Hello Chris, welcome from an ex Floridian. I wonder, do you like working with and helping people? If so, trading is the absolute worst career choice for you. But I think you can still learn to trade and work full time. Oh by the way, you know 60 is the new mid life. Also, I thought I had a mid life crisis once, but Mrs Viper told me “No you are just a Dill Weed” and just like that it went away.
Being hungry to be rich is the absolute worst reason to trade, in fact in speaking one time to the Late Great Don Bright, he related to me that one of his best traders could barely carry a conversation, and traded because that’s about all he could do to make a decent living. So it really isn’t about being rich, most of the folks who I have run across that trade to be rich, end up badly. You know what, strike that, “all of the folks” instead of most.
To be successful at this you have to love it, I started papertrading when I was like 10 years old, circling different stocks in the newspaper etc and following them. Did the same in highschool, so for me, its been like forever. You have had something that many of us did not achieve till we were older, success, yup, and its good you are grateful, however how will you react, maybe five years from now, and you find yourself not able to get in synch with the market, and trade after trade goes negative, what will you do.
So, here is what I recommend, go through the BP school, its not med school or undergrad, but when you are done, you will understand a yuuuuuuuge amount about SpotCurrency trading. Read Alexander Elders Book trading for a living, also Perry Kaufman’s work on technical indicators. Read my VIPER COUCH area, if you want to check out what Brain Bugagboos and Mommie and Daddy issues can do to a traders brain.
When your done with this stuff, then it will be time to open an account, select a platform, broker, and git some sim trading done.
