A comment was made on another thread that sparked this question in my mind. What is an investor? What is the difference between an investor and a trader? Is it time frame? Is a person using the weekly chart not a trader, but the person using a minute chart is? Does it have to do with fundamentals to the exclusion of technical analysis? Do investors have no plan while traders do? Are investors those who have plans but don't follow them as was suggested in another thread, but traders both have a plan and follow it? I dare say then, given the immediately preceding qualifier as purported, there are a lot of investors on this board!
