I tend to invest in high-yield, high-risk, but I believe my purchases are long term holdings.

Bad news carries no inertia in the markets, clearly forces are at work that have an agenda disconnected from conventional market wisdom.

The fact is we may very well be witnessing the end of the US Dollar. It will not go out without a fight, or tomorrow, or until it exhausts every possible means to remain viable. The end could be very bitter for Americans.

New to investing, reading all I can at the moment to learn as much as I can. Right now, I'm kind of a scalping trader, buy low, sell high. It's been working for me, for the most part. Thinking about retirement in near future, and interested in finding good growth stocks with dividend income.

I only started active investing after the 2009 debacle when my managed retirement funds came no where near close to tracking the run-up from the 2008 crisis. I realized then that the finance gods have no idea what they are doing and only look out for themselves.
After intense self study and consultation with other successful investors I have started managing my money.
I have learned that there is no such thing as being "fully hedged" and that this economic environment is full of opportunties if you look carefully.
After getting into the market more closely I have witnessed the full-court press of sales-side pumpers/dumpers and other unsavory characters and find the financial world full of cock-roaches, rats, and snakes.
