I have an ethical question, which I find difficult to deal with. When short the overall markets, or long in oil or gold stocks, isn't there a kind of hidden wish that something bad happens in the world in order to benefit from that event? I am currently trading two swing systems which are exclusively long, so at least I do not have the short situation, but quite often my systems are long stocks which will benefit from bad news. In a way one could relate this to politicians which probably hope that something goes bad when their opponents are in power (This works for all parties, I suppose). Any thoughts on how traders deal with this dilemma?
