I have been demo trading for nearly a year, and it has been an incredible learning curve…
What concerns me, however, is that my girlfriend finds it akin to gambling and she said
she never thought she would be with someone who has an interest in this…
I tried to explain that I will only go live if and when I see it fit, and that it is not an addiction…
I know that others among you have been in a similar situation… Has anyone given up their
trading ambition for similar reasons?
I am hoping that, if and when I will go live, the facts will speak for themselves and she may
be more comfortable with it…
I try to spend time doing this when she is not with me, not to hide it but so that it does not
feel like it is eating into our time together… However, now that it is the holidays I have been
more active in reasearch/development of my trading strategies while she has been out to
work, and I have been open to her about that… I try not to be selfish, but I feel that at this
point I really ought not to give up until I know more definitely whether I can go live, some
day, and make consistent profits.
My girlfriend is more important to me than trading, so obviously I would never like the latter
to get in the way. . .
Has anyone else been in this situation and how did you deal with it?
