Such a nice morbid thought that most young traders don't consider but maybe some older ones with families may have thought of. I have spent considerable time setting up a good estate plan to include wills, poa, trusts, life insurance, etc., so that is all good. My next plan is to spell out instructions for my broker to close out all trades in my trading account and move that money into a specific ETF so my wife is overwhelmed looking at the account while she hopefully mourns my dead ass. I am currently spending this year making my accounts simple and more easily understandable for her in case I get hit by a bus tomorrow. I wonder if others have given thought to this??
