I work from home as a Senior Business Analyst. Beauty of working from home is that I can trade all day and between conference calls. I get trade ideas from an investor service http://bit.ly/Yks96z. Personal Blog: http://bit.ly/WW4kPU
First year of trading end in 2012 -- probably will be flat. But learning. Mostly a chart guy. Can I make a living at this? Verdict still out. Now learning options, hopefully better for capital and profit protection. Plus, like the leverage it offers.
