OK I’ll chime in on this issue. As a retail investor I must face reality that I’m not in the industry. There are thousands of professionals who are in the investing business every day of their life. There are good ones for sure. I am honest enough to admit that I will never know as much as those talented ones. Just like they would never know as much as I do in my career as a Healthcare Staffing professional. I posted last eeek that after doing some research I have found mutual fund managers that are beating the market. They do exist. But if I’m gonna trade I’m looking to beat the crap out of market returns. Otherwise I might as well stick my money in index funds and leave it.
