I'm 28 living overseas watching the fall of the USA and the rise of the east. I am very much hopeful about the future in a globalization standpoint and hence invest heavily in Stocks with overseas interests. This includes but isn't limited to MSFT, FB, TRQ, RIO and MO being my most frequently traded stocks. I have a small amount of capital and look to lock in small gains 5% per trade in short term time periods to make more profit than the S&P 500. My philosophy is that if you invest in any good stock, it will always rebound if you wait long enough. To date I have only realized one loss on a trade.
