    I suspect you are absolutely right and I am going to have real estate too. Stocks & real estate go hand-in-hand. Eventually, I will have 100-doors. (eventually, north korea)

    Current state of mind is short-term investing in the futures market to extract money to invest long-term. Have not went live yet; I have many many many more practice trades to take and certain metrics to meet before I allow myself to go live. Of course emotions will adjust when I go live but that is what all the practice will be for.

    I hope you find something that works.
    Many people have.
    But most successful investors look at the long term vs trying to make a quick buck.
    With all investments, but especially short term, highly volatile ones, don't invest anything you aren't prepared to lose.

    My father's parent were Belgian immigrants who settled in Los Alamitos. Among a lot of immigrant groups there were wise sages who advised others re. investments.

    This man advised my grandparents in the mid-50s to invest in this company called Disney that was opening up a theme park east of them on Katella. It was the initial offering of Disney. My grandparents never touched it. Only purchased more when they could. They passed it on to their sons, who passed it to the next generation (mine). We bought some on our own about 10 yrs ago at $73 and it recently crept above $200.

    Set it and forget it. Don't let fear and/or greed have a say.

    It's a scheme to elevate etheriums value by it's creators in a roundabout way that won't hold long term value so it's just a hold for the coming crypto dump.
    So I heard from some nerds in their moms basement that trade cards like magic and pokemon at local card shops that they buy at gamestop.
    Have you seen the art cards that come with new magic packs... Some come signed by the artist.

    i just learned about non fungible tokens a week ago and was watching TKAT at around $5 like five days ago and it hit something like $73
    watched bitcoin hover between 2 and 10k for a couple of years not knowing i could buy a partial while trying to figure out wtf it was all about
    then my sis in law was like "i want to buy a piece at 20k" and i told her what i tell anyone asking me and that's i have no idea pull the trigger and be ready to lose it all
    shit hit 61k and closed at 54 today
    i can't invest long in these things because i think it will get shut down at some point
    have heard if the person behind bitcoin is found out that's the end
    i know its all a gamble but devil doesn't get it so i don't hold any of the cryptos although i like to pump and dump on occasion when the winds are blowing

    Priority #1 is investing long-term first. Specifically, eating my indexes to build my base. brick by motherfucking brick. Slowly and consistently.

    I don't think you have to worry about me with that on this TAFNAC, I am far too conservative/concerned with my money. I know my entire investment can be lost and then some.

    Even the money that I win (eventually), I plan to invest at minimum 50% into long-term positions.

    If I do my job right, generations down the line will continue to inherit and grow this.

    It boggles my mind that anyone would spend any amount of money on an NFT.
    I guess I'm getting old, or not vain enough.
    Or something.

    If I put in the work, I will achieve what I seek. If I don't, I get to look in the mirror everyday and understand that I failed.
