Investing, and getting into full-time trading, has become one of the most desirable things to do, but some may not understand what sacrifices investing requires. Several online brokers have experienced people asking for advice on how to make a lot of money investing, after quitting previous full-time jobs.

Experts often advise reading books by successful investors because self-learning is a standard part of the job.
