Before I ask for assistance on this long drawn out complicated matter I just want to say everyone on this site is excellent and provides great advice??? Ok here is my situation.. I am 31 and currently I swing trade but I have always dreamed of becoming a fulltime trader..With this dream in mind I have worked hard several years in my day job to save a decent size account (about 100k). I have always been terrified to leave my 80k yr salary at a fortune 500 company because of all horror stories I have heard about daytraders....Well last Friday as I was walking out the door I overheard my supervisor say that I was a horrible employee and some other things but I did not catch the rest of it...She did not know I that overheard her. I just continued walking out the door...I could not beleive it. I have been with the same company 5 yrs and worked my ass of everyday of those 5 yrs....I just sat in my car and my stomach sank...I was exausted after a long week and I wanted to go in and confront her but I was late to my brother's graduation. As I was driving away my mind was racing...I could not imagine coming back to place that does not want me..They all smile in my face but deep down I know they want me out.. I feel maybe this is the opportunity to take the leap and start trading fulltime. Here is the problem....I have a serious girlfriend...I also am looking at building a new home in my dream neighborhood...I am currently renting but I would like to eventually get married start a family and buy a lot in this area...I am so sick of my apartment, my neighbors and my landlord. These are all dreams of mine and they are costly....But I hate to say this but my biggest dream is trading fulltime...I dread the thought of sabotaging even a PENNY of trading account to have these other things...Sometime I think maybe I mentally deranged or a degenerate gambler to have these thoughts but I cant help it..These are my thoughts.. Here is my question to You....I am at a well paying job with benefits in a company that does not want me...I have not been fired yet.....My savings is to embark on a trading career if I do get the boot...Should I risk a large protion of this capital for a new home purchase??? What would you do?
