Hey Guys,You'll have to excuse me for this seemingly "noobish" question. As much as I like law (and arguing), all types of regulation just blow me out of the water. Not my area of expertise!Anyway, I've made some successful plays in the stock market. Some of my friends are wondering if they could "give" me money, that I can put in the stock market, and grow for them. In return, I take a fee, etc.This, by definition, is a stock broker. However, this isn't anything professional. It's just a soul proprietorship making money for friends, and taking a small cut of it. Before I do anything like this, do I need to become a licensed stock broker? Going through the test seems a little excessive. Everything would be under my name, I'd pay taxes on the gains, etc.Hope this isn't too long, just wondering if I would be doing anything wrong before I do it.Thanks in advance!
