You can make a fortune in options as many have but, you can also lose while trying. Play the game, their game and be a strong winner!

I day trade for a living. My office is a few blocks from BATS trading. I like 1 or 2 day trades on set ups that are pretty clear. When the short term chart stops working I take profits. I love the stock market and I look forward to it daily.
