The Life of a Trader Can Be Lonely:
More often than not, active stock traders (especially day traders) work from home without much of your classic “office commingling” that comes along with your typical 9-5. Full-time traders can spend hours at their computers all day, making stressful decisions on their own without any human interaction. The problem with this is that humans are incredibly social beings – they long for connections to individuals with shared interests, constantly searching for that “community-feel”.
Do yourself a favor and find a supportive community of like-minded traders. Not only will it help your emotional well-being by communicating with others, but you can receive insights and trade ideas from other traders as well. It’s simply impossible to cover every aspect of the market alone, and ultimately, a community can thoroughly enhance your trading results. There are plenty of chat rooms, forums, and services out there that can solve your problem – become part of a “team” and strengthen your skills.
