  1. Thought it would be interesting to see how ET people would rate themselves as traders.

    Please try to answer honestly!!!
     
  2. unfortunately, I left out "Have been trading for awhile, and am losing small amounts or near breakeven.

    If this applies to you instead, you can just note it below or PM me to keep it private, and I will put a count, below.

    Had only 10 choices, and cannot modify poll, apparently
     
  3. Here's my status:
    PART Time Trader, Making Money Regularly for under 3 years

    Great idea, lets you get a good idea of who people are, and where they're coming from when they post.

    Good trading,

  4. I'm sure some delusional sim traders making lots of monopoly money will participate in the poll.

    You should have made some separate options for them :D
     
  5. You forgot - "lost my ass repeatedly, but claim to be making money in polls like this to maintain an illusion of dignity"
    :D
     
  6. "I can now buy Park Place and 3 Railroads... Houses and Hotels soon to follow" :cool:
     
  7. 65 votes so far...
     
  8. Part time trader, been consistantly profitable for 3+ Years (actually about 6 years now).
