Investing without knowledge is gambling.

Trading with knowledge is not gambling.

To be successful in any profession requires time, dedication, education and training. As one becomes better in their profession, they get better rewarded. Your expectations should be similar for trading as a profession that provides you with a living.

(PS buy and hold doesn't count as trading, thought I'd pre-empt that)

A five month track record (track record in the loosest possible terms), and he's about to "start" selling his wisdom and experience, you really couldn't write it!

Doesn't he do like 1 trade a month aswell? I think even if he was trading 10 times a day i wouldn't call it a track record.
