Part II - Your Support Network

Do not underestimate emotional support

As an individual taking their first steps to becoming a futures trader, the most important psychological baggage you need to pack with you is support from your family and to some extent your friends. Support from loved ones should not be underestimated. If you do not have their unequivocal support, you will struggle and your chances of failing increase dramatically.

Unless you are a lone wolf and are going about this journey solo, you should engage your family in the career choice you are about to embark on. A day trader.

For some people, even uttering the phrase “day trader” conjures up images of young men in expensive suits holding a bottle of champagne in one hand and the latest edition of the Yuppie Handbook in the other. Fresh pasta dinners, parquet floors, live-in help, guaranteed squash court times. Oh, to be a Young Urban Professional in the 80s and 90s.

So, let us begin. Navigate your way through Part II by using the menu on the right hand side.
