Went to the Melbourne casino tonight. Wandered all around it. As usual, I left the casino with the same amount of money that I walked in with.

I find it really hard to throw away money in the casinos, because I just struggle to see the odds as worth the effort....and I've looked at it all.

But so many people looking for a quick buck. The poker tables were packed. At least poker gives you a chance, but so much effort for what?

The roulette tables were packed... might as well throw money away.

It again gave me a sense of perspective. I am lucky to understand how to trade markets.
The casinos play with tens, hundreds, thousands, even. But in the markets I trade with millions.
I don't always win, but I win more than I lose...and the odds are so much better than a casino.
