You are likely looking at this from the viewpoint of someone living in a developed western economy where we can easily earn over 100$ per day. In many developing countries the ability to earn money is much more limited. To me selling an account for as much as 300$ (or whatever the most expensive tracker is going for these days) isn't that appealing. I can earn that much money without too much trouble, and it wouldn't be worth risking all my accounts for that little benefit. Now if you think of it from someone who lives in an area where the average worker makes only a few dollars per day then that 300$ could be the equivalent of a month or more of wages. Then selling an account becomes much more tempting.I really don't understand either of these.
Trader- it is a lot of work to get into good trackers. Surely a real job would be a far better source of income.
