Does predatory activity happen in the market all the time? Does a predatory mindset help in trading? I think that adapting a mentality of being ruthless, predatory, opportunistic and stalking your "prey" may help some people be more successful at trading. I get the impression that some traders take on this mentality, and this point of view as a strategy to put themselves into a mental state that helps them to be more objective and disciplined in their trading. I'm not saying it doesn't work. And I'm not saying that I wouldn't, sort of, engage in those things myself when trading. I guess I would practice opportunistic and "predatory" strategies in the sense that it will make a profit. Is this view of trading good in the long term? Can it affect your life outside of trading? Is it morally right or wrong? Personally, I have a mixture of feelings about the whole investment industry, how it works, who it benefits, and what the implications are for the predators and the victims. But let's hear what you have to say.
