I see a lot of discussion this afternoon around 'How long will it take to become profitable' or 'How will I know when I 'get it'?" I'm not sure there is much value in that question though.. If the answer is reported as '5 years', are you going to train for 5 years and then quit if you're not profitable? Are you going to become profitable in 1 year and assume you've gotten there early so stop learning? Some people learn English faster than others, some learn Mathematics faster than others.. A syllabus for math might look like this: 1 - Arithmetic 2 - Algebra 3 - Calculus 4 - Differential Equations 5 - Eigen Values and Linear Algebra 6 - ? For the benefit of those asking the 'how long' questions, I wonder if we might get some people to chime in on -- What is the syllabus for learning to trade?
