My user name does not reflect my market sentiment, rather it is just that my favorite 2 football teams are the Steelers and Bears. When taking out stock positions for myself, I typically will use only extra spending money and not get upset about taking a big loss. Therefore I see it more as gambling as I tend to gravitate more toward high risk / high reward type stocks. I leave the investing of my nest egg to someone more qualified. I am a practicing physician, and therefore feel more knowledgeable about tech and bio-tech stocks, especially with deciphering the validity of studies and the potential impact of new drugs.
