Hi, I'm trading stocks seriously for about 6 months now. My track-record is 36% in 142 days, which is ~118% annualised. The year before I hold only Nokia, which was the best title in the SX5E during that period. I) How many years do I need to add to my experience to become a professional trader in a company? II) Is it better to trade your own money or for a company or both? At the moment I'm concentrating on building a bigger trading stake. It will probably take me another 2-3 years so that I can easily live from my profits. I'm thinking about taking some seminars or coaching, but am not sure about it because of the costs. I would like to study / work with the best of the best. III) How do I do it? Thanks for any advice.
