In my opinion, daytrading is merely the recognition of patterns. A rat eventually learns to run the correct way in a maze. Fundamental analysis is requires brainpower, for it is required by the analyst to examine the data and apply it to his own view of what is a successful business model. Making a proper call on the proper fundamentals means that the analyst actually knows more than the market. It's a great place to be. So I summarize by saying===> average returns are for average investors, superior returns are for superior investors. Your comments are welcome.
