I have been trading for several years and do my best to always continually improve my techniques - but I am not very successful as a trader. I seem to lose money at this point. I keep wondering if I just keep learning for a few more years and keep at it that one day there will a light at the end of the tunnel and I am profitable and doing really well from trading alone. My background has nothing to do with Finance. I studied music. For trading I just learn from books and online and I keep learning diligently but I still wonder if it is even worth it. Often the whole system of the stock markets feels completely rigged against me. What are my chances of becoming successful and making enough money from trading to make it my way of life and not having another job? I have heard of people struggling the first several years and then they finally reach a point that they are profitable and have strong skills to weather any market. What are the odds??? Thank you!
