How Does It Feel to Be a Professional Full Time Trader?

Some people start learning and trading while they already have a job and income. They want to generate an extra income to have a better living. Some others have no job and income, and want to make money through trading as a full time job.

The first group, will finally become a full time trader, if they succeed to make money through trading and become a profitable trader, because they will see that they can easily make more money through trading compared to the job they have. The second group will also become a full time professional trader if they finally achieve to become a profitable trader.

You have heard that 95% of the traders lose, and many of them finally give up and will never become a profitable trader. This is true, but it is not a shocking fact, because it is the same with all the other businesses. 95% of the small businesses are doomed too.

The fact that 95% of the traders lose, is not something that can prevent you from learning how to trade, because there is always a high probability that you fail and you can not make any money through any other business that you try. This is not a reason for staying away from trading. If you do it, then you have to stay away from any other business too.

trading is a great opportunity for everybody to make money, no matter if you already have an income or not; No matter if you are educated or not; No matter if you are already wealthy or you have no money at all. You can learn to trade and make money.

Once you can achieve to make money through trading, and you feel the joy of sitting at your laptop and making money working few minutes per day, you will come to this conclusion that you have been too lucky that you have chosen to become a trader. If you choose the right way and you succeed to become a “consistently profitable” trader, you will see that trading is the best business one can ever have:

1. There is almost no limit in the amount of the money you can make. You can grow your account and make more money month after month.

Compare this to the other businesses. You can run a restaurant and make a lot of money, but the amount of the money you make through a restaurant or businesses like it, cannot go beyond a special limit. A restaurant with 12 tables can not make money more than a special limit even if it becomes a too busy restaurant. If you want to double your income, you have to double your restaurant size, which is not cheap and easy to do.

What about trading? You can open a small account, grow it steadily and patiently, and increase your income every month. I am not saying there is no limit in trading at all. There is a limit here too, but this limit will not be reached so easily.

2. You don’t have to have a lot of money to start a trading business. Once you get ready to start live trading, you can open an account as small as $1-2000 and grow it, until it turns into a reasonable account balance. Some people think that in order to trade professionally, they have to have a $500,000 account at least.

Compare this to the other businesses. To run a small business, you have to buy or rent a place. It needs a lot of money. To rent a place, usually you have to sign a 5 years contract. No matter if you make profit or not, you have to pay the rent. If you want to shut down the business, still you have to pay the rent, unless you find another tenant. You can not dissolve the rent contract otherwise. You have to spend a lot of money on the other things. You have to pay for utilities, services, transport, cleaning, insurance, furniture, decoration, marketing, advertising, gas (you have to drive to work every day), and… .

Depend on your business size, you will have to hire employees. You have to deal with the customers and clients. You have to spend several days, weeks, or even months to launch, and then at least 8 hours per day to maintain the business. You have to do all of these while still you don’t know whether you will make any profit or not.

What if the business you are spending too much time and money to run, doesn’t work and make any profit? You will have to shut it down, and so, most of the time and money you have spent on it will go down the drain. As I said, 95% of the small businesses fail. Refer to a local mall and talk to the businesses there and see how many of them are making money. Many of them struggle, lose a lot of money, and file bankruptcy finally.

You can start your trading business with a $1-2000 account and make a lot of money after a while. This is impossible to achieve with any other businesses as far as I know.

3. You don’t have to work too much as a full time traders. At least, my friends and me are like that. We spend only few minutes on trading every day. I don’t care that day traders spend several hours at the computer every day. They are wrong. Maybe some people like to suffer. But in order to make a reasonable amount of money through trading, you don’t have to spend several hours at the computer every day. In fact, I have never seen a day trader who makes money consistently: I Trade the Daily Chart, But I Am a Day Trader

I have so many trader and investors friends. All of them spend few minutes per day checking the charts. Therefore, trading is a “few minutes per day” business. Of course you will have to spend more time on it while you are learning it. For example, at the beginning you can spend several hours per day to read and learn. But once you reach to the live trading level and you become a professional full time trader, you will have to spend few minutes only. This is what we do.

What Does It Take to Become a Professional Full Time Trader?

You just need to read and learn. Do you think it is too hard to do that? You are wrong if you think so. It doesn’t take more than a couple of weeks, or a month, or a few months maximum (depend on the time you spend on learning). I see that some people spend several years on learning and practising, but they don’t make any money yet. They are not on the right track definitely.

No matter if today is the first day you have heard about trading, or you have been working on it for several years and you have had no success yet.

Once you reach the live trading level the way it is explained in the above article (and the articles listed in it), you can open a small live account, grow it slowly and patiently and turn it into a big trading capital.

