There are just as many rich traders as investors. In my mind, you don't invest in commodities for the long-term like you would with stocks.

Traders aren't investors. Traders trade to make money. Just because it's not worth owning doesn't mean it's not worth trading. There are some stocks like biotechs that have such great volatility that discerning traders could certainly make money.

Anyways, to the point.

Certainly for your account to be at the same-near level as it was two years ago is a poor reflection on the long-run philosophy and you should probably move your account.

You don't necessarily have to become a trader. Buy and hold still works.
