When it comes to becoming the best in anything you do and declaring this as fact, you must be able to prove it. When you can prove your abilities, when you can display your true talent for the world to see there is no disputing it. As a trader in the stock market, you have one thing to display your talent, and that is your win ratio. As a professional athlete, it is just as easy to consider their talent by viewing their performance stats.
With that in mind, lets take a quick look at the performance of some of the best professional athletes in the world and see exactly what it takes and why they are considered to be the best...
Michael Jordan is undoubtedly one of the best NBA players in history, as well as an incredible business person. His net-worth is expected to be in the billion dollar range. Throughout his career as an NBA player, Michael Jordan successfully sunk 49.7% of all of his attempts to make a basket. That essentially means, for every 1000 jump shots, he got nearly half in the hoop. To be one of the most prestigious ball players in the history of the NBA, that does not sound like an incredible number, however, it all comes down to the game and he played it well, very well. Michael Jordan knew what it took to be the best player in the game and he consistently practiced and implemented his game plan. He did not have to shoot double the amount of shots, he simply had to make the most out of the shots he took. His talent and ability to play the game made him one of the best players in the history of the NBA.
When considering Peyton Manning's most noted statistic, his passes completed percentage, he has earned a 65.5% completion rate. This means that, much like Michael Jordan, he has successfully completed just over half of all throws he has made. While that completion rate may not sound so spectacular, its the precision that counts and 65.5% completed passes was all that was needed to win numerous championships. Some players may have thrown more or less than Manning, however, their completion may not be as good - its all about the right throw, not the most thrown.
The next professional athlete is regarded by many as one of the greatest players in baseball history, Mickey Mantle. Mantle was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974, his ability to hit for both average and power, especially tape-measure home runs is something that few have compared to till this day.
With his incredible talent Mickey Mantle's batting average was 298%. This means that out of the 100% of times he stepped up to the plate, he hit the ball 29.9% of the time. Now, just like Michael Jordan and Peyton Manning, 29.9% does not sound like a spectacular win rate. However, that is what it took to make Mickey Mantle one of the best players in the history of Major League Baseball.
Now lets compare the performance of those three incredible professional athletes, to the Chief Market Strategists, and Pro Traders of InTheMoneyStocks, Gareth Soloway and Nick Santiago...
