Of course, profits can be made in trading. If profits could not be made in trading, then so many people would not be involved in trading. You have to trade with proper training and if you don't do that then you have to face loss. You will make a loss but you have to learn from that loss and move on to trading. If you have all the knowledge, you can make a profit in many trades by guessing. So you have to learn first. Some of the losses in education though are not a problem.
