Traders make lots of money, thats no secret. Even someone making 500.00 a day (130k a year) is comfortable, however I don't ever see any mention of fine luxury items here on ET. I'm not saying I wish people would brag more, but in the three years I've been an ET member, I dont see any threads from people posting such things as: "Hey whats a better watch?...a Naloni Canova, or Rolex?"...... "I want to buy a condo in Atlanta or NY, in the 5 million dollar range, where can I get the best value for my money?...... " Who here drives a Ferrari or Aston Martin? I want to get one of these for my wife, but cant decide which one she'd like more" and so on... Are traders by nature just really private people? or perhaps people on ET (myself included) dont make sh-t, and therefore have no need in asking such questions? hmm. Well I was just wondering about it. I read trader monthly a lot, and the trader PnL journal here, but wonder....some seem to make good coin, but it never really comes to light socially here on ET. It's not any of my business, I agree, but rather something I noticed. I'd buy myself a much needed new car, but I didnt quite make 35k this year...had i reached a 1,400% this year, I'd ask ET "Whats a better buy...a Honda v6 accord, or Nissan maxima?"
