Hi all, So, I am new to the site and new to investing. I am a young and some would say immature 47 year old who is just now starting his life. I am very excited about this site. I am currently on TD Ameritrade and WeBull. WeBull is way too hard to understand so I think I have wasted $100.00. TD Ameritrade is much easier for my until I get to the "think or swim platform. I consider myself an average witted individual when it comes to getting around a computer but some of this stuff is just so overwhelming. This site so far seems very cool. I think from the looks of it I have only seen about 5% of what this site has to offer. Not sure if anybody is even going to read this or not but I sure would like to friend some people if that is doable here to have a friend to chat with and possibly somebody who can help me with some basics of Investing. I have read and watched a LOT of articles and videos but would love to be able to talk to just talk some s h_ _ _'s and giggles with some good ol' people. I guess I would like to start off with my first question"

Does everybody have to be involved in the extended hours, premarket, post market, overnight investing? I had no idea there was such a thing until I closed the app at around 2:00 PM Arizona time and then back on at around 6:00 AM Arizona time the next morning and saw that my stock had a day change % increase of 15%. So that was cool but then one of my other stocks dropped 47%. So, is this something everybody has to consider when evaluating your risk?

I sure hope somebody reads this novel and gets back to me. I promise I am not that stupid, well maybe a little bit. Talk to you all soon I hope.

Loving TSLA and my sleeper DDD.
