I've been trading for only about 6 years now. In 2009 it marked the beginning of a washout of traders from the industry that has continued through 2010. I am not one saying 'daytrading is dead'. I have made good money, and have seen lots of other people make great money in 09 and 10. But in general, it seems like the majority are struggling. I personally think the washout will continue through 2011 but am curious about what the 'general concensus' is from people at other firms (larger than say 50 traders), whom have been trading for say 5+ years. I also imagine we get some cosolidation on the industry level in the form of firms closing & mergings. So what are your thoughts Don & Maverick & others? I was shocked to see 2 days into 2011 that there has been no "P&L 2011" thread in the Journals.. only find out that no one has posted in the 2010 for several weeks. Sign of the times?
