  1. Hey Guys...

    I was just wondering, what percent of traders/you guys are full time traders, as in- it is your full time job VS you work as something else, like an accountant, engineer etc...and work on trading on the side?
  2. Cmon fellas...point me in the right direction.
  3. Everyone here is a full time trader, all have years and years of experience, and all are profitable:)
  4. Lol ha ha ha Cmon man!
  5. Then you might want to differentiate between full time traders living at home with their mommies.
    And single guys renting a small bachelor pad..
    And main bread winners with wife and children, large mortgage and 2 cars etc
    I fall under the latter :(
  6. I trade full time but I also have a couple of other business's but I do spend all day trading. I live off money from the business's Any trading profits are just icing on the cake.
  7. That is exactly what I am trying to figure out. What % are doing it as a hobby while working 40 hour work week and who is doing it 24/7...
  8. less than 2% trade full time
  9. itsame


    work full-time

    trade on the side
  10. Southbeach: Exactly what I thought. Do you know where I can get that data?