Let me teach you another thing that takes your trading risk to ZERO:

When you are ready to open your live account, just open a small $1-2000 account, work on it and double it. Then withdraw half of it and keep on trading with the other half. Doing so, you will trade with your profit, and so you are not risking your hard earned money anymore.

So your trading business will be started for free and with a zero risk.

Now it is time to answer the question that How Does It Feel to Be a Professional Full Time trader?

You choose to become a trader. You learn, practice and you finally become a professional and full time trader the way I explained above. Maybe there are some other ways too, but I think my way is the best and easiest way, because it is free, it is too easy, it takes the less possible time, and it is risk free. So you follow my way and you become a professional and full time trader finally. How does it feel?

It feels great because…

  1. You have launched a great business with an unlimited income, for free. You have only spent some time to learn and launch the business.
  2. You have no loan, rent, expenses…
  3. You don’t have to do advertising and marketing.
  4. You don’t have to deal with the employees, customers and clients.
  5. You don’t have to spend time and money going to work and coming back every day.
  6. You don’t have to spend several hours per day working and maintaining the business.
  7. Your business is in your laptop that you can take wherever you go.
  8. You spend only few minutes per day checking some price charts and taking some positions (if there is any trade setup).
  9. You are free during the weekends.
  10. You make a lot of money.
  11. Your monthly income can increase month after month if grow your account and you don’t withdraw all your profit. Click Here to learn more.

How does it feel to have such a business?

It feels great. It is everybody’s dream to have such a business. You are at least one step ahead of those who also dream to have such a business and be financially free, but have not taken any step toward it yet. Keep on working. You are almost there 🙂

    I really love your articles on and it’s really helping me. Can you please write articles on leaving a trade open and allow it to run for two weeks or three weeks respectively.

    • Chris says:

      Hi Yomi, Thank you for your comment and sorry for replying you with a long delay. I don’t know why I had not seen your comment.

      Sure. I will arrange for an article on the topic you described.

  2. ayobami says:

    Honestly, I have been considering looking for another way to earn income until I stumbled on this website. May God bless that day. If I had known that this platform will give all I needed to trade successfully, I would have written the date I first found myself on this website on my diary and celebrate it like birthdays. I have blown up a good number of demo accounts and live accounts. But since I’ve been learning and following what is being writing here, I see myself recovery the lost accounts. I opened another demo account like 3 or 4 months ago with 100K, I lost about 16k on it but the good news is that after I found this website in just a month ago, I have recovered the loss and I’m now in a good profit level on it with just candlesticks and Bollinger Bands. It has never happen to me to recover a lost account and take it to a good profit level. I will keep trading on the demo till I double the account, then I will fund my live account again which I believe it will be the last time I’m gonna fund a live account.

    After my Bible, your articles are the best materials I find myself honoured to access.

    Sir, please I’m looking forward to have you write an article on how brokers operate, the market makers, the STP and the ECN and please I don’t mind if you could tell us the broker you are using.

    I can’t just thank you enough!

    God bless you sir
    Ayobami.

    • Chris says:

      Thank you too.

      We will write about brokers. At the meantime, you can read this one:
      https://www.luckscout.com/market-maker-brokers-hate-me/

      Unfortunately I can not recommend any broker here, because it can create legal issues. There are so many good ECN/STP brokers. You can google and find them.

      • Ayobami says:

        I’m grateful sir. God bless

      • fred sarigumba says:

        Hi Chris. If its not possible to share your broker name on this site for legal issues. Kindly send the name to my email pls. I just want to be sure im trading the best broker for . Im a proprietary trader for greatpoint capital LLC/towerhill before and am trading with a different firm and now consistently profitable to bad for them they let me go when im about to take off. i just want to explore because its a 24 hour market. im from the philippines and i trade US stocks at night around 9:30 during DST using takion platform HFT. most i close trade within the day because its dangerous for me to hold positions overnight due to gap in price trading stocks when it opens the following day.

        I just want to trade stress free during the day and sleep at night. Put the stock trading on automode using my own program link to takion and enjoy manual trading during the day. I just enjoy trading and i dont know what to do during day time. my email is [email protected]

        • Fred,

          My main accounts are with banks, not brokers. I trade currencies and stocks through the accounts I have with banks. I do have accounts with brokers but they are small and I use them to monitor the brokers activities to warn my friends and students in case a problem attracts my attention.

  3. Gert says:

    Thanks for this articles, it is a lot of help to me! I would love to learn more about Bollinger bands and candlesticks!

