I started investing for the exact reasons Ben Ghram pointed out: I started poor and the ability to grow a money supply with your mind and some startup money appealed to me. I am an "omni trader/investor". 25 years old
First investment was Dec. 2014. Gotten my ass kicked and made some good trades for huge gains so far. The market for me is a constantly perplexing, ever changing, brutal bitch! I am humbled by the wisdom of others.
