  1. Please answer this poll IF AND ONLY IF you work (or worked) for a retail firm and have inside knowledge about trader statistics.

    I read somewhere that 99.999% of retail traders fail. If you work for a retail firm and have inside information on statistics like these, please answer the poll.
