Trading my time/life for $$ is the worst way to earn.
I do it daily.
Life is so much easier when you are single, you can sell everything you own except a laptop & a backpack and then receive government assistance while you trade your way to riches on stolen wifi If you really want to get out then you need to:1) bump your account to 12% of your gross income2) start with 1 or 2 micro lots on all of your trades
(later you will be risking 10 cents per pip per $10,000)
(use 2 micro if 1 pip is less than 10 cents)3) small targets of 26 to 39%
(it takes a lot more time to compound if you aim higher)
(after you have made 13% you can trade as if you were targeting 13-26%;
you can reduce your size a little and set aside space) 4) take a check for 88% of your account after you make a zero
(we drain money out of the market, we play for keepsies)
...verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
This mustard seed of ours is a micro lot, one looks at it and says "how will this ever become a mighty tree?". Have faith son, have faith.
