i was reading the "training section" in ET, and he said: "If you want to have some fun, look at the performance of a successful market expert, one who is known for his or her market predictions and trading expertise. You will find that their performance numbers really arenât any better than an average trading strategy. The percentage of profitable trades, the return on the account, average profit to average loss, number of losing trades in a rowâ¦all of these trading parameters are within the average trading strategy performance parameters" so what im woundering is... if the experts arent all that better than the average, why do sum traders make BIG money, and sum are close to bankrupt ?? Does it depend on the firm they work for or something ??
