To best describe me one investor who learned from the school of hard knocks. I didn't go to any presitgious schools, but after 6 1/2 years of service I went into business myself. Became successful and sold that off. Through that time, I have owned real estate (residential/commercial), private placements, owned/sold/collected on debt portfolios, commodities. Well, I have loss alot of money, and then again I have made alot of money. But it was from hard work and lessons learned. I do have a special interests in gold and silver markets, after DD over the monetary system. After doing that DD, I believe it is a necessity to have in everyone's portfolio. If you don't, you do not have the insurance you really need to protect your net wealth. Once that is established. The rest is a play on the fiat money system. I only choose stocks that pay a dividend, are undervalue, and are in the beginning or mid up trend. That way I can buy/hold for the duration and also do some day trading for fun. So, if I slip on a day trade, oh well, I wanted to own it anyways and at a price I don't mind. Has been working well so far. cross fingers right mates?
Fredrik Arnold is my pen name. In 2012 I retired from doing quality service analysis for John Hancock Long Term Care Insurance in Boston then moved to North Carolina in 2013. My fascination with capital preservation, fixed fractional trading, and trading systems keeps me blogging for Seeking Alpha. Most of my articles focus on dividend yields and analyst mean 1 yr targets as stock trading indicators. These are essential tools for catching the most valuable dividend dogs.
