I’ve been wondering about share trading for a while as an investment opportunity, and I was reading up on it on a few sites, where I found this quote:
Trading is a zero-sum game. For every winner, there is a loser. What’s the difference between winners and losers? Smarts and strategy. For every loser in the NASDAQ implosion there was a winner. Does this mean that there are traders with neither strategy nor smarts actively losing, effectively shifting their funds to the winners, armed with strategy and smarts? Yes, absolutely.
Puts it pretty well - for every share trading winner, there’s a loser. Just try not to be the loser all the time and you’ll be alright!
