Famous investing quotations (24) – Wall Street Maxims

“The bigger you are, the harder to trade.”
(New York Times, 1900)
In other words, when you trade with large amounts you have two big effects:
– first of all you trade with large amounts of money or securities and you can influence too much the price, in the opposite of the desired direction;
– secondly, the fear factor increases – the more you trade, the more you can loose and the more risk averse you become.
