    The first thing that people who will be wealthy in the future learn is budgeting. This means delayed gratification. That means that the skills that would put you into being a successful forex trader, discipline and delayed gratification do not meld well with your desire for a Lamborghini. Your lack of study focus and ability also means you lack discipline. Since you can't master basic stuff at the high school level you will never master such nuance based issues as are present in the forex or stock market.

    If you come from modest roots, you have to learn such skills if you ever hope to be wealthy. I know it is possible to go from noggin head idiot to successful millionaire, but it will take discipline. A skill you apparently lack and are unwilling to develop at this time .

    Before you waste your seed corn on investments you might consider using a "simulated" portfolio on Yahoo finance where you can test your skills and measure your competence. The market will be choppy for the next 6 months...give it a try and see if you would have made money or lost your fortune.

    Honestly no, the type of people that make 6 or 7 figure salaries in the city have masters degrees in economics from the top universities and work for hedge funds and investment banks, and even those have a tendency to lose a lot now and again. And that's the sort of salary your going to need to run a car like that.

    That doesn't mean someone with very little education can not start a business that will make him/her a multi millionaire, most entrepreneurs aren't academically gifted.....but you are wasting your time in the financial markets.

    Not going to happen, the people who actually strike it big in forex markets have years of experience in the stock market, and usually have lots of friends who they can get advice from when they need it (other stock market geniuses). If you want that car, you are going to have to work hard and relentlessly to get to that point, and start right now! You need to make it your life starting now, your old life is over, your old interests are over, money is your driving force, and time is your only asset, your only worthwhile pursuit. If you get distracted by the fancy cars and big houses, then it will never be more than a "pie in the sky" dream. Keep pursuing your dreams, and if you are determined to prove me wrong, then you will be the next rich fancy f**k driving an audi r8 v10, but I warn you now, it isn't easy, having a regular 9 to 5 job is far less demanding and far too simple, but it is what most people settle for. Do you want to play kiss *** with your boss from the start of your career until retirement, then have the rest of your life to realize how much time was wasted making someone else money, and how insignificant your decision making capabilities in your career were? Well it's going to happen, and more than likely between you and your friends, all of you will have jobs most of your life and suffer financially, I hate to be a jerk, but thats reality, its up to you to change it, do you want to fall under the statistics as another "average" person?

    I have been trading over 34 years using over a hundred different systems, but as you might guess only few of them showed consistent profits. This is one of them

    What's most important is that they really cares about his fellow traders. Every time I have a question he is here for me, and he replies to emails really fast.

    I trebled my stake in about 10 years - slow but steady. Trading is essentially gambling, so you should never spend more than you can afford to lose.
