Thanks for the rep. That was nice of you. BTW, i'm no pro, i still have to drive a truck for a living, but i do quite well for myself considering i have no formal education(just h.s.). I have mostly learned through trial and error. A lot of lost money and time. That's why i am so excited for for. You are so young and already you are looking at trying to have your money grow for you, without relying on someone else. I wish i had that drive when i was 17. Just take your time, and learn, learn, learn. Soak up anything and everything you can about investing. Immerse yourself in it, then practice first your trading plan. Remember, the markets change constantly, so you have to be able to adapt at what's taking place. The days of buying and holding for 30 years are pretty much gone. Good luck, you have any questions during this learning period, don't hesitate to ask. I'll be happy to answer the best way i can.
