I am interested in becoming a full-time trader. Any thoughts on the best software and/or training to use to get started? (I know someone who uses investools). How much capital is necessary to get started, assuming I would like to make at least $5,000 per month? Any thoughts or feedback would be most welcome. Many thanks.

I wouldn’t suggest quiting your full time job. You can start watching markets and paper trading. You can also open a $100 account to Oanda to get comfortable with trading. Don’t expect to make money for a while. Good luck! or – google tim sykes. also, it is a LOT harder than it looks. trading is very different than having som comfty job where you regurgate what is in the WSJ/CNBC. bottom line, take your time and start small.

just watch as many episodes of mad money as you can. just buy everything that cramer says to buy. you will be an instant millionaire.
