The vast majority of retail trading accounts will not be profitable. Frequency, deposit, and a number of other factors are likely demonstrable across a data base like @artemiso has. I'm sure a guy like artemiso has looked at the data and executes a plan that gives the greatest edge in business.

Some of the responses open up the question in interesting ways.

I stand by my initial comments, but perhaps could have show better tendencies.
