    They are trading super leveraged products, have massively deep pockets, and can keep positions for months.

    They also can get phone calls from politicians, etc... that can legally say, "yeah, short our currency, that makes sense in the long-term."

    So, why do retail traders watch the Yen go from 79 to 79.10 and try to short it all day, because it moved "too much". LOL

    Listen up traders......today.......pick on commodity.

    bet big. or go home.

    oh wait, you are probably already home.

    the money's got to come from somewhere...they're making money off each other. the average retail investors do not have "billions" for them to take.

    Of course you can. They made $1 billion with a $24 billion account... In other words, 4% returns. Anyone on this site can do that.

    Retail day traders only blow up because they hope to make 1000% a year, and think super-leverage is the key to success.
