Investing since 82. Felt the pain of the 87, 00, and 08 crashes. All fiat money is subject to devaluation. Most trading is now done by HFT-bots trading among each other. Won't chase any stock/ETF. Over 25 years experience as a networking geek.
Can I make a living at this? Verdict still out. Now learning options, hopefully better for capital and profit protection. Plus, like the leverage it offers. Using short term Deep ITM Options now. Long term ATM too. A fan of AAL and GOOGL

Heavily leveraged, only taking positions when a large reward:risk bias skew perceived. Exit quickly after the easy money has been made but press the great moves if out-sized returns are probable via statistically (seemingly) improbable continuation.
