Since we are in business of making money on future events not present, we might as well consider how things changed. Is it true what some hold that there is nothing new on wall st and can never be. I don't actually believe it, because I find that investors/traders are more sophisticated now than 15 years ago. Computers being a real culprit for that, computers have really helped out people be better at this game. Now if I am right, (and I am) what does this mean for the future, I'll tell you what it means, it means that price movements will be more and more random. I am not saying that people won't be able to make money, but we will be forced to become greater duration traders. More time will take to make the same amount of money etc.. Future I think is horrible, bots and lots of bots, screwing the average trader, banks and other institutions just going high tech ballistic reverting price to mean. Well this is already happening.
