I am semi-retired and have IRA, 401K and stock portfolio. Most of the years I have had "professionals" maeftnage investments. I have traded stocks, bonds, picked funds, but always with the nod of the professional. So I am now more interested in actively managing more of my investments to have more control and less $$ in fees. Having a background in law, banking and real estate, I have experience & interest in those areas as well as technology companies and stocks.
