I think not. Otherwise you wouldn't have shared your experience and posited the question. my thanks, btw.

I have the same experience you do. I don't want to talk about trading with others who only have an average understanding of it, but when I encounter another trader, I welcome and encourage engagement. I'd estimate that half of the general public doesn't know that markets are bi-directionally profitable, but they know prices are bi-directional. "oh, yeah, selling short, I've heard of that. But that's immoral..." - the OL.

You've made yourself an expert in a particular discipline and in the process, made yourself an outsider to the larger social group. There's a social price to expertise.

I still get calls or texts from family members when they see the s&p down 2% or the dow down a ton... when in reality I make most of my money on those momentum plays...... some people will never get it
