For most it is not a business because they go broke according to studies. For me it is a hobby. I do so so. Make money, lose money. Hard anymore with the market being so rigged by the hedge funds and the naked shorting. But don't worry, Obama will stop all that.
great question....i gave you a like.... my ex wife didn't like it....for me it's not a legitimate business or hobby..It used to be when the market was function better. For the last 5 years if just parked money in investment that i can hold a while....any trading i've done has mostly been just gambling.
