I would have to disagree with you based on the fact that mass amounts of Account managers fail because they actually think that they are ready to manage OP$.
This website was not designed to find investors. It was designed by traders-for traders to improve their skills based on statistical evaluation. Most contributors to this site are honest traders and investors that want more out of the statistics.
Good traders want to display transparency while investors want the same. As this site continues to improve and as scammers are pushed out, in the end, investors can finally make educational decisions with their money based on the statistics found on these trading systems.
Now from being a member for several months, I've seen many MoneyManagers Come and Go, quite quickly honestly, and they are all the same.
-They think that they are a good trader-some are, some are not.
-They have a proven system
-They do quite well with their own money
However, they want more (greed), they know, if that can gain this much with $1k in their account, just imagine what they can earn with $100k and the only way they can ever reach that sum of money is from investors. So they became a MM.
Now what often happens is that they want to earn a nice living their first month. They have little to lose and lots to gain. In the end, they can not contain their emotions and they become a rouge trader.
So my advice, is that you need to cut your living expenses to a bare minimum, lose the idea of making a lot of $$$ and start saving until you have enough $ to trade the LOT size that you need in order to meet that monthly goal to live from your own trading. Once you can do this, You will focus on what you '' NEED' to make to survive and not what you 'WANT'.
Once you figure this out, than maybe you will have a chance at becoming a MM.
