I'm pretty new to the forums and I like to lurk, but I'm still a total newb either way.. I have been trading pretty actively (Day trades from time to time but mainly swing trades) for about 1.5 years. I am currently in college and I am a year out from graduation and when I graduate I would prefer to begin trading full time. How much money do you feel I need to graduate with in my account? I currently make enough trading to support myself, but luckily I work to pay my bills so my winnings get put back into the market...But I am sure things will change as I graduate college and I wont want to live like a total scumbag. Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to hear how much $$ you think someone should start out with to go through the good and bad times trading for their first year full time.
