Can anyone explain skewness in relation to "gains and losses". For example, looking at a positively skewed distribution, i don't get the frequent small losses and few extreme gains thing. HELP!!

This is because negaitve skew has the peak in the right and "excess" tail to the far left (extreme loss.)
