Anyone know any professional stock or options traders that have no college training on their craft?

Question by jjohnson5677: Anyone know any professional stock or options traders that have no college training on their craft? I am looking for a professional or semi-pro (part time) options or swing trader that is not college educated on the subject. I am looking for someone that is self taught through books, seminars (training courses) and /or trial and error. My questions are: 1. What % of your capital do you make on average per month or year? 2. How much capital do you have? 3. Are you primarily an options spreader, swing trader, or both? 4. How consistent are the returns month to month. 5. How long did it take to learn to be a consistent winner? 6. Did you have a mentor? 7. In your opinion is it possible to do it by yourself or do you need a mentor?

I am not college educated, and I am interested in this field without college education. Thanks anyone for help. Any books or mentoring programs recommended on application (not theory) would help.

I am a full time stock trader and I am not aware of ANY good traders that learned their craft in college. You ask the right questions but to answer them would require a book. You are welcome to join our stock picking group at:
