Investing became a passion and hobby several years ago. Since then, my style has certainly matured and advanced, primarily due to my own mistakes and misjudgments at the beginning - nothing serves as a better learning curve than losing money! (Every day should teach us something new in the markets.) Although I'm not finance professional or adviser, I've been able to educate myself to the point that I can consistently outperform the markets. My strategy is simple... invest (and trade) where money can be made. See? Simple!

Evaluation of the dominant assumptions and an understanding of the dynamics of the economic engine is the basis of an approach to asset allocation that provides for both a rational determination of value and an understanding of sentiment in the form of price as a measure of the irrational nature of the operational environment, an approach that is intended at once to avoid unnecessary risk while at the same time enable gradual rebalance of assets as a means to increase net worth via optimization of appreciation and long term yields. Let's call that buy low and fly high just for fun.