  4. Tom says:

    This article is great motivation for me, Chris what is your motivation teaching us? Please continue 😉

  5. EMMANUEL says:

    Chairman, no amount of greeting is enough for you. GOD just sent you to help the poor. My God we surely give eternal life.

  6. Okeke says:

    Chris, the reasons you gave above is why trading is so irresistible and why I haven’t given up on it. You don’t have to worry about rent, corporate tax, hiring employees, and overhead costs. It’s just you, your laptop, and a fast internet connection. The last one is a bit of a headache where I live though! LOL!

  7. Otto says:

    Great inspirational article, thank you!
    I think a lot of people just don’t believe that this is possible, so they don’t even start learning it, or they treat it scam. And they don’t know what they miss. Without believe one won’t succeed.

  8. Alejandro O, Bastida says:

    I like the statements of Yomi which is for his request of the articles…….

  9. Muahmmad Asim says:

    thanks.

  10. Daniel says:

    “I am not saying there is no limit in trading at all. There is a limit here too, but this limit will not be reached so easily.”

    tell us more about this limit 😉
    Which figures are we talking about and where do you see the risks once the account becommes to big. Does it attract the attention of the broker? Will they start trading against you? Can they once you pick the too strong setups? Which other risks do you see? You mentioned once that a fellow trading buddy of yours used to trade with tens of lots and his SL was not triggered. As a result he lost a lot. Do you mean such risks?
    Respect!
    Daniel.

    • Chris says:

      My friends loss was related to 2008. Taking 100 lots positions is not a big deal now. The limit is related to your account size. When your account turns into few millions, you’d better to trade through the banks, not the brokers. Banks don’t give you any leverage like what brokers do, but as your account is big, you will not need it. The bigger and the more liquid the market becomes, the better services you will receive from brokers.

      • Muggle says:

        Hi Chris,

        Don’t the banks, once you’ve decided to trade through them, give you ANY leverage, or is their leverage limited? What do you mean, exactly? And if they don’t offer any leverage, wouldn’t it be more profitable to trade through a broker who offers leverage?

        Cheers.

        • Chris says:

          Hi Muggle,

          No the banks don’t offer leverage. When a broker offers a 100:1 leverage, then each dollar of your account balance works as $100.

          Leverage has nothing to do with profit. It only enables you to take bigger positions with a smaller amount of money. If you don’t know how to use the leverage, it can even hurt your account.

  11. Daniel says:

    Hello Chris,

    in this article you mention: “I have so many , stock, options and future trading friends”. Why do you differentiate between them? I would call them all “traders”. Which are the particularities between each of these markets? When you have the time & willingnes, could you maybe elaborate on this subject? What should we be aware of when switching from to stock, futures or options? Should we take care about the reduced liquidity, about price gaps, do volumes play a more important role, and so on. Of course unde the assumption that we use the same trading system: Candlestick patterns and BBs.
    Respect!
    Daniel.

    • Chris says:

      Hi Daniel,

      They are all traders, but each of them is interested in one special sector. They share their knowledge and experience but they don’t like to switch their field, because they like their own and feel comfortable with it.

      I think I have already written an article about the difference of stock and technical analysis. I have to look for it and publish it on the site.

  12. NOOR says:

    Very useful article. I have spend 4 years to learn. Still i have not making profit consistently because of my greediness. I make monthly 500 to 1000 pips. Overall i dont get any profit because of changing lot. Please give me some advise.

  13. NOOR says:

    Thank u. Now i am full confident of to control my emotion

  14. SESHA says:

    Such a great explanation.
    Im glad as a beginner and i have learnt alot.
    and yet to learn more

  15. aquila heman says:

    Thanks Mr.Chris great article.

  16. Steve Edwards says:

    This is truly a very inspirational article…:)

    I have started many different types of business’s in the past, Architectural service, Personal Trainer, Music store & Real estate…all of them successful but to time consuming and to much stress…

    I made the decision to try to learn to become a successful trader….It has now been 5 years or more of continuous learning, the wrong way I might ad. I have spent many thousands of dollars trading with the wrong mindset (too Greedy) along with being a system jumper.

    After finding your site and reading and learning your system Chris, I have had a major awakening and feel for the first time, that I will succeed. I am at a stage in my trading now where I can allow myself to slow things down, control my emotions and trade a longer time frame. I just wish I would have found you and Fxkey’s a long time ago.

    I have had a handful of mentors in the past, all of them put together are not even close to as good as you…!!

    You’re like many have said, a gift from God!

    Thank you …. Truly, Thank you!!

  17. Sanjeewa Perera says:

  19. willy fernando says:
