Trading ,gambling and the bible

I quote"Trading is gambling, and I'm profiting from other peoples misery, furthermore my trading serves no useful fuction to society. Every single christian who trades is equally guilty."

I unquote


Jeez i'm not a christian first of all.Trading is not gamblimg.does every single trade make money.ofcourse not that is not the idea the idea is to have 75 or 80% winning trades to make good money.If 100% of trades were winning trades you'l make a fortune in a day because then your risk 100% of your capital.It is a sience and math

No use to society not quite we add money to the world.We add to brokers profit those brokers employ people who then feed themselves.Every forex broker every stock excange out there makes money from speculators and in turn they pay the people who work for them.And the money that the brokers pocket after their expenses is probably reinversted somehow but that money has to go somewhere.What about cnbc who spends hours talking about the financail markets on world television.All those tv people get's piad.

And what about the print media.And this not a sinle country but the entire world.There are a lot of people who's work is dirrectly link to us speculators. .Everybody here loves the market and know the risk and really don't want nor need your preaching.

Its what you do with the money you earn that matters IMHO. I am not sure if the multiplier effect from our activity would amount to anything greater than that of an ordinary gambler .... i.e. they would support the casino staff, boost the local economy in that way etc .

At the end of the day we do not producing anything new.

There really is no need, I only require royalties for providing material of value. If anything I should be paying sharky for the LULZ and entertainment this site provides.

I was simply pointing out to yet another hypocritical christian type the hypocrisy in his behavior

It is strange, to me, how some folk seem to have to justify the way they make (or lose) their money. It's not as if we care what religion, or non-religion they belong to. Most of them are telling us pork pies, anyway.

Ho Ho Ho ! I'm a Christian! Ho Ho Ho! I don't believe a word of it!

Good on the lot of you.
