Abstract: The present study investigated the relationship between engaging in day trading and engaging in traditional forms of gambling in South Australia. Consistent with a previous study on this issue, it would appear that most individuals who engage in day trading are heavily involved traditional gamblers who include day trading in their repertoire of activities. They differ somewhat from most gamblers in their strong preference for skill-based types of gambling, their higher overall involvement in gambling, and their higher rates of problem gambling. They also have some demographic differences, in particular, being older and having higher incomes. The present findings provide further evidence that not only do certain types of financial speculation bear some conceptual similarity to gambling, they also appear to be empirically related.
