More Information

Born to just above the bottom of the socioeconomic classes in the states. Both of my parents are below average IQ, anti-intellectual supernaturalists, and I grew up being abused by my peers and ignored by the authorities except for the occasional verbal admission of my talents. I am currently homeless because I can't get housing based on a percentage of my income which is the kind of cost structure I need to compete with the already rich for wealth. I did this to create actual substantive savings rapidly while doing coffee shops, restaurants, and cannabis daily. I've already generated more free cash than 40% of Americans after 1.5 years and restarting from literally nothing (was down to some bedding material, a tent, and couple pants and shirts with 30k in student debt for a couple months). I paper traded for a couple years and found I did well with greater portfolio liquidity with access to day trading ability to actively trade long term hands as well as short term ones. I'm currently trading less than 10k to get used to the feel of real losses. So far, I feel the same as with the paper account- I don't think there is much difference between the real account and fake account for me. I have a high risk tolerance, enough to lose 20% day trading a squeeze on ONTX while working heavy labor 12hr days without any more sweat than I would trade the exact amount with fake funds; it woulda been a huge loss, but I decided the squeeze was over when 80% went to 60%, sold it and saw -40% at close (yep, that day it was up 80% in the morning and down 40% by market close)
