I'm 32, invest in the light of the Austrian economic tradition, which in today's environment means mostly precious metals and mining stocks using cycles and sentiment as timing mechanisms. ETF's, options, I also own some physical. I've been doing this independently for 3 years. I reserve a small chunk of my portfolio for speculating in biotech and technology where I believe appropriate.

I am personally extremely fiscally conservative, so I can accumulate high-quality dividend paying securities of various kinds and here and there invest on specific ideas/companies I find attractive. I am primarily a long investor with mid to long term holding periods.
