Stockbroker for 30 years with mid-to larger-sized national companies. Retired since 2001. Active daily in the markets, not trading, but investing from time to time. Bot gold stocks for the first time in my career in 2002. Even surprised myself. Some big successes and some not, but still holding them. Also have been in MLP's for years . Have owned several Canadian companies since retirement and that too is a surprise to my past activities. These include REIT's, utilities, and retirement home companies and of course, gold miners. I forecasted a rise in the looney and hit it right, until I was wrong on the exchange rate. I have bot some gold and some silver coins in 2015.
