Time is everything if you are a trader.
Investing, period, is all about timing (and fees). We turn our money over to people who day trade; the only difference is, they control the market (always have). They are the market makers. The mechanism of price discovery. This goes way back to they guys screaming in the pits.
While I don't puke over the investing game plan the hucksters teach us (a slow death) the ROI is exponentially better if you play volatility.
At the end of the day it doesn't matter what goes on; prices go up, prices go down. Chart porn. Money is made no matter the direction.
Think about that. Market take a **** and people get rich. Look at the dot com bust, then the 08-09 credit bubble explosion. More people got rich.
How can people make a filthy (quoting Rod Allen) amount of money when the entire ****house is blowing up? They do, it's legal, and that's actually a good thing. But that is another topic.
I will be dead before fossil fuel is replaced by 90 percent renewable (but I'm old). So will everybody else.
