Why Most Traders Suck
Most day traders are really bad and should consider strategies to automate their investments, says Sebastian Ganjali, head of strategy at trading platform Kryll, in a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.
Lacking: Ganjali says that traders need to understand risk management, how to form profitable trading strategies, and have good discipline in order to be successful.
Numbers: 70% to 90% of day traders lose money, according to Ganjali.
Current: In the face of a tough market this year, Ganjali said that veteran traders will perform better than novice traders because they’ve been through downturns before.
Final Thoughts: What advice does Ganjali offer new day traders? Find out by listening to a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.

Goldman Sachs Eyes Celsius Network Assets
Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) is trying to raise $2 billion from investors in order to acquire distressed assets from cryptocurrency lender Celsius Network, according to a report on Friday.
Details: According to the report from CoinDesk, Goldman Sachs is seeking to buy the assets from Celsius, such as crypto, at a discount and reached out to crypto funds to get help.
Background: It’s been a rough few weeks for Celsius. The crypto lender froze withdrawals in mid-June. The company is also preparing for a potential bankruptcy, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Bigger Picture: Most crypto prices stabilized over the weekend. In the past few months, most prices have plummeted.
Final Thoughts: Crypto’s recent fall has been well-documented. Goldman Sachs is obviously trying to grab some of Celsius’ assets if there is a bankruptcy. Goldman Sachs’ stock is down 23% this year, so the big bank wants to turn its year around.
JPMorgan Slips, Layoffs Off Hundreds
As one of the leading financial institutions on Wall Street, JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) has suffered like the other banking stocks this year.
Numbers: Shares of JPMorgan are down 27% this year. The stock went up 24% the previous year.
Recent Development: JPMorgan recently laid off hundreds of employees from its home-lending business, which shows that the housing sector can be problematic right now.
Final Thoughts: JPMorgan reports earnings on July 14.
