Recently found an article talking about the stock market being a zero sum game. I.e. if someone profits from a stock, it would mean that someone else is losing money.
What was said in this article was actually quite simple. However I finally got some idea what people mean when they always say 'you should trade with a style that is suitable for you'.
Here are is the list of different 'positive trading style'. By positive, it means that people who trade with the expectation of making a profit. ( Yes, there are styles where the people do not have the intention to make a profit,but I will not list them here. If you would like to find out more, here is the link to the article. )
After seeing this table, what kind of style do you think you belong to?

Link to the article can be found here ( taken from turtletrade.com , it is essentially a style of trading too)
