It seems to me there has been a huge shift in public opinion in the fallout of the financial crisis. I am from the UK and there has always been an attitude of championing the underdog and laughing at the people at the top of their game. I always admired the US where success was congratulated. But it seems now even you are getting infected by this attitude whereby all the successful people must have cheated in some way. This obviously leads to people turning their guns towards traders and it seems to me they are getting their way. I have been a professional trader for 6 years and the markets seem like they have had the life sucked out of them. Regulation is killing off so many prop desks, retail investors are scared to get involved. Volumes on a lot of contracts are falling off a cliff. Its like there is nobody left in the game. Normally this wouldnt bother me too much as these things move in cycles, but the unwinding of this current situation could be so violent i cant see the central banks letting that happen. And if the markets are left to rebalance on their own it will be us traders again that get it in the neck for capitalizing on the moves! How do you see this playing out?
