For those using an active trading strategy, I'm curious if this makes up the lion's share of your overall investment portfolio.
I've mentioned my preferences for passive investing and have followed this strategy since I was 23 or 24. I became intrigued by options while doing my MBA work but never used them.
For those that actively trade, how do your returns compare against a benchmark such as the S&P500 taking into account dividends and total return?
Over 1 year, 5, 20, and longer?
I'll be honest, I'm skeptical that anyone here is matching, let alone beating, the S&P long term. And if you're not, what motivates you to keep trying and accepting reduced returns?
I'm reminded of Buffets wager with a hedge fund manager trying to beat the S&P, it didn't go that well if you all recall. The wager ended in 2017 with Buffet and the S&P trouncing the experts.
