Money is good, the richest people in the world are also some of the nicest.
Bill gates, Warren Buffet.
Hmmm, Quite a profound statement... Have you spoken to them personally to know how nice they really are.
It's pretty easy to give philanthropically (and be Nice) when you have a ton of money and will still have a ton of money after giving some away. However, It's much harder and much nicer be charitable, when you don't really have much. IE: buy someone else lunch, when you know you can't afford to buy your own.
But, I digress, that really isn't the topic at hand.
Nothing wrong with Day trading, but I will have to agree with KPJ... The Market is run by the Big Fish, not the average Joe Investor. If by some chance, you can stay a step ahead of the Big Fish, you can make a lot of money. But, beware, you're small investments are not changing the value of the Stocks, their BIG investments are. Often times, they create their own excitement and create a false demand, only so that they can unload their crappy investments to the little guy.
