I actually try not to have thoughts about things like that. I agree with what one of the people in the book said:

"Focus on things which are knowable - that is, things where research can plausibly give you superior insight - for example, the microeconomic advantages of a particular company. Ignore things which are not knowable, for example, general macroeconomic predictions." (page 95)

Any idea on when Cellcast are releasing their full year numbers? I have emailed Andrew Wilson but no response yet. Also any ideas on how Cellcast Asia are trading? I keep picking up a few shares here and there at around 3.8p. Hoping for some good results. Best wishes. Doc

There are so many so called full-time traders. But those who are really good at (mostly luck) would just hire a writer and make loads of money off of it.

Hi Guy,

Enjoyed the book. Did you deliberately concentrate on equity traders/investors? And do you thing this reflects the majority of professional private traders out there? I ask because I've compounded my capital at over 20% pa over the last 12 years, on a very amateur basis, betting on trends in commodities, fx, bonds, stock indexes etc. It would be surprising if there weren't more doing the same.

Tom.

I didn't deliberately concentrate on equity traders, but it's true there was an availability heuristic: I know lots of equity traders, and no commodity traders. I don't know how representative this is of the global population of UK private traders.
