I'm a trend follower. I follow the long term trends. I also follow the advise of investors like Warren Buffett, Jim Rogers, Peter Schiff, David Morgan, and Ted Butler... I am heavily weighed in commodities (80% +/- 5% in commodities related stocks and ETFs). My overall outlook for commodities is bullish and my overall outlook for the US dollar is bearish, unless we revert to the gold and silver backed currency.. or a currency backed by a basket of commodities (energy, lumber, agriculture, basic and precious metals, etc.). As far as bullion goes, I have a ratio about 35% gold and 65% silver in terms of dollars, and approximately 1:110+ gold-silver ratio in terms of ounces. I am also invested in clean energy companies for the future trend favoring clean energy. I like Wind energy and Geothermal energy more than solar due to being able to deliver power more cost-efficiently. Hydro power, although considered clean, causes much more environmental destruction.

Let's see, Veteran (Vietnam era), Commercial Artist, picture framer, industrial engineer & corporate executive (once upon a time), small business owner and operator, Ayn Rand fan, Libertarian (and no, its not a synonym for "Republican" or "Conservative"), and history buff. Serious investor, I need to earn money from my assets, and I'm of the age where I pull money out to help put food on the table. I like to fish, but just as with my investing, I am a "meat fisherman", I only kill what I plan to consume.
