    Question Any other passive investors out there?

    All of my savings are in index funds, either Vanguard’s total stock market fund (VTI) or a S&P 500 one (VTI isn’t available for my 401(k).

    Since I started working 8 years ago the market has been on a tear so this strategy has worked really well.

    But lately it feels like everyone is getting rich quick off BTC or GME.

    I dabbled in BTC but sold way too early and I can’t trade individual stocks because of what I do for work so no meme stocks for me.

    Hard not to get FOMO on days like today but I know I’ll be fine if I just stay the course and not lose my savings being a dumbass. But I won’t be driving Lambos on the moon either.

    Anyone else know these feels?

    I only actively trade when I have literally nothing else to do. But holy chit at GME, 320% gain in five days.

    I dabble with stocks but not more than I can afford to lose.

    I also invest for long term performance not GME pump and dumps

    I mainly do passive trading. Was trading on robinhood actively though and made a bit but then when all the GME/AMC limiting happened, I sold everything and closed my account.

    I'll probably switch to a new broker for active trading. I'm in no rush. The money train has been running 24/7 since the stock market began. As long as you don't get FOMO it will be alright. Always another hot stock to get in on.

    I've had twice monthly automatic investments into a Nasdaq index fund and a S&P index fund for the past 10 years. Just lol at people who don't invest their savings and have it lose money in a checking account.

    So much **** has went up since March 2020. Take NIO for instance, a Chinese electic car company. Shares were about $3 each, now they're worth $60 each. Imagine had you put $5k into that, you'd nearly have 6 figures right now.

    The hard part is finding the company who has potential. With electric cars company with electric charging stations, that's something to look into. Also look into drones, as Amazon will start delivering packages via drones.

    People have told me making money in the stock market isn't easy and I'm retarded noob, but it's damn sure exciting when you're researching companies that interest you.

    For most people Tesla is out of reach due to its price. If so, instead of looking at Tesla look at the companies that provide tesla with their batteries or manufacturers of EV charging stations. They're usually much cheaper.

    My 401k is the bulk of our investments. passive and in funds but on the aggressive side.

    Wife's IRA is aggressive and usually just invested in 5-8 stocks only. Mostly managed by Edward Jones guy. Its doubled in the last 6 months. That one keeps up and it'll catch my 401k in a few years.

    we have a savings account with Edwards Jones with 50k that is passive on the very conservative side. mostly bonds with tax free dividends in the 4% range, a portion in an S&P index. but this money is supposed to be safe and basically "cash" and able to be liquidated in 24 hours.

    checking account fluctuates 6-10k.

    Then I have a small play account for active risky stuff. some ETH and some stuff mostly based off Motley Fool stock advisor (has beat S&P by 500% over 20 years)

    Keep in mind I'm old misc.

    Some index funds and some dividend stocks I put money heavy into.
