Iâm a 7-year trader, basically treading water the past 3-4 years, hereâs why: got two young kids (and an evening job). My wife works 9-5 while I watch the kids. Naturally Iâm responsible for the little ones (ages 4 and 1) as the exchanges are trading. Being a good dad and a good trader is basically hopeless or so it seems. I find myself being impatient, forcing trades and lacking a general point of focus as I tend to the kids. My goal is to eventually become a full time trader and ditch the decent paying evening work. Life is short. I have the confidence but no time to hone my skills. This is my first post. Iâm not looking for advice per se because being dad to handcuffs and shackles will always come first but Iâm interested to know if anyone on ET has gone through this and how they may have managed. Or are you all just single, care free and without kids?
