Well trading is a mesmorizing proposition for sure. But w/ mini's and micro contracts on the Forex side of the business the whole money/risk aspect is taken down a big notch. The down-side of it for me is it takes so long. I'll end up stalking a market move for hours at a time and I'm not even in the trade yet, then when I get in it, it may take hours and hours more...I do it now because that's my job -- see link below. But if I knew I would never have to concern myself w/ money, I sure the hell would do it a lot less.
