  1. So would Spock have been a good trader?

    He's totally rational, yet the markets are not rational but rather reflect human emotion. Spock never seemed to understand human emotion......

    I always used to think Spock would be a great trader. You want to detach from human emotion when trading. Ideally, all your decisions would be based on only reason and logic.
  3. Someone had to figure I would get a comment in here on this one.
    I agree with lescor. There are trading environments where market sentiment and emotions are already built in so Spock would have felt right at home.

    Trade consistently and prosper.
  4. Spock: Random chance seems to have operated in our favor.
    McCoy: In plain, non-Vulcan English, we've been lucky.
    Spock: I believe I said that, Doctor
