    I have a friend who's a pilot/trader and he does better then most imo.
  4. I have heard that they are - must be very disiplined and follow checklists.

    And would army folks be more diciplined at trading?

    Both are trained to make quick and correct decisions - their lives depend upon it?

    Yeah, right...take a pilot out of the cockpit, and they're like fish out of water :p

    i also think that profession would be one of the better ones for trading.

    1. discipline
    2. Used to being bored
    3. Knows how to handle stress
    4. overall calm
    5. lots of study and preperation.

    think so, they are trained to check off the pre-flight list and follow the rule as oppose to the rest of population as wild gold prospector
