The million dollar question is, Whether intraday trading is a gambling or business? In this article, let’s discuss about intraday trading is weather gambling or business. Most of the conservative people in two tier cities believe and narrate trading in stock or share markets as gambling. Even to such extent an women thinks not to marry a stock trader particularly in India. As people believe trading is a risk and speculation business.
But, I personally completely disagree with the view. First, to start with a famous quote by legendary investor Warren Buffet, “Risk comes from not knowing, what you are doing”.

The myth here with people is, while pursuing and engineering course one would spend 4 years in graduation. Then pursue a specialization course for at-least 6 months to 1 year to land into a job. But in trading business its very easy particularly now-a-days thanks to technology. Just open a demat or a trading account add money via mobile app and start trading. Then after some losses watch some youtube videos on trading and then come back again. Further losses leads to blaming on markets/advisers/luck and saying trading is a gambling.
Thus, the blaming mentality of traders after they lose has become a myth to believe trading is a gambling. The amateur traders don’t have a proper trading plan, right mentor to learn and most even don’t read. Just collect easy information of print media and believe one can successful in trading.
