I'm a medical student in Europe and have traded part time for a few years. I'll be finished with school this year and can't decide if I should go for clinical medicine (with absolutely no chance of trading part time for at least 5 years) or if I should go full-time trading. This is a very difficult decision for me. Did any of you give up a career (medicine or other) for trading? Did you regret doing so? I am only semi-successful with trading (but I do make a profit), if I had to do it full-time with the pressure to make a living, it would be a different situation and I don't know if I could cope/or at least, if that would negatively affect my trading.On the other hand, if I commit all my time to trading, I might be more successful. I love the freedom of the trader, and I hate the lack of freedom in working in a hospital (I actually think that only other doctors can truely understand what I mean, it really is bad). I don't know if you can help, I hope some of you went through the same decision process as I am in now, and it would be great to know if you have been successful or not. A role model would be worth a lot. Thanks for your time!
