At age 58 a severe heart attack changed my outlook on life. I decided to retire and live off my investments. I am not an expert on finance, math, charts, stocks, or options. I have learned from my many mistakes and seem to have a good feel for the big picture. I do not short stocks but occasionally buy puts which is tantamount to shorting. My largest weakness seems to be selling winners much to soon and holding loosers much to long.
