I sincerely wish the best of luck to all of you and that you enjoy your retirement as well as we do.
I hope you continue to post.........but maybe at a little less length and with a little more humility, you may live in Europe, but you write like an American, and I don't mean Longfellow or Hemingway.
As a European I can agree with your choice of place to live...although Hungary is having some issues with governance right now. Given your ample guaranteed pension income I can see how Day Trading might be attractive, but for most of us who have to derive boring income from our nest eggs it would be folly to expose our portfolios to so much risk. That, along with the puffery of your posts, is the reason for the push back you are feeling.
