I would say this to anyone considering quitting school/college for full-time trading.
Going to school is about so much more than getting an edication! I am 49 years old and my school and uni days hold some of my best memories. Looking back I would not swap a single year of that for a life in trading even if I could have made £100K per year doing it! Trading is a solitary, purely money-driven activity. School is all about education, meeting people, challenging authority/ learnimg how to conform, meeting first boy/girl-friend. There is nothing in trading to compare to this that can’t be put off by a few years.
Also, I have never been a full-time trader - I’ve always had a day job and still manage to turn a decent profit. I hate to think what kind of physical and emotional state I’d be in if I traded full time. Prob 100lb overweight, heavy drinker and unable to hold a normal conversation with anyone! I’m half-way there already!!
