Is anyone become billionaire like Warren Buffett by trading but not investing ? If nobody then investing only wins

Undoubtedly investors. All big bulls are long term investors. Countless examples from india like jhunjhunwala, mr biyani, mr damani, porrinju etc etc.
Countless global investors & unbeatable warren buffet. He earns per hour millions of dollars through dividends!
Hardly any successful traders you see. They are all investors.

Its like a race between a rabbit & a tortoise. Rabbit maybe compared as a trader & slow moving tortoise is like investor.

Tortoise wins the race in the end.

90% investors make money & 90% traders lose money.

If u will go deep acquiring knowledge about investing for long term with benefits like tax free income & regular dividends (taxable), doing fundamental analysis, studying companies, etc etc. You will forget or quit day trading or may trade very less times.

P.S. , Traders work for money by doing hardwork. But investors do smart work & money works for them!


Lets Not talk about the Big Investors.
It’s Not 1995 or 2000.

It’s 2017 and Even a very small news about any stock effect very much on the value as well as price of the Stock.

Now, The market is not fair like it used to be earlier and you will Invest some amount and get return like MRF.

There are competitors in the market, Brand value is everything Nowadays. Profits Margins have decrease in market due to competitors.
Now, People have more options.


  1. JIO in Telecommunications.
  2. Patanjali in FMCG.

I still remembered When I knew only 1 Tyre Brand That is MRF now, I have Option of CEAT, Apollo and more…

Market is all about what we are surrounded by and the things which effects our day to day lifestyle.

In Today’s World you can’t get sure shot return from your Stock (You will get dividend for sure)
Because The meaning of long term have changed.

If A person is a Investor as well as He knows Trading. He will get best out of the market in Today’s World.

Investor + Trader = Best Result.

What is your advice to 9-5 job going people on trading?

It’s Very difficult to trade while someone is doing Job.

But, If You have love for something you make time for it but this doesn’t apply for Intraday Traders. Atleast you Need Minimum 1 hour For Intraday.

Many Times I have booked Profit In Just Opening Of Market from 9:15 to 10:00 AM and I don’t take any trade after that.

Many Times without covering the market from Opening I have taken Trades Directly at 2:45 PM to 3:15 PM and Have Booked good profit.

If You have Love for something as well as knowledge you can make money anytime in market.
All you need is skills.

One more thing If anyone will do Intraday 5 days a week He will lose some part of Profit maybe possible Loss all the Profits.
I Don’t trade Everyday.

( I am a student and 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM my college Timings )


If a stock’s previous close was 500 and the close today is 500 as well, then the investor does not make any money. But a trader can make money by speculating catching the intraday movement. If the stock opens gap up tomorrow, then the investor makes money but the intraday equity trader does not get to catch this upmove unless he holds a long future carry position.
So the ideal answer to your question is the person who makes more money in this market is the one who is a trader + investor.
