So, people on many forums in general will tell you to passively invest by buying Vanguard index funds and letting them sit for 40 years so you can have a few hundred thousand for when you retire. That's fine and all, and I do that too, but I want to know how many of y'all do this every day as your bread and butter. How many of you guys have a significant amount of capital (at least 100,000) that you actively manage. How many of y'all buy and sell individual stocks? How many of you guys perform fundamental analysis and use statistics tools to help you buy and sell? How did those of you who do this for a living get to that point? Do you work for a bank, or do you do all of your trading at home? How did you get into it? How old are you? Did you go to school for it?
