I traded the silver market for a couple of years. I started right after DS was born and just closed my account late last year. In all honesty, it was very stressful. I was always worried about making the wrong decision and losing my money (which I did, right off the bat, but then managed to make it back). I originally had a broker who I relied on for info, but after I lost about 10,000 b/c of him, I ditched him and did it all myself.
I'm thinking that this is probably what I will do with my time as a single parent in the near future. It's unstable, but with the right setup, I have confidence I can do it. I will have both the kids in some kind of part-time care and that will give me a few hours a day to concentrate on it. It takes a lot of time to keep up with all the news, which is the best way I found to figure out the trends.
It took a lot of trial and error for me to learn what I was willing to do, what kinds of risks I could take, but there is potential there.
I also wanted to say that my STBXH bought the wisetrade software...retail. It seriously wasn't worth all the money and as a pp said, isn't 100% reliable.
