    Was reading another thread by @TomB16 and this poll idea popped in my head. So, send 10% of revenue from this poll to him.

    I looked for "Trading is the work of the Devil." Not finding it, I selected "Investor". :D

    I hope WXYZ comes into this thread. I don't want to be the only "investor".


    I'm struggling over here. Any and all donations appreciated. :thumbsup:

    I really wanted to say investor, but that would be a lie. I would say 95% investor. But its been an evolution. Yrs ago i was probably 95% trader....sooo...yeah. If i said investor, my post history would out me as a liar

    I consider myself both, but far more weighted towards trading.

    Someone else has joined the Investing boredom.

    It's too bad the poll isn't public so we could see who is identifying as what.

    Geez people, get a room already.

    Oh wait, I guess that already happened, hence your posts.

    I consider myself an investor. But a trader too, which I have to admit is way more fun, but with way more unpredictable results too, so I try to only trade with a very small percentage of my capital.
    So my advises are always as an investor. I recently uploaded a video about Ray Dalios portfolio ability to perform well in any economy condition and how can we, as small investors replicate it.
    Feel free to check it out if any is interested.

    IT DOES........the reason there are not MORE investors in the poll is because some people.........EMMETT........misidentified themselves. If you are 95% investing and 5% trading.........YOU are an investor. Why does this post remind me of Jeff Foxworthy?

    You might be a red neck if you've ever rolled a garden tractor.
