A managed FX account is a excellent way to get into the forex market without having to find out all about it. On the other hand, it can be a fantastic way to get into the forex trading market as you are able to learn at your own tempo at the same time as generating a good revenue.
I retired after almost 34 years in the oil industry as a materials science researcher, as well as performing occasional failure analyses (now called forensics by the politically correct who are afraid to use the "f" word - failure). I've worked on steels, corrosion resistant alloys, polymers, catalysts, composites, ceramics, and geologics (reservoir cores and thin sections) utilizing Scanning Electron Microscopy as my primary research tool.
I was assigned to many of those rush projects, outside of my normal work assignment, and the support groups (graphics arts, photographics, and reprographics departments) nicknamed me Rush.
Husband I both retired although it was more recent for my husband who retired from a major oil company. My background is in criminal justice. Our portfolio is in stock from this oil company which has performed quite well for us until recently. Times are getting scary now with this recent hit across the board it appears in the stock market. We need advice.....and fast.
As an investor I believe money is made by investing where the mainstream is not, because that’s where you find the bargains (value/contrarian investing). I therefore mainly focus on industries and ideas that are currently overlooked and out of favour, but which will eventually see their time in the sun.
