Hello everyone! I just found this forum not too long ago and have read around a little bit. I am pretty new to the financial market. I just got into it at the beginning of this year. Since then I have been studying technical analysis tenaciously. I haven't looked much at fundamentals yet because I am primarily interested in swing trading. My understanding is that swing traders often do not concern themselves with fundamentals.
I am hoping to get four or five thousand dollars together to use as trading capital. I am wondering what my expectations may be for this. I am 24 years old and willing to study technical analysis and trading very hard. Would it be possible to one day turn four to five thousand in trading capital into a large enough sum that I could live off my trading gains? Say for instance could I eventually make 30,000 to 40,000 dollars a year with just an initial investment of four to five thousand dollars? How long would it take the average person to reach this goal? Is this an unrealistic expectation?
Thank you so much for reading my post and I hope one day I can be knowledgeable enough to help others with the market!
