Let me explain
Here is a group of successful non traders . They were programmers in IT companies and heres what they are doing
I think consistently profitable startups would be eligible for funding like above.
Now lets consider top students from our country in technology space IITians, RECs and other top institutes in cities or MBAs from top colleges the top 1% of students. They get placed in 2 years time they are drawing 40-45 lacs. They are in their 20s at this time. An average joe after working 10 - 15 years in IT companies goes to 20 - 25 lacs in their late 30s.
Now lets take a trader top 1% beating fd consistently starting with decent savings he has had and is making lets say 8- 10 lacs. After tax and expenses he will be adding 2 lacs to his size. May be after adding 2 lacs compounding year after year how much time would it take for him to become at par with the top 1%. He may be an average joe but he actually belongs to the top1%.
So how soon will he be able to catch up with the others.
And lastly we have pr sundar who has done well as a trader. A good video from him
.....traders in general may not be held in high regards because very few are profitable but consistantly profitable traders are always held in high esteem because they make money consistantly and it does not remain hidden for long time in the society......
