Barry and his Gubmint more than they give me.

    And that my friends puts me in more of a minority than the countless who claim minority simply by their color of their skin.
  8. Don't forget to dismiss 90% of those claiming to make a lot, who confuse paper/sim trading with REAL trading.

    According to postings, the number would be 99.835%--Ishmael:)
  10. I live in a Section 8 housing and trade with free money thanks to Obama. You guys are the suckers.

    I get paid to watch Jerry Springer, My housing is free and I get free gambling money thanks to Obama.
