Hi. I have been interested in trading for like 5 years now. I play poker for a living, and am starting to have some extra money and may try again. Past attempts have gone badly. I am starting to notice something somewhat disturbing though. I am somewhat connected in the poker community, enough to know that there are a lot of guys making a lot of money at poker, week after week and year after year. Trading doesn't seem to be the case. It seems to have a MUCH lower success rate. I have lurked these forums for about 5 years I think, and don't see too many of the same people around. I almost never see success stories, and everyone on here just seems to be trying to figure out something that works. This is in strong contrast to poker, where tons of people post graphs of their winnings every month. So my question is, where are the consistant winners? Is trading so hard that there are only a few, and most of them are the quiet type that don't post results, brag etc...? I know in poker most players are arrogant, like to brag, and are quick to post a good day/week/year's numbers. I doubt traders are too different. So come on, tell me a success story to encourage me to keep my interest in trading.
