I want to thank everyone for participating in this discussion. Each and every reply has helped me enormously. I've learned a lot, and really enjoyed doing it.

I've come to the conclusion I'm better off waiting before I do anything with the market, analysis paralysis aside. I'm better off continuing to to what I've been doing what I've been doing for the past few years, I'm going to go with what I know. I'll continue my education and learn about the market, in the long run I know I need to do it.

For now my I make much better profit from my capital than I ever could in the market. I'm able to flip vehicles; buy and sell antiques and other tradables....and last year I tripled my money, so not bad, couldn't do that in the market.

Too bad though. I was really hoping to find a way to get into the market with around a grand to learn how things work so I could learn how to be successful in the long run.

Now I suppose I will find a way to learn without actually putting something into it, because it seems that isn't realistic. I'll find a way to do it, somehow.

I'll keep returning here to continue my education. Granted, I will likely continue to ask questions that frustrate some, but hopefully I will find a way to do that without annoying you all too much.

Thanks again!
