Do you think you'd still be trading even when you're 70? 👵

I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing if you can still see yourself trading at 70. :sweat_smile: Either you really love trading and are still doing it, or have still not made enough $$ that you still need to trade.

I would love to still be trading at 70. Hopefully not really for income generation but just to have something to do.

I definitely think I would be if I am still around… Even just for the mental/psychological aspect… try and keep the brain active!

I don’t have that long to go - six years? So I think the answer is YES. Trading is in my blood. I have traded (goods) since I were in primary school) and goods and services via a conventional trading company for the past 30 years. I have even sold stuff on eBay just for the experience. Just love trading, and I don’t think you can easily stop doing it if you have done it most of your life. Just Forex trading is a particular challenge that I am now on my third try at making a success of. Never say never, and never give up.

I am presently 70…started learning Forex after I retired. I absolutely love it and will continue until…well I can’t any longer. As a matter of fact I’ve got both of my sons into trading Forex.

Unless there was a good reason to stop (edge gone/no longer able to react to or read the market etc) I don’t see a reason I would put a time limit on it

If anything I’m looking forward to retiring from my day job so I can experience the full breadth of markets available to the “naive” trader (industry restrictions)

Sure hope so… I’ve got seven years to go. Still working a full-time job (and feel very blessed for that in these crazy times), and only trading around that. But I enjoy trading, and it could supplement our retirement income.

Well I’m just starting at 57. My health doesn’t permit me to work as I once did so I need to come up with another source of income. So I easily see myself trading at 70. When I first started to learn about day trading a year or two ago it seemed like something a person would want to continue doing regardless of age. It’s a skill set like any other. Once developed there is no reason not to use it. I will still be trading at 70, providing I live that long. Just my two cents.
