If I were to get a Ferrari it would be an F430, around $200,000. (I would rather have an 08 Porsche GT2 for that price) That would also eliminate all of my earnings, A.K.A. a dumb ass move. I would much rather keep my earnings to increase my profit for the next year, and then buy a house.

Tell you what, when summer comes I'll do exactly as I stated. I'll post balances, recorded trades, and etc.. (Screenshots, papers, the works.) I'll show you that making 10%+ in a week is easy.

You’ve really got to make this anonymous, no way 90% of us will say how much we make on a public forum.

Let me guess... you just straight up trade stock? No hedging? That is pretty dumb. You talk like I thought back in HS / College. Yeah 100K easy money. Haha, I wish it was that way.

I can't complain too much, I live in a really low cost of living area and make right over 60K a year <1 year out of school (~2,750 a month after taxes, 401K, HSA, etc.). I live well enough to be happy where I am... that is all that matters to me (btw, I am an actuary... great profession and easy to get a job if you can pass the tests )

175K....but can only afford a 325..you need at least 300K to afford a 335 and a millionbzillion dollars to afford anything with an M in front of the number.

thats what im sayin...

10% a week is easy IF you have insider knowledge, like what the economic reports are gonna say BEFORE they happen or what a companys earnings will be BEFORE they announce them its gonna be tough....

if you are going to day trade penny stocks from home you most likely dont have the institutional technology that real day traders have...so how exactly do you plan on doing that?

if you are sticking solely to stocks are you planning on shorting them as well?

I don't mind saying what I earn because incomes are public knowledge in Norway you just have to know the persons name then you look them up on the interweb thingy and you can find out everything.
Is that with most jobs in Norway though??

Forgot to mention that I don't make anything ATM. I go to school, hang out with friends, and lounge around all day.

Pardon me for saying this but I think you're nucking futz for wanting to be anywhere near the financial sector right now. Times are good right now but are going to get pretty lean for the next few months/years. You can use all the forumulas you want to long and short things but at the end of the day you're still at the mercy of public opinion. And IMHO the public is pretty stupid.

0 down on my 335, 5% car loan 72 months is $671 / month. I'm sure if you got a few more options, etc it'd be around 750. When I bought the car I put the $43k in a 5.05% account, so in reality I only pay principal.
