there's another point one could argue

the original question is about "retail" traders and not necessarily about small traders. I consider $100,000 cash equity still as retail... however I think there is a slight twist. I think money is money. There is no smart money just because it's an institution..hf..prop etc. Likewise it is baseless to assume just coz a firm, individual,etc is trading a smaller size or money value that they're dumb money.

As in life's various enterprenurial vocations it is the job of the enterpreneur to take $ and put into his,her pocket. Same with trading. Ones who cannot do this may not have much success.

Again my very small mind rambling away on a sunny Sunday...and I do not know much.
