I am a private investor of both options and microcap stocks. There is only way to make big money in the stock market is to have a lot of shares. This is impossible to do with the Blue Chips without leverage. I invest in options to gain that leverage or concentrate on the undiscovered gems which can increase 500%-1000%. Anything I refer to is based upon my own personal investing. I do not handle money for others thus I am on the hook for all my views. Freedom is available for those who are willing to go for it.
