Would someone please define this?

Discussion in 'Trading' started by learner2007, Jan 13, 2008.

  1. A non-native English speaker asked me the meaning
    of 'To beat the market'. I haven't spoken English or
    lived in an English speaking environment for so long
    now that I couldn't be sure of its meaning.

    Would it be,

    1. To make money trading year after year.
    2. To outperform a market average.
    3. To make money on all trades(impossible, I know).
    4. To make money on the majority of your trades.
    5. None of the above

    Thank you for your time helping me with this,

  3. Yes it's is number 2 and I think of "beating the market" as having a one year time span at least.
