Trading in general could probably be justifiably compared to casino poker, but not, for example, roulette. It depends on what you mean by trading. If you mean going in and out with no idea what your buying and doing it intra-day or in a very short period of time I think there is almost no difference.

Actually I believe there is a difference. If you go in and out in casino with no idea what you're doing, I'd say you've got more chances to win that doing the same on market

I wouldn't exactly make resemblance to gambling its advertising point Most traders generally do what they do because they like an idea of controlling their money, which in gambling it's not the easiest thing to do.

Trading is an art based on calculations and analysis, it can't be gambling unless or otherwise mixed up with traders emotions like greed and overtrading etc.

Well, let's be honest - it might be gambling as much as a trader considers it as one and approaches it correspondingly

Trading gambling speculation........all semantics guys and will mean different things to different people .......use a dictionary if you want the closest thing to objective definitions

Risk is the key to identifying if you are deemed to be recklessly gambling on an outcome or making a calculated investment based on logical and data evidenced historic results .....

One mans gamble is another mans investment

And let's be honest in the end it's all about money in the bank......right ???

So I'll take money in the bank.......be it called gambling , investing , trading ......
