The number of stock market participants has gone up from about 13 million in 2016 to about 16 million in 2021, according to the latest data from the SEC.
While the number of retail investors is actually down, it is still significantly larger than the total of all investors.
For 2017, the retail investors comprised a little over 18% of total investors.
So far in 2018, they accounted for 18.9% of the total, and it is likely that the number will go up as the markets continue to tighten and the economy begins to strengthen.
That means the average investor is spending about $8,800 per year on stocks and just over $3,200 per year in bonds.
“The retail investor is now a much bigger share of the population than at any time in history,” said John H. Elwood, chief investment officer at CMC Markets.
“We’ve never seen that before.
They’re buying a bigger share now than they ever have.”
Retail investors have a number of different characteristics that make them particularly vulnerable to a downturn.
For one, they tend to be young and healthy.
They tend to buy stocks because they expect the stock market will go higher in the future.
Secondly, the number and size of retail investor holdings has gone down.
While there is still a large amount of retail money in the economy, retail investors have been steadily reducing their holdings over the past two decades.
Finally, retail investor spending on stocks has been increasing since the financial crisis.
As a result, retail stock investments have been growing faster than retail bond spending.
That trend will likely continue in 2019, according the SEC, with retail investors spending $5,600 per year more than they did in 2021.
The Retail Investor’s Future Is More Troubled Than Ever: Investing for the Long Run | MarketWatch article Retail investors will continue to invest for the long run, as they have in the past, according John H., CMC’s chief investment executive.
Retail investors need to invest in the long-term to maintain their wealth, but they will need to diversify their portfolios if they are going to keep their wealth from shrinking, he said.
In the meantime, retailers are being forced to spend more to stay afloat, and they are having to invest more to remain competitive in the marketplace.
The market is tightening.
The economy has been strengthening for a few years now.
Retailers need to be investing in the short term, as the economy does not look like it will be as strong as it once was.
Investors Need to Avoid the “Faux Stock Market” That’s Getting Worse: Investopedia article The stock market is still very profitable for retail investors.
They are still getting paid to buy and sell stocks, and the average retail investor earns more than $40,000 annually.
The stock prices of many companies have increased in recent years, including Apple and Nike.
The average retail stock investor earns $15,000 to $20,000 a year.
Still, the stock price is way out of whack, according, and that is not good for the retail investor.
According to Investopie, retail stocks have a 12% to 16% loss per year.
That is significantly worse than the stock prices for the S&P 500 index, which have a 7% to 8% loss.
Investopia also found that the median retail investor will lose an additional $12,400 to $14,800 a year if the market falls by 20% or more.
That means that the average consumer who invests $100 in a stock should lose about $300 in the year after investing the money.
There are two big reasons why the stock markets are struggling right now: the economy is tightening, and retail investors are spending less money on stocks.
The Federal Reserve has been hiking interest rates in recent months, and investors are looking to save money.
But the Fed has been keeping the interest rate at its current rate of zero, and inflation is also not as high as it used to be.
That makes it more difficult for retail investment to keep pace with the market’s growth.
Retails are also starting to tighten their belts as they look to invest longer-term.
One thing the stock bubble that started in 2008 didn’t do is prevent retail investors from investing.
The bubble only made things worse.
