Real trading is most definitely not gambling. Most real traders won't initiate a trade unless the odds are heavily in their favor. In gambling, the odds are in the house's favor. Can't speak for others, but 97 to 98% of the work in my trades now is done by computer. So, unless you believe people get some sort of gambling rush from watching a computer mechanically execute trading code with very little human involvement, I can't see where your argument comes from.
