If you walked into a casino and were told that on the left, everybody can leave the table a winner, and on the right, somebody always has to lose and often nobody wins but the dealer, you'd be crazy to go the right, correct? Then why do traders trade futures and options, which are zero-sum markets? The same goes for shorting, too. As I look back on my trading, I've always made money going long . . . and always lost money on shorts and options. (Never bothered with futures. Not quite sure what they are, actually). If Wall Street is a casino, then pick the right table . . . Am I right or am I right?
