Something that I'm interested in is the pot stocks as well. Going to educate myself and make it happen.

So, being a total noob I finally got around to educating myself some on how to get started trading this past week. I set up a Robinhood account and got started with a small amount of money. Having some fun so far.

Where would these markets be without the Fed pumping in billions.

You should paper trade (use a practice account with fake money executing "trades" with real market data) before going live.

I just made $4800 on a $400 option position in AMTD when Schwab announced their intent to buy TDA. The best part is that it's in my Roth IRA, so no taxes on that either.

I put $246 total in various stock six weeks ago. The total value today is $288, so overall I made $42 as of today. Better than bank rate but not great. My surprise was cannibas was a loser. Most of my increase was from GE. This is probably going to take more time than I have to make anything.

Most of the cannabis stock have been hammered lately. My P/L on the day today was over $1700. I increased my small account by just shy of 21.5% today alone. My account was ~$2060 last Wednesday morning. Tonight it's $9828.
