I have been a professional trader since 1994 when I gave up the practice of law to devote myself to trading full time. That twenty years and thousands of dollars in tution down the tubes, but that's OK, because trading for a living is about the best vocation you can have. You make money based on your own wits, not toiling for a paycheck from someone else. Even when I practiced law in Atlanta, Georgia I had my own shingle. In fact, the last paycheck I ever received was from delivering pizza's in a high school and even then, most of my earnings came from tips. But there are no hot tips in successful trading, only the creativity and discipline to be a successful stock trader. Be independent, be successful and learn from someone who has made his own way. Your life will never be the same. Hard sell over.
