Who on here has taken the big leap from working for someone else to trading at home?
Any experience tales would be really helpful.
I'm aware of the risks etc etc and the steep learning curve and time required but just would like to see what others strategy for doing this has been, ie do you make a set amount each month and put it away for the mortgage and then trade more agressively with the rest or only work from a small pot, how long has it taken before realising a good profit? At what point do you know your money is available to spend rather than keep in the trading account for the likely losses to come?
Apart from the financials how has the motivation gone? ie dealing with the kids/wife at home whilst trying to look at charts or renting an office out of the house.
