I started a what does it take to make it big (as a trader) thread and Efficient Market Theory pretty much won on that thread. So now i want to know what does it take to make it big (as a vendor). Now I know vendors are universally despised on ET - i suppose because a lot of ETers got scammed by them - as anyone deserves to be if you're looking for the Holy Grail. But the bottom line is that vendors bank. Just look at: LBR - market wizard turned vendor, Dan Zanger - world record holder, and there are many other lessor known guys that pull in 7 figures from vending. I remember seeing Martin Zweig's NYC penthouse being put up for like 80 mill on the forbes site. Zweig has to be the richest vendor ever. The kinds of vendors: - Chat room operators. - Newletter guys. - Signal sellers. - Mentor/Couches.
