How much time a day should one give to trading? Can you cope with a 9-5 job?

How much time a day should one give to trading, is it possible to do in a smaller way alongside a conventional 9-5 job?

I can actively trade from 6am this morning to 12 tonight and do that five days a week. Yes it’s possible to do on a smaller timescale along with a nine to five job, trading the higher timescales at the end of the day.

Note: Don’t lose heart and keep trade sizes small would be my advice – This market IS frustrating especially just now and you are far from alone. Even after all these years I still make losing trades so just try and make sure that winners outstrip losers if you can and try and preserve trading capital as best you can.
