I don't see anything about dividends in that definition, maybe I need to put more time into my studies of this vocation.
As I said, it's my personal view of the matter. I see myself as a trader, I buy PMs to resell them at some point down the road. A financial return and a profit are the same, depends if you see it with a mercantile eye or an investor point of view. I see a financial return as interests or dividends but that is my own point of view.

When I think trader, I automatically think day trader king of the flips. A trader who doesn't look toward dividends just pure profiteers.

Trading for quick ca$h may work for some or for a while but eventually you end up with a very high dca, say in the 40's when the BIG one hits and it drops to say the 20's or lower taking all the quick profits that you thought you made and reinvested too with it; no thanks I'm content sitting on my dca of just over $5 an Oz and sleeping well every nite.

You must be happy there are traders though, your silver would never go up 30% in a year without people taking risks.

You sound like everyone else I know. I graduated college in 1996 and have only taken two vacations (one of them by force)

I'm a simple guy. I prefer the fiat instead.

I consider stack increases achieved through GSR swaps to be dividends.

Or selling privately with a premium added on is like a dividend of sorts.
