Started studying charts 10 years ago during my "free" time (remember that?) - had the "aha" moment... - and keep learning from it as time passes. Social Security and 401K's aren't gonna cut it probably and nothing's getting cheaper. There is a flow in any market - we are here to monitor the flow - the roller coaster - and it's fun after you learn not to get burned. BTW - you will get burned once in a while...
I have been an investor in various forms for the past 30 years. I try to be flexible and go with what appears good at the time. I have managed more positive results than negative. I used to own lots of single family homes, but managed to sell most of them before the real estate crash,(how I managed to see it and people making millions more than me did not, remains a mystery). I now am invested in gold and energy and I appreciate the work of many of the folks here who share their knowledge. My best investments have come from the hard work of others. I just try to synthesis there knowledge into action.
