I've been playing in and out of the market over 5 years now. I have learned the hard way to make money. One thing I have learned is to be patient! Which is hard to do when you want to just be a day trader. Best advice would be not to trade on emotion
20 years in the Investment Management Industry. Was an Investment Product Developer for Standard Life Canada for 10 years until June/15, when Manulife bought us and cut everybody! Trading more actively while casually looking for work.
I consider myself an amateur now based on some personal objectives. I've learned a great deal, but need to refine my execution. I give much credit to www.daytradingradio.com ! What a very awesome forum!!
