Can Automated Trading really create happiness? Can money make us happy?
Sorry to say it, but I think the answer to both is no. Yes, Automated Trading can help us do better in life, and make it possible to achieve financial freedom sooner. And, I don’t know if more money will really make anyone happier.
Blasphemy? Definitely for the gambling industry. And maybe even for the investing industry, it seems. But it’s true. More money will not make people happier. Most lottery winners are poorer 5 years after they get their big win. And more miserable as well. Don’t believe me? Read about the lottery and the guy who won the biggest jackpot in history.
Because more money will not make us anything different than what we are now. If we are not happy now, more money will not make us more happy. It only makes us more of what we already are. If we are dissatisfied with our life, more money will make us more dissatisfied. If we are drinking too much now, more money will only help us drink more.
So how will Automated Trading help us?
