No, older is better, a trader should mentor under a senior. Look at all the richest men in the world, all older. even John paulson, the guy who made a larger win than soros, he's older.

I also think it depends on the person, I have seen 30yr olds burnt out with no fire and I have seen 65yr old guys with more fire than 20 yr olds.

At 53 an investor is wiser. For example, wise enough to let the math whizzkids do all the hard calculations for him and get on with the task of making money. Also experienced enough to know when he's shaking hands with a charlatan junior mining CEO and when he's talking to a guy with the shareholders' interests at heart.

Trust a 27yo with my money? No way, not even the next Albert E.
