Every trader, at one point or another, especially after long streak of wins , considers possibility of living of trading. I noticed few fellows here on CD who mentioned this and I consider this move myself too. There are few ways to approach subject; one can simply jump into the water with conviction that he somehow learn to swim in process just because it becomes matter of life an death, others rather stay on the beach lay down on sand and dry practice swimming movements, practice, practice and practice… I find myself in position of thinking of consequences that arise from fact of entering water at all. It seems that one of challenges I have to face is my mood swings – I know how loosing trade makes me feel leery and I know euphoria like state I'm in when my trade makes money - I think I can deal with it. No doubt each situation is unique and there is no one and only path leading to “professionalism” nevertheless I would like to hear your thoughts. I'm interested in every aspect of it, as in general ideas as in particular, specific problems – there is now way I was able to get to every aspect of this at my own. If this idea just passed your mind or if you are already swimming for a while, please, share if you will.
