Hey Sosuave brothers, I've got $10 000.00 to my name that I managed to earn through forex trading over a 6-7 month period. I'm not kidding myself into thinking I'm good at trading either, because prior to this I'd lost $4000.00 over a 3 year period trying to make money through forex and it's only been recently that something clicked and I've managed to see consistent profits. Regarding the trading, I enjoy it, and I believe that over a long enough period of time I'd be able to increase my trading capital and in turn see some serious money, however, forex is like driving while seriously drunk. Predicting market movement is more often than not a hunch and it feels like murphy's law is just waiting around the corner to fck me in the ass (for anyone interested I mostly use Fibonacci retracements and lots of line trend resistance and support. Just basic, simple stuff). As such I want an alternative means of income. At the moment I'm currently a 23 year old university student going through a quarter-life crisis (currently studying a medical imaging degree). I'll hopefully graduate at the end of 2013 (provided I survive the coming apocalypse and manage to pass all my courses). All things considered, IF I can manage to keep my GPA/work ethic/etc. up and score well on entrance exams, I plan on going into graduate medicine, however, failing that I plan on getting a job as a medical imaging professional and being bored with life pressing buttons. I need an escape route. I don't know how to describe this feeling but I'm restless. If i were a doctor (or one in training) I'd be satisfied with my lot (I've shadowed and interacted with numerous doctors as a student on clinical placements and the like), but that train is getting further and further ahead of me and I've no idea whether I'll ever manage to get on. Medical imaging in the real world is mind-numbingly boring to me. Studying it is great! Real life makes it robotic and mundane. So I'm ultimately looking for a way to further engage myself (if life takes the boring track). Towards that end, is there anything, at the moment that I could use the $10000.00 for, apart from further forex trading, that could potentially lead to a field/career other than medical imaging? I was thinking online-business, but I have no idea what service I could provide for the general public and my creative juices are at an all-time low. Further investing in precious metals or stocks doesn't sound viable with only $10000 as capital. Properties sound interesting but the risks are huge. ... At the end of the day - I've no idea. I was hoping one of you guys would.
