I have been trading since early 90's... Can't say I have done well because I haven't. Lost a lot... However, I have been on a couple of rides and experienced the rush... it is definitely addictive... that's why I am still here after all these years..
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 algo-bots trading among each other. Won't chase any stock/ETF. Over 25 years experience as a networking geek.
