It might seem silly to most people but as im new to investing I don’t know how well my portfolio is doing in comparison to others on the platform. How does the idea sound of a basic leader board that shows username and their Money-weighted rate of return %? could make it opt-in rather than force people to participate.
There’s a thread for this
Hi @Sam.ryall92 welcome to the forum and very best of luck with your investing journey. As @jasejase says there is a fun thread for this. Needless to say I am nowhere near a top performer there , but it doesn’t matter because we’re all running our own races, have our own goals, time horizons and attitudes to risk.
I lead the bottom of the leaderboard. That counts right?
It counts for sure, and futureyou will thank todayyou for investing wisely
As I’ve said many times before, I’m all about the long game. I would love to be like these YouTube stars posting about making X thousands in a week or month but I don’t have the skill (or luck).
If I can earn enough to retired in 20 years (I am 35) without changing my lifestyle too much when it happens, and send my future children to university, then I will be happy.
I started late but I started.
I will get around to reading the articles in your profile @rod, eventually
ahh thats great, just what i was looking for thanks!
Lol wish I started when I was 35, in my 50’s now and while I’ve saved enough to pay off my mortgage I could have earned so much more with long term investments
I wish I had started in my late teens but hey ho
I did some share dealing in my early twenties but it was few and far between and expensive. I think I made £14 for the year ha ha.
