if you are just trading randomly and not sure of what you are doing then yes, Trading stocks and currencies "forex" can be easily gambling if you are not doing it on clear analysis.

Yeah, people thinks trading is just throwing your bitcoins into short or long and go for hail mary. They treat trading as gambling with 50/50 chance of winning. But if they just go into analysis and read chart or watch news, they can easily predict where the price of a certain commodities will go. And trading is not a gamble anymore because you have a clear insight and more probable to succeed than lose.

Hey people,

I've always been a huge gambler. I like creating useless schemes (as we all know bank always win ^^) and betting whole nights long in order to find THE right way of betting.
But I need change, I can't bet over and over on the same game cause after I see that nothing can be done to change the odds, I'm bored.

So I thought a bit about trading and I started not so long ago. and it feels a bit like a betting game without knowing the odds and with an infinity of parameters!

Does anyone else takes trading as a gambling game? Smiley

yes i think that trading is gambling, i think that everything that have less that 100% chance to get money is gambling,

because you aren't sure if you will get money or lose, that it main thing for all kinds of gambling,  and there even people that are addicted to trading

there are many different between them in trading studying the coin technology , the order book and the hype around with selling in the right time will help to get a little profit but gambling needs luck only .

No ways is trading like gambling. There is way more luck in gambling. Trading will make alot of money if you understand a few things about the market, just look at real estate for example, you telling me that's luck only ? But trading will probably be slower then gambling but safer.

not all gambling depends on luck, some just like sports betting you need to study their skills and compare them.
If it involves money, then it's likely to be gambling in some ways.

yeah if you don't know about it and the knowledge when trading and based only on instinct or feeling to win. I could call you are gambling

No..trading and gambling are two different things although both of them required luck to gain some profit but in trading most of the time you used analytic skill to determine whether you are hoing to hold, to sell or to purchase

I think it depends on how you do it.
If you trade based on news and analysis than it's not as much gambling as if you trade based on luck. But in that case I wouldn't even call it trading.

I think trading is same as gambling. You also predict for trading and you want your trade the price increase, same as gambling you also predict and want your bet win.

yes  i think that it is gambling, i think that lots of people thinks like this, it have huge risk, and everything that have risk is gambling, because you're not sure if you will get money or you will lose, when you trade you also have to be careful

trading only takes a little luck. not the same as gambling so if you do a trade with a random without knowledge and skill. Of course you will lose. because this is not gambling

well it is gambling and it's not i think, you can win lots of money but also you can lose them, you aren't 100% sure that you will get money so it have risk

but if you sell something, you aren't sure if you will get money too, so it could be considered as gambling too but it's not

No of course not. Trading and gambling are two different things. With trading you trade something to get something else of the same value. In this situation you can't lose.
With gambling you are taking a risk buy putting in money in other to make more money, but you are not 100% sure if you will make money.

I guess trading is gambling even if you think you have some sort of expertise at it. Unless you're an absolute whale you can't control what the market does.

Correct. Trading is not exactly is same as gambling because in gambling one can lose or make money instantly but in trading it is not possible. If any one want to make money from trading than one should wait for the investments to grow and some time it may take quite a lot of time. Gambling is just for fun and not for making money out of it.

and also i want to add that when you lose in gambling, you are losing to the house which means the house takes your money and gets richer. but in trading the house (exchanger) doesn't care you lose or not they are taking their fee. and you lose to another trader buying/selling to your orders.

I think trading can be regarded as a gamble. if you guess the price goes up or down for a short time or commonly called binary trading. I think it can be called as gambling and trading
