Are we totally insane?
As private traders, every day when we open a new trade in the market, we battle against the big boys and against intelligent robots. The ones have the money and the power to move the market, the others are quicker than we ever could be. And on top of it all, there could be a broker at the end of the chain who could play against us and most of us would not even recognize it. From this perspective, the only conclusion that can be reached is – YES. We are!
Same way as if we´d try to win a fight with bludgeons against an army with high-tech equipment. But this is what 99% of us try to do. And it´s not a secret that almost the same percentage of traders fail. Of course, it´s not only about the equipment, but the right gear increases chances at least significantly.
