I'll post lots if you pay me just for the profitable ones. If I'm such a scab that shouldn't cost you much, right?
That's what I thought. All talk. No sheep.

Quote from t0pd0g:

I disagree that the stock market is a zero sum game....where every time someone makes money someone has to lose. For example, when LNKD opened at $81 today and I bought there and sold at $82, who lost?

Every trader I talked to made money going long LNKD today!

Another example...A stock closes at $25 one day with no shorts outstanding and opens the next day at $30. Who lost money?

Options and futures zero sum...stocks not.

if you only made $1 on that gamble, you lost. Next time you lose $5

Not to mention the $ you left on the table for no particular reason

Why do the people who claim one can't make money trading spend so much time on ET trying to prove it to others?

Why don't they spend all that time learning to trade?

Too simple, huh?

I'll post lots of trades and a majority of them will make money but why should you benefit from them?

You make wayyyy too much sense. +1

One explanation is that the naysayers are failed traders and it just waxes their butts to think someone succeeded where they failed miserably.
