I am a retired accountant, investing in all varieties of instruments. I started investing on my own account in 1982. I have made money on a consistent basis. However I lost everything that i owned in 1987, but on the flip side, I sold UK property in 2006 and sold all stocks and shares in August 2007. You should only loose your shirt once in your lifetime! I do not purport to be a professional investor; however the 'Pros' nearly all have a vested interest in selling their firms, services or investments and this makes much of their advice tainted. If I write it is an unbiased personal opinion and should not be taken as investment advice.
I was originally a golf pofessional but qualified as an accountant in 2003. I am now retired and no longer have a practicing certificate in accountancy.
