  1. Just wondering who here makes their living from the markets?

    Please be honest.
  2. I trade 17-20 days of the month full time, glued to screen all day, I piss in a bottle next to me, I time my shits outside market hours, I orderfood and SPRINT to the door to get it. Even when I go on tilt I do not take breaks... not until the software stops me out (luckily doesn't happen too often).

    First year (last 07) in the biz I made 4 figs, paid high 5 figs in comms... this year I also paid high 5 figs in comms but have taken home 6...

    If this gig doesn't keep working out, I'd have to use the money I've saved to pay for college and go back to the real world... meh fuck that!
  3. id rather have complete understanding of one good setup that consistently works... instead of trying to do everything. works for me anyway, jason/c-kid/cold.
