@Mono_trader hey matt. first i would like to congratulate to on all of your recent success and for coming out on the 10% side of traders who make money in the market lol. but i been studying full-time almost 6 hours away a day for the past 6 months and have yet gain confidence or consistency. is there a way i could pick your brain for about 10 minutes to gain a little knowledge from an advanced trader such as your self?

@mono_trader Hey Matt. I just watched the latest interview video Sykes posted and learned that you have a full-time job. I had wrongly assumed that you only did trading full-time, but I am glad to know you've found success while balancing another job. I too have a full-time job and sometimes find myself having trouble balancing my normal workload and the screen time I put into trading. I've been studying since March of this year and am picking up as much information from as many sources as possible so I can eventually make day trading a full-time opportunity for myself. I'd like to know what type of work it is you do full-time, outside of trading, and if you have any tips for balancing your workload between day trading and your other job. For context, I work in AV and Video Telecommunications for a software company and am fortunate to have been able to transition to working from home. Thank you!

I have a degree in software engineering but... I don't use it lol. I work full time as a financial editor. So I manage a lot of publications related to the stock market. I manage the two by dedicating certain hours for work (7am to 9 am EST) and then certain hours for stocks (9am - 11 am EST). If I have meetings there isn't much I can do. Outside those hours, I don't trade much so mainly focus on work the rest of the day

Thank you, that's helpful information. Allotting specific hours allows for focused attention to one craft. Much better than being distracted by work and trade which is what I am currently doing. Ha, I was a music major so I know how you feel. I got that college experience though. You get paid to learn more about the stock market… That sounds like a great job for a day trader! Thanks for you time, Matt. I appreciate it.

Im understanding fully what your feeling felt the same way when I started. It will only be destructive to yourself by comparing your earnings to other advanced, vet, and expert traders. Being a devoted trader takes years some can do it in less time, most of us have had issues along the way.
