The intraday is a casino

    Simply what happens to me is that I am not smart enough.
    For this game you have to be very, very, very, very smart.
    Even so, being very, very, very smart, the market will always have a random component where intelligence is useless.

    If you are concerned with not loosing lots of money, I think intraday is your BEST choice as a trading style to master. Directional options may be a good choice as well. Do not do any trading(not talking about investing) that involves overnight risk. One day you will wake up with big losses. Don't get lulled by the long low volatility bull run, this is not the norm. The longer the timeframe, the larger the drawdowns, the longer the recovery time, and the least confidence, imho. You need to be well capitalized to play that properly.

    BTW, the machines are NOT taking your "children's bread." Why are you even trading with bread money anyway?

    Good luck.

    In life there is not much difference between whether you get bad luck or good luck. it is what you do with that luck that makes all the difference in the end.

    lots of luck, TTT

  7. I am a day trader and it is not a casino, its a system. If you are blessed to have the knowledge and understand the setups then it's highly successful.

    Er, yeah, those times ended a couple months ago. They be over. Maybe you have not heard, but the long low volatility bull market is kaput?

  9. Oh, I'm already tired of these casinos because they are constantly cheating. I also used to go to the casino, but when I found out that my favorite casino has a website, I started playing no download casino slots online. I feel the same atmosphere only online. I played in this online casino for a couple of months and won about 25,000 dollars and I had no problems with this site, and the money was withdrawn very easily. So if you are looking for a good online casino then you need to play here.

    Yes it's like a casino -- if you're inexperienced.

    if you're experienced, it's more like playing poker vs fish/donks, knowing pot odds & having an edge & using risk mgmt the right way
