Not All Who Wander Are Lost...
...But There Are Those Who Definitely Are...
There are definitely those that understand and make use of derivatives to profit, in a big way.
Used appropriately, derivatives are helpful to hedge certain risks.
To profit from them is a whole different ball game, and not everyone may be able to handle them.
Over time, the market has this uncanny ability to humble us, especially so for the over confident ones.
Those who think they know everything, will learn nothing.
Investing is a never-ending journey, every day is a new day to learn something new, and that's the fun part.
Don't be a know-it-all, even beyond investing.
As always, "Come for the laughs, stay for the fun times".
