Neutral and pairs trading. What is the experience with these two types of trading. Market makers and pros tend to use neutral and pairs trading. non-directional trades. The game is rigged against directional traders. Daytrading momentum and scalping is the only way to make money honestly in this market. pump and dump traders and ponzi scheme operators is how crooked hedge funds and some crooked market makers make money. and in your face fraud. And the minimum $25,000 PDT by SEC is to block small pikers from stealing from the market makers. most people don't have $25,000 to daytrade so they go to prop firms and pay $350/month in fees to have privillege to gamble. Which imo wall street operators like goldman sachs is full of bullshit.
