I thought it was pretty obvious why.
Someone who loses $10 when they are earning $1000 a day is a piss in the ocean.
But someone who earns $20 a day and loses $10 is a big deal. That is why percentages mean little when earnings are on the low end of the scale.
Hah? Run that by me again. How is $10 from $1000 50%? What he was saying was that it's easier to lose $10 from $20 per day than it is $500 from $1000. Either way it's 50% and both hurt. The question I had is why is it easier to drop 50% from $20/day than it is to trop 50% from $1000/day.
