I'm a graduate student in the basic sciences. I use SOGOtrade, Options House and Scottrade my brokerages and I also have a few DRIP portfolios. I'm not too serious about investing and have a few thousand $'s here and there to play around with. After the 2008 crash and stalled recovery I figured to get into some stocks, ETFs/CEFs, basically whatever I could invest or trade with to make money. I'm open to anything especially new investment strategies.
