It gets very hard to make the same trade, over and over again, for years.
There is a way to get around diminishing returns. Take bigger trades.
While in this sense, I’m not only talking about trades, I do believe that this makes a lot of sense considering what this all basically means you have to do.
If you make bets in more demanding trading vehicles, you;
1: Reduce the number of trades you have to make meaning that you don’t have to stretch yourself as much as you’d have to if you placed a bunch of smaller bets.
2: While spreading your money out through a bunch of small trading vehicles may be fun and all, it isn’t the best if you want growth. Why place 10 bets of 1000$ that will yield 5% when you can place one bet of 10000$ that will yield 5%.
While the return in the second example may be the same you wouldn’t have to worry about one of those bets falling through. Mainly, because you placed a single bet of 10000.
One thing you would have to worry about is placing that bet and it falling through. That’s the risk you’re willing to take though.
Also, I’m not talking about “trading”.
While writing this, I realized that my idea is flawed. It does have some validity though.
