  1. Anyone have any hard beginnings with trading and turned them into success stories and are trading full-time?

    I am not a total success yet, but I only know 1 trader who is a TRUE success story. He started out as a broker, worked for several firms, and gradually built up his client list. After about 7-8 years as a broker, he went independent and basically managed other people's money.

    He recently started a hedge fund, manages about $80,000,000 and he still does it all by himself. Unbelievable, right?

    It's true. And he's only in his early 30's.

    Is there some reason you can't or won't say who he is?

    Talk about hard beginnings... The very first trade for the Schindler Fund was going long the NQ's on Sept. 10th, 2001. :(
