In this article the author discusses the return of day traders who make impulsive decisions and reckless investments in Great Britain. He muses on the massive market returns of some investments in just a period of three months which use a diversified non-traditional approach on investments. The author believes that three months is an irrelevant timeframe to gauge investment outcomes nor would it become an indicator that investors should already stand by a fund.
