Hello BBT Community,
I'm really excited to be joining this community. You folks seem to be down to earth and treat career day trading with the respect it deserves. I want to learn your ways! I want to commit all the time I can to go from beginner to intermediate and hopefully continue forward from there.
A little about me: I'm a 32 year old US resident and leaving my 9-5 soon (I work as a Systems Analyst in the IT field. Though the pay is good and is a good career for a lot of people, it doesn't excite me and probably never will) I have enough money saved to be non-profitable for a year to a year+ (if that's how long it takes). I'm going to try a career change. I'm taking the leap with the support of my loving wife. Day trading is something I've always been interested (not as a get rich quick scheme, but as a career) but was never able to find the time and resources to give myself a fair chance at making it work (I respect the dedication, practice, and risk management it takes). Now that the stars have aligned and I have an opportunity to join this community, do 3 months of SIM (more if necessary), use DAS pro with CMEG and go live with small amounts to start, I can make a go of it.
I hope I can get some mentorship going because having read Andrews How to Day Trade For A Living and a few more, I'm still fully aware of my ignorance. At least the ground work has been lain and I know what I'm getting into (sort of). I'm going to set up my DAS SIM asap and devote as much time to it as possible as I exit my job in the next month or two.
I'm going to start going through the community now and getting to know you fine people.
Looking forward to getting involved,
