At some point, you will think of quitting your job especially if you have been working for several years but you are not getting satisfaction from doing it. It’s okay to think that way but is it the practical thing to do? Are you ready to quit your job? Do you have enough resources to sustain your life? Ask these questions to yourself first before you decide quitting. Now, since some people are asking me if they can do trading for a living, here’s my answer.

Well, it’s possible to do trading for a living. If you think this is your passion and you can earn profit by stock trading, then that’s your go signal to start now. Not all people are interested to trade instead of working in the corporate world. You are lucky if you have all the resources to study the stock market. Just make sure that you will be patient in learning because this is not a one-day session. It may take years before you master the art of trading but that should not be a hindrance. If you believe that there is money in trading, go for it.
If you are just starting, I recommend you to trade slowly. Do not be greedy and gamble all your money without knowing the proper way how to do it. Use a small amount of money then gradually increase it as you learn more about trading. Doing it slowly will help you a lot. Again, patience is needed. Your earnings won’t come right away. There is a process and you must be aware of that. Do not expect that you will gain overnight if it’s your first time doing it.
You don’t have to do it alone. When you are trading, you must look for a mentor to teach you something you don’t know yet. Books can teach you a lot but experience is a better teacher. Trust me, it’s better and more exciting to trade with a coach. Or if not a coach, you can find a group who trade and share your ideas with them. With the growing traders today, you won’t fail to look for people who do the same hobby as you. There are a lot of support groups, especially on Facebook.
