The stock markets definitely work on the phrase “survival of the fittest” - these are the people who learn all the time and trade intelligently, manage their risk and improvise their strategies. You should definitely work on this if you want to trade consistently well in the market. If you feel weak while trading, someone else is going to take your money from you. Learn to stay profitable, and you could certainly use a portion of your profits to help orphanages, children with special needs etc. The opportunities are endless.
Like Nithin always says and rightly so, “The markets are the toughest place to make easy money”. It requires intelligence, skill, emotional control and so much more, it’s not about numbers going up or down. So if you do manage to stay profitable as a trader and you have time on your hands, there are a lot of things you can do to help the society.
