a very good forum title. i always wonder the same question. now that i know there are actually full time forex trader it give me more confident and courage to continue and hopefully become one of them not too far in the future. have been trading since 2009. lost more than 4000 USD but it doesnt stop me. it make me a wiser, better trader.
To go full time, i need to make consistent 4000 USD profit per month which is twice my salary. for me this figure will cover my fear and give me confident to quit my job.
with an initial start up capital of 3000 USD, 7.5% profit every month compounding consistently, i can achieve my target in 5 years.
5 years and achieve freedom from 9-5 job, for me it seem a pretty good deal.
the problem is how to make 7.5% profit every month consistently. (this is were the skill come in, and i still trying to acquire that skill).

Anything is Possible!

The hardest thing I think could be able to wait patiently for that couple of years to became a pro. trader.
I lost a little more than you during my nearly 2 years long live trading experience, I started to beame a little more patient but it is very hard when you see the price moving, the huge profit potencials in the market day by day. How to cool myself not to trade always when I want to quit my 9-5 job as quickly as possible? That is my main question. :)

Don't PANIC!

That sounds like a realistic and achievable plan. All you need now is a strategy that works and (more importantly) to stick to it. Do you keep a trading diary? I've found it very helpful to put my strategy down on paper and pin it up along with my trading goals by the computer screen. I was supplementing my income from running my own biz with profits from trading - I now I supplement my income from trading with the occasional odd job.

Know what to expect from your strategy and stick with it.

Trading for a living, exclusively, would rock, I work nights and like what Im doing, and will till I can't. My goal is to not trade so much, I have a better % return, and leave the demo on for practice skills. The last 2 weeks or so, on demo, I messed around with other combo's of trade methods and learned to stay with what works, don't guess, and keep doing it. 2013 Goal=make a 3-5% avg per month consistently! Best in 2013 fellow trader

I'd like to state here:
you trade a 9 to 5 job to do manual trading.
Indeed a fortune can be made,
but what is the amount of time you're going to sit behind a pc to follow the market?
Also depends on what markets you wish to trade what hours you'll be making.

You'll give up 9 to 5, but you'll still need to do time. and maybe even worse hours then 9 to 5?
Or am I wrong here?
10 minutes each day and the daily fortune is traded and gained?

Go fulltime trading for the right reasons, you're your own boss, independant and when you screw up, it's you're own fault and fortune that goes to waste. Life of a trader isn't stress free, but you won't get stuck in traffic.

I am the change in the market that causes you to lose :p / Watch out before I negative pip you! ^^

Zlion, cant agree more with you. patience is the key word but very hard to cultivate. however if we are too eager and too rush to quit our job....i found it will have a negative effect on our trading. (increase in wrong decision).

Steven Jennel, i try the trading journal....but after a few trade.....i just cant keep up with it. LAZY.......;P

good planning C (CESTRADES). 3-5% avg per month consistently. I think thats a very realistic and achievable goal. i trust tat you can do it cos u seem very patience with your trading.

Financialarts
i usually trade H1 n H4, examine the chart for 15 to 30 min, find a good opportunity to enter. if non will skip it. usually will start obeserving at GMT 6, 7, 8, 9 then 11,12,13,14. Europe session and US session (opening)
once enter will leave it and check back every hour candle formation to make sure i'm on the right track. 4 hour candle and daily candle is a must check candle.
i'm not a scalper. sometimes my trade can go to a few days. so i dont think i'll be more busy after quiting my job.
ya, we r our own boss, and if we screw up, definately we r the one to blame. that's why i need to accumulate my 3000 USD to at least 55,000 so that when multiply with 7.5% i will have 4000++ USD monthly. which is more than enough to cover all my expenses and give me a stress free zone to enjoy life.
after all FINANCIAL FREEDOM is all we r looking for right.

Thanks andrewchak, a problem of mine that I need to stop right away is trying to many different approaches. As you can see on my page, the graph, which is very helpful, shows the classic stairway bi-polar effect cause I tried several other different systems and it didn't work for me. I was thinking that there may be a better system, but you get to a point where the only thing you can improve on, is you. So i'm just going to execute the system, as is, and rock and roll!

I would like traders to admit how many switched to trading full time and then lost an account and had to find a job again ?

also what is your's secret - how do you overcome bad trades ?

a) do you count on having a good accuracy, eg: r/r 1:1 50+% of good trades
b) do you double (or increase) the lots sometimes ?
c) do you increase the TP to regain some of the lost trades $$$ ?
