    One guy makes 100+ trades per day and moves 100K+ shares and another guy buys 2 stocks and sells them in 2 months. Are they both traders? What s the true definition of being a trader?
     
  2. Helping pay for the profits of the nimble.
     
  3. Unless you inherit stocks from aunt Bessie and leave them to your kids in your will, "you are a trader"... different time frames for different folks, but a trader nonetheless. Yes, Warren Buffet is a trader.
