I trade the whole portfolio. I use ETFs for classes like small caps, sectors, or countries, but I’m not using a SPY or QQQ like fund.

To be clear, I’m mostly in individual stocks. But I have a large position in IWM and some country ETFs. And about 10% of my portfolio is spec stocks with another 5% or so in crypto. If you’re younger you could be even riskier than that.

Similar. Trade with 20%ish. Usually no more than 2-3% of total in any one position. Higher conviction trades can go as high as 5-7%.

Same here, 10-15% in trade rest in index funds

I try to keep it to under 14.28% in any one position

Yeah i trade like 75% but I’m young and also mostly diversify and am pretty conscious of my risk levels

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
