Just joined this forum and look forward to future input.
It seems to me that the traders talk about making real money by trading derivative type products rather than the actual stock. My previous attempts at trading warrants has had mixed results due to an inability to trade during the day while working a full time job - I found it very difficult to time entry and exit.
As a result I have limited my trading to shares - movements are generally more orderly and I can buy sell after hours. Results however are not spectacular - I certainly am not loooking to give up my day job and live of trading profits. I hope to learn a better trading strategy while participating in this forum.
My question then - are any of the traders in this forum making real money by trading the mother stock or should I seriously educate myself on using warrants or options?
Secondly, what are your preferences over warrants or options as a derivative product?
