Re: Is anyone making a good living??? My personal definition of a decent living is a six-figure annual income in any western country (US$, Euros, British pounds, Canadian or Australian dollars, etc), for someone who enjoys trading for a living. Whether it is a high six-figures or a low six-figures determines whether it is a decent, good or excellent living. Alternative definition: The opportunity cost of your earning power at a regular job, plus the annual return available to you on the amount of capital you have. Example1: Your salary at day job is $75K and you have $25K available for trading. That year's S&P500 return is 8%. Therefore you are earning a good living day-trading if you earn anything over $77K, or 308% annual return. Example2: Your salary is $500K and your have $2M to invest. Professional managers could produce 15% annual return net of fees. You are earning a good living day-trading if you make anything over $800K, or 40% annual return. Comments or opinions? What's your annual goal?
