Full-Time Trading
Traders are sometimes driven to full-time status because they are tired of having a boss.  And while you won’t have a boss, you will often work harder than when you did have a boss, so it’s important to consider that before quitting your 9 to 5. You will spend a lot of time looking at charts, and honestly need to devote a considerable amount of time to education in general.     

Don’t Trade Simply Because You Have An Account
When Rick decided to get serious about trading, there were a few things that he recognized. For starters, it wasn’t going to be easy, or fast. He learned to build a watch list and then let the trades come to him. You can’t trade, just for the sake of trading…or because you have six monitors!   It’s important to find a system that works for you. 

Magic Indicators
Guess what? They don’t exist!  The “magic” happens when you learn how to use your indicators to make a profit.  You need to look at price action, or find a specific strategy that will work for you.  Ultimately, the “Holy Grail” in trading isn’t an indicator, it’s YOU!
