    As for excuses go, would you believe me if I said I have more money in my bank account than my parents? I support them with $$ every month, pay for the family's phone bill, have college loans asking for monthly payments, donate 10% of my income to church, and for some righteous reason decided to sponsor a child through Compassion. At the same time I have to be social which costs extra $$. At home I really live like a peasant and $1000 a month saving is only possible if I basically kill off my social life. It's usually $500-$700 savings a month. Good thing I'm not into the latest tech/fashion because that would be extra $$. Oh, and quarterly car insurance payments suck.

    I trade at work..secretly. I think my boss and higher-up coworkers know I trade during work times (firm people know I'm really into stock tradings too) but they are quiet about it. I think it's because I get my work done and my work quality is good enough for the firm's standards. Or they don't know I trade hahaha but I'm sure compliance knows. My broker statements get sent to them monthly.

  4. I agree, that's what I was kind of thinking. -- To these conservative traders or may seem like a risky proposition (and it probably is) ...but all the greats in life...scrapped by in the beginning and took get where they are today. o_O:wtf:


    You now have your seed money. -- Go out there, and prove it to yourself you can grow it. (you said you're good)
    You might go bust, or you might blow/grow it up -- but the important thing tried it. You don't wanna look back in life at the missed opportunities you wished you tried.

    Dude, this is all just mental masturbation. Ithinkicanithinkicanithinkican etc

    Do it or don't do it. It's the wrong decision. Try it and if you're down, CUT YOUR LOSSES SHORT.
