  • The Great Divide - Traders Versus Investors [View article]
    "Those who are trading every day have a strong negative predisposition."

    In my day traders were told (by their bosses) not to marry their positions...this
    promoted this mindset. Also in large part I found most traders woefully ignorant
    about the source of the economic numbers as well as the incredible noise created by watching
    only the month to month changes...which promoted this distrust.
