To be one of the seemingly few, who doesn't lose...

Everyone lose occasionally, even professional traders. No one is 100% successful. The thing is to have more wins than losses.

Totally agree with you. If you trade it is more likely to lose as well. I didnt hear about trader that didnt have negative result in his account (it may be only one trade, but its there :D )

Me neither. And that's human traders. EAs also have a certain percentage of losses.

For me trading is about mastering myself. Technical's and fundamentals are of course important but keeping an even keel during trading and being disciplined are the keys to success.

I'd add knowledge and experience to that, but I do agree with you.

As for me - overall area around Forex and such. I do see how great it is and want to do something like that for myself. See my points ? I do see it's going in that direction clearly. I am making some good income from Forex now, but it's not stable.

To my mind, ther are two great things in trading: scaling and independence.
In usual life scaling opportunities depend on particular activity. If you are sole practicioner like a lawyer or a doctor, your scaling opportunities limited by your time and performance. If you have your own business, your scaling opportunities would be limited by the demand on the goods or services you offer and financial capabilities of your clients. A the same time, there is no scaling limit it trading. Market liquidity is huge, while it is always possible to expand your trading to other markets.
Another point is independence. In any other sphere your income depends on value you bring to other people. If you are a professional, you will bring value for your employer and your salary would depend on the number of the specialists with the same qualification. If you have your own business, your income would depend on value you bring to your clients and also on the number of your competitiors offering something similar. The idea is that the client would move to another business, or the employer would engage another professional if it would be reasonable. At the same time, you bring no value in trading, you just earn money for yourself, so you would not be replaced in any situation. But keep in mind that lack of lifelong self-education and professional development could leave you outside just like in any other profession.

Money and freedom for me for sure. I came to this business because I was sick and tired of my stupid 9-5 job. It took a while for me to start making good money of Forex, but it's totally worth it.
