Been trading for abour 4 years now part time . I dont have a big trading ac to make trading fulltime. But i think the only people that can survive off of trading fulltime and make a good living are people that are trading other people money . Its easy to make 5 or 10 % a month. So if you can get say about 200k in investments and make 10% a month that 20 k and i think the average fee is 25% of the profit that would give 5k profit . Not trading your own money is probably less stressfull . I guess one has to build up a couple years of a track record .
