Pick a side and fight.
Listen kid, all the investments "strategies" of the past are like dinosaurs right now dying out after the impact of the crypto currency meteorite. They might have beat the index, big fucking deal a broken clock is right twice a day, but they didn't recreate the entire market like the one and only ethereum is doing. Retards probably didn't get in on the financial revolution early and now they're trying to justify their broken investment "strategies". Good luck trying to get in on the ground floor of the future now idiots
Time, resources, and ability are important. However, just like poker, you'll never get anywhere if you aren't disciplined.
Most active investors are mostly trying to make a quick buck on the news. They end up doing poorly.
Proper analysis takes time, and a plan to execute when shit goes down.
For example, if you are betting on FB shitting the bed, you need to use proper hedging to balance your risk.
Most traders get fucked because they try to get big gains instead of little wins. This is why you need a large sum of capital to actually be successful.
