Everyone has heard that 90% of retail traders are losers. That's an interesting statistic but what I would like to know is how does that number change if you consider number of years trading. Could it be that a large chunk of that 90% is made up from novice traders that blow up within 6 months never to trade again. It's guess work but I would think that 70% of retail traders that have been trading for 2 years are losers ... possibly less than 50% of retail traders who have been in the game for more than 6 years are losers. Can anyone answer with more authority? I think this is worth discussing.
