I’ve been toying again recently with the core and explore idea of putting a few thousand dollars into my Zecco account and testing out some active trading theories like options, swing-trading, technical analysis, fundamental analysis, whatever. I finally feel like I have a large enough portfolio that a thousand dollars is only a few percent of the total.
The money is already there, I just haven’t pulled the trigger yet. Now, I don’t have better than a 50/50 chance of beating the market, but I do think it would be fun to try and I could learn some things along the way. Does anyone else have a similar account?
In addition, I’ll be openly sharing all of my trades, and keeping track of my performance very carefully. That’s what I’ve always wanted – to actually see people who actively trade reveal their true performance. (And mock them – like you’ll be able to do to me! )
