Are you a serious trader?

What is a serious trader? A serious trader is one who does their own thinking, one who questions all the information presented by others, and who tests and sees things for themselves. A serious trader is one who understands that to gain an advantage in the competitive game of trading they cannot be thinking or doing what everybody else is. To stay ahead of the curve, the serious trader needs to analyze information from a different angle and respond faster than others to a change in events.
