64 years young, retired. Have been researching, educating, and investing for over 25 years. Started with nothing and have been fortunate. I don't subscribe to fee newsletters but do research extensively. Primarily stocks and ETP in five independent portfolios for estate and ease of management reasons, at least for me. I trust my fundamental research and both western and candlestick charting ability. I am satisfied with a total of 22 to 44 stocks/ETP at any given moment across all portfolios. I avoid more. I will be heavy in one or more sector or asset group for a period of good return although my instincts tell me not to do it but keeping personal emotions out of my analysis make it a prosperous engagement. My total return and projected income at age 71 1/2 are looking good especially with the volatile markets. My strategy is basic positional and do hold for years doubling and tripling some positions' mkt value along with a good annual dividend / units yield with high single digit and mid dbl digit annual div and unit increase. Total portfolios' return 5 yr 264%, 3 yr 82%, 1 yr 13.75%. With the mks so high, patience is key to reentering the mkts with new value growth position after taking some off the table. At some point, after RMD i will reduce risk and continue to not speculate. Even if i had $100 million i would not speculate. I did day trade for several years with futures and commodities in the early-mid 90s but ceased due to stress, risk and amount of time to keep abreast of derivatives. Patience and accurate risk-reward v time are key characteristics of my strategy(ies).
