Default Make a living?

Hello. I have some basic questions...
1.Is there anyone on this forum that is a fulltime trader?
2. If you are a fulltimer, how big is your account balance?

I ask this because I trade almost everyday on soccer and have now manage to turn my 1000 SEK into 12300 SEK since 1 january. I hope this continue going My way so I in the future may be a fulltimer

Have a read of this current thread. It shows what a full time trader has been able to achieve starting with a £5 bank in a matter of days.

How big is your account balance?





Is it just me, or does balance rhyme with relevance.. Well, maybe reaching, but point is, umm, yeah...

after the cases of hacked accounts in serbia, nobody's going to say the amount they have in betfair in an open forum.

anyway the size of the bank doesnt make a trader more successful.
if we dont have the knowledge, in every game the capital can only temporarily "buy" probability in our favor, but (for the mathematic law of the big numbers) in the long run we're going to lose cause the real probability gets closer and closer to the theoric one.
