    TBH I prefer my normal job(at the moment at least) as it is not as stressful and I know the guaranteed money is coming at the end of the month.

    My thoughts exactly. I am a part time Forex Trader and that is what I will be in a long time. I don't think I need to quite my job to focus on Forex, unless Forex leads me to financial freedom eventually.

    Also it depends on your trading style and if you need to be by your PC all day or can set and forget.

    A normal job is good for a simple life, no risk. Eat, sleep, travel, club, friend circle, everything you can enjoy.

    Decision should be made very carefully. Can you be 100% sure that you can support your living only from trading Forex? On the other side you can look for open job vacancies and be employed as a trader. This way you will have monthly salary and do trading

    Easy for me, Forex. Main reason is you can do it from anywhere in the world.

    Forex is really profitable if you learn the required knowledge and skills to make money from it otherwise better to stick with the normal job while learning to the skills needed in forex trading.

    Until you can make a living out of it I think you should get a normal preferably more than average paying job to take all the risks along with it. It's good that you can make money from any point in the world. But you should be able to make them actually;) And it will take some time if ever happens.

    I prefer to have alternative sources of income besides Forex.Now I have more than a month there is no profit from Forex, even there are small losses. It's annoying because I have to live on the same salary. But if there was no salary, the situation would be difficult at all.

    Imagine: you and other traders bring money to the dealing center. From this money dealing pays a salary to managers, analysts, dealers, the main boss who owns this dealing, for advertising...and a little to me, on the payment of profit. How does every trader hope to earn in this system? If everyone starts earning, then dealing will worsen trading conditions, so that most could not earn. Or close.

    I prefer a good combination of both anyway, something may fail along the way and you will really need the support being done here, so please make it possible for us to participate there. How is your own personal experience going on with that ?

    Exactly the same for me. A good combination of both is the best for me. Multiple streams of income - multiple ways to recover if one or two of them goes down.

    If you can make a living for yourself off of Forex - Good for you! that's awesome, but I would also urge you to be self-aware of the grind and burnout that goes with doing it full time!

    Right now I don't think I could pull doing it full-time off because of the time demands, I work freelance, but I am able to knock-out a day's work in no more than 4-5 hours at most, which is what allows me the time to deal with Forex just a little, enough to create some extra income, but not so much that it overtakes my daily schedule.

    If I continue to be successful and find a way of balancing the two - I may change my tune, but for the moment - I am sticking to my day job and treating Forex more like a side gig.
