Can golf? Can tennis?

Not the way most people play it.

Well, there maybe exceptions but I am yet to see a day-trader being consistently profitable for at-least, say, 5-years. In tennis or golf the ratio of professionals versus wannabes is 1:10000. That means for every tennis player making money from playing championships there are 10000 others who don't make any money from it. I am talking about Day-Trading as a means of earning a livelihood.
