Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Trader. I usually have great picks but more often than not fail to buy! Trying to get over this problem.
I've been watching CNBC since Mark Haines was there, and still enjoy watching now.
Befuddled by all the financial websites, from SA to Stockgumshoe.
My favorite is Hit The Bid, only because I can relate to the missed opportunities or buying high and selling low when the opposite is the obvious goal.
I'm up 25% for 2013, but not trading enough weight to do it for income.
Wondering what mutual fund managers really do.
