Is trading your main source of income?

I'm just curious to know if most of the other members here are trading full-time or part time. Does anyone here work a typical job and trade on the side, or is trading 100% your main focus? Anybody have anything going on on the side, like freelance work or other projects? Just asking out of curiosity!

I trade part-time and still do some writing gigs on Upwork. I think knowing that I'm not fully reliant on the trading income makes me a more conservative trader than an aggressive one. I could either swing trade or scalp on days I'm off work.

I always have multiple things going on as you simply can't rely on forex for income. But in any case even if I didn't trade I'd have multiple income streams as the idea of being reliant on a single source frankly scares the s*** out of me.

Same here! Trading is my main focus but it's always good to have some other things going on on the sidelines as well.

What kind of things do you write about on there, or is it just different projects? I've been looking into gigs on Fiverr but haven't checked out Upwork yet.

Hi there guys Forex is my business apart from it there is nothing. No side income...I rely on my everyday loss and wins and make sure I make profit
