I do enjoy watching these type of shows, as they drill down to individuals, all trying to compete against each other.
90% of retail (home) traders fail .. but, the ones that make the promised land, have a great lifestyle, so, sure, lots want to try.
Its a bit odd, that people want to try and win in a zero sum game .. but, thats our financial system.
I dont mind the hedge fund type approach, of the guys from Birmingham .. just hope safeguards are in place etc, so that clients funds are protected.
Sports markets, are not yet, quite big enough to offer Sports Hedge funds, on maybe more sports than Soccer. Lets hope, the global markets get steadily bigger, so that other sports can be traded.
