    I knew 2 day traders. One was doing well, bought a new house in Arizona city and 2 new cadys. Developed a program to automatic work for him, came to JB’s one day and by the time he got home he was broke and was a greeter at Kmart. #2 retired and was doing so well he retired and was giving classes…he shortly went back to work.

    I’d prefer the classic day-trading climax to the movie TRADING PLACES.

    I got nothing. Day trading is just another way for people with money to try and make more money without losing it until it’s all gone.

    Yah. Got VERY lucky, got out and invested in the “regular” way with a fiduciary and such and making it work. Like gambling in a casino, you have to know your limits, be willing to lose the whole bet and know when to quit. You have to do your research and make good judgements of which company to bet on and when to go in and when to pull out. Too many let greed take over and even though they hit their targets they all of a sudden want more and before you know they have lost it all. Make enough so you are always playing with the house’s money.

    I know several people who gambled away their inheritances by day trading. Some day there will laws to protect “outsider trading”. :(
