My actual trading only takes me about 30 minutes each day since I trade Daily time frames.

Work is slow, plenty of free time to surf the net...

Other than that it's just patience for a few years while I let compound interest do all the work.

Anyway you're right, it is a waste of time. Feel free to close, lock, or delete the thread. Whatever. I won't be coming back.

I thought I could offer a perspective on someone trying to hit FI in a few years by hard work and unconventional methods. Apparently that's not wanted here.

I get very little satisfaction in belittling all of your accomplishments, compared to what you guys seem to get out of doing so to mine. Maybe it's just a defense mechanism; unwilling to accept that anybody could be successful without grinding tens of thousands of hours in some halogen-lit cubicle and clipping coupons every weekend from the Sunday paper. Unwilling to accept that someone else could be smarter or has a better way of doing something. Maybe there's a name for that. I'm not a psychologist.

People probably expected me to never return after starting this thread. Instead I do, with news that my ventures are going well. And I get promptly shat on.

Well, I'm out. Maybe you'll see me in the Wall Street Journal one day.

Apologies that I tend to go against the grain; question the established norms that go unquestioned... I've found that to be the reason I succeed where so many others fail.

Good luck kid. Hope you learn something from the financial butt-kicking you're about to experience.

Happily retired since 2009, at age 61.
