RE: Any options traders here?
You guys who are into trading,

What do you say to the idea that it's a fools game? I've heard people say it's no better than gambling, i.e. streaks of income over a few months arent true skill but just natural statistical variation, and in the long term you lose out? What do you guys in-the-know reckon?

There are obviously a LOT of products and info out there on it all ... does any of it work? So much of it feels similar to Internet Marketing products - e.g. selling the dream, telling you how to do something they havent done themselves. True or not?

I've heard it said that you're competing against massive investment banks /hedge funds employing hundreds of PhD's and even they are lucky to do better than 15% ROI in a year.

So how is it that the little guy can go up against them and make a living?
