Is it true that day trading is no better than gambling?

Hi Jennifer,

Glad to see that we have a professional gambler among us. I think professional gamblers and traders share a lot of similarities in that they take a methodical approach to their activities, which is what makes them pros. I'm sure you cannot compare your approach with that of a regular punter who visits Vegas once a year and places some bets hoping to win. The same is true of professional traders who approach the markets with a balanced approach searching for opportunities that align with their defined edge. You can check out our sister website, www.askgamblers.com where we cater to both professional and amateur gamblers.
