Not to shatter any star struck dreamers out there, but ecurrency arbitrage takes effort. Like I've said before, it's not a lottery ticket, or a magic bullet, it's a business and like any business you need to put in a little elbow grease to make it work.
What business takes no work?
Anything that takes no effort, will likely provide no rewards ...or it's nothing but a flat out scam. Ecurrency arbitrage does take effort and it does pay back based upon what you put into it. No more, no less ...put in an honest days work, get back an honest days pay (only better ...I'll explain).
So the reason I sit and copy and paste is simple. The more I copy and paste, the more money I make.
For example, if I set up a transaction that pays me $2 or $5 a day... that sounds like just a small amount of cash, but if I copy and paste this transaction, then I can make $4 or $10.
Now, if I copy and paste 5 times, I make 5 times the return as if i only had 1 transaction set up. Of course, it's not truly a 1 to 1 ratio but the principle is exactly the same.
So if I spend my day copying and pasting, I can then "spend" that cash doing what I choose.
And right now I choose to go shopping. I'm not sure for what but it's ungodly hot outside and the mall is cooler than my apartment.
