    What would you say are the biggest differences between professional and private investors?

  3. Subscribed and found your site to be of good insight. The difference between professional and private investor; the majority of private investors just do not have the time to devote to research or learning many different trading strategies.

    As a professional investor/broker/investment banker, 10 hrs a day with a tele on bloomberg and another on cnbc, four computer monitors in front of my desk which is covered in research reports and private placement memorandums,three phones and a 40 oz coffee .

    Then of course lets take into account that clients money is on the line as well as your own, and having to answer 50-100 emails every morning.

    Dealing with the mistakes of sales assistants and staff , marketing to bring in new clients , the list goes on….

    I have done this for 22 yrs every day .

    You are doing great Cautious Bull, Keep it up your track record looks great.
