A complete waste of time in which people attempt to make money out of nothing in a sort of modern day alchemy.

One of the few jobs in the world where nothing is created or contributed to the world yet people think you have to be smart to do it.
Buying 1 currency "vis-a-vis" another then selling it later hoping to make a gain - buit invariably actually losing more than 50% of the time which one would think is impossible.
