As a independent trader I haven't quite reached 100K a year. But I am making a comfortable Living full time for over 3 years now strictly on my own from my computer at home. And would not trade this for anything. Not even a job trading at Goldman Sachs for 500K or even 1 million a year. I just love the freedom too much And I hate Authority. Also its neat to get up in the morning and trade in your underwear if you want How about the rest of you ?? What would you prefer ??
