The reality is, more than 90% of small traders lose!! They just lose!!!
I am looking for the best answers
Let me try to participate by my 5 cents

Traders (i.e., small speculators) are doomed because the exchange (and the market as a whole) is a specialized organization to ravage them.

Mammals can not eat predators, at best, only a similar or even weaker. It is the law of the nature, and nobody can arguing against it.

Small animals can successfully parasitize on top predators in food chain, though, nature knows many precedents of this.

you are absolutely right: the vulture is the most long living role on the market but who have the courage to admit that he dreamed of becoming a partner vulture?

Look at the first part of my nickname.

Seriously, I like vulture analogy, it may be not too "cool" but it's relatively safe way to parasitize on lion's dinner.
