Trading versus investing?

Discussion in 'Trading' started by pigsgetrich, Jun 8, 2006.

  1. What's the difference between trading and investing to the "elite trader" members?
  2. This exact question is covered in most of our basic classes. Investors look to get "REturn on Investment" - say 10-20% per year or something. Traders look to simply make a good living from trading. For example, if one of our traders puts up $20K and makes $200,000 per year trading (as many do) he really getting a 200% ROI? Of course not...he is being rewarded for his knowledge, skill, labor hours, etc. (And the fact that he may be using a $million or more of our money to trade with) this case, his $$ is just a tool.

    Hope this helps,
