The financial actions I talk about are for my own portfolio and money and only suited for my own risk tolerance, strategy, and ideas. Copying another person's financial moves can lead to large losses. Each person needs to do their due diligence in researching and planning their own actions in the financial markets.


  1. I'm a little confused about the difference between the investing account and the trading account. Is the trading account meant to be like a day trading account in the future?

  2. The investing account is for any passive income. Primarily dividends come in with no active work. Just owning the shares. Its for investments that I want to own for their own inherent properties. e.g. Ownership of a company that I like.
    The trading account is for anything I want to actively manage and spend time and energy in getting a profit out of. Its for things I want to buy and sell solely for the profit I can make of it. Forex is a good example. I really don't have a personal fondness for owning actual Euros lol.
