Only around what, one or two percent of traders (short term) are successful right? And then some can only break even and most all fail... so is there a statistic or at least a concesus on option traders? I figured any joe can open an account and learn to hit the bid or ask and blow the acc in no time. But for someone to venture into options takes a little more understanding and patience than your typical get rich quick mentality usually strives for. So I was just thinking maybe option traders in general would have a higher success rate. Any thoughts?
