I’ve always wanted to get involved in trading, but have been put off by the relatively high entry point, and the large fees.
There is definitely a part of me doing it for fun. Even to say, I have a part of “X” company.
I’m no where near knowledgable enough to think I’ll beat anyone (or anything) - But I think I’ll learn a lot more by doing it, and then learning/reading and gaining more knowledge.
There’s also an element of “control” - I have a Wealthify account which is down.
I have zero control over it, and I feel that if I took the time to learn the ropes, I could pretty much do the same thing (but be in total control myself).
I’d never put money in there that I could afford to lose - Not whilst there are gaping holes in my knowledge anyway.
Perhaps by the end of it, I’ll have a huge chunk of savings in there, but diversified across many companies/funds to limit the risks.
