Thousand random traders

If you were to look at one thousand random traders and, in that group of one thousand, you had a large number of automated systems traders along with a good number of discretionary traders, what you would see is that there is a larger percentage of profitable traders who are using automated systems. However, there’s a big caveat here. The bigger winners are in the discretionary camp. In other words, it’s harder to become a successful discretionary trader, but once somebody does, they tend to outperform the automated system traders. – Andrew Menaker
