First off, I would like to apologize cause I just realized that I came off kind of troll-ish. Not my intention.

Secondly, I would always present myself as a trader and educator. when someone presents their misconception of a trader I would educate them by briefly explaining, "a gambler risks money without knowing the probability of losing the money at risk and is often over leveraged". "A trader risks money, knowing the probability of winning is in their favor." Then mention, that you happen to be a Master Of Probability! Then sit back and watch as he/she tries to consume the lesson bestowed upon them.

Yeah Ive tried that but I just dont have the energy for it anymore. Its actually quite fun hinting that Im thinking of getting into forex, and then sitting back and listening to everyone's ideas strategies and opinions. Best to do this in a group setting when you can sit back and be anonymous rather than a one on one tidal wave of trading analysis from some frenzied know it all
