Why are some people making such a large profit out of nothing while they fail to understand the rules of the game? In this podcast, I’m going to talk about what it means to be an ethical trader; a person who has an ethical sense of the game that others don’t usually understand. I discuss what makes it a “trade;” an active commitment to being a trader that has consequences; the process of creating an accurate market analysis in order to trade at a fair price; the principles of integrity that all traders must keep within himself or herself; and the idea of learning from your mistakes.
