It’s great to see small investors take control of their financial future with the rise of no fee or low fee brokerages like Robinhood. However it can also encourage investors to start speculating on the wrong kind of companies. Most day traders are simply trading in circles. Most will end up losing all or most of their money. The others will eke out a small return that equates to a few dollars an hour when you take into consideration all the time they are spending. Most investors would be far better off simply buying and holding the index via low cost ETF’s from providers like Vanguard and I-Shares.
