I know we all want to be George Soros/ Gordon Gekko etc... But the more I think about it as long as do your D.D and find a good trader (who fits your risk criteria etc..) why not let them run your account day to day? That means you do not have to spend all day glued to the machine. Take time away. Do other things. Sure finding a good trader is not easy and you really have to do your d.d. but isn't this the wise thing to do for 99% of "would be traders" rather then trying to figure it out them-selves?
