Have been investing for about 20 plus years and have learned much by reading Investor's Business Daily. Although I still subscribe to IBD, I now find that learning with Seeking Alpha is equally rewarding. It is a great site for a diversified field of information. I trade only in my Roth Ira, and have done covered calls only for the past three years or so. Have found DRIP plans to be very good vehicles for long-term investing also. Would like to get into more sophisticated options but being conservative, I may stick to the calls.
