For me, well they ought to have. They should be able to realistically gauge probability with incomplete information and they should be comfortable with ensuring they take a known risk.

Then again, how many gamblers are profitable?

There’s one thing gamblers and traders have in common: wanting to make money lol. Now if gamblers have an edge in trading, I’m not sure. Depends on how good of a gambler they are!


Gambling and forex trading are two very different activities, and it is not necessarily true that people who gamble have an edge in forex trading.

I think they have, well it all depends on their way of doing a thing. Risks are anyway involved.

All I know according to my experience is that gambling is never going to benefit you in the long run.

People who take forex trading as a gamble will not be able to sustain the marketplace. This is not some wild prediction and tinker tailor soldier spy game.
