78 year old, widow, still living in the same home we purchased in 1976, lived overseas for several years due to my husbands job, (China, Hong Kong, Chile mostly) opened investment accounts with a Broker in 1994, lost on some funds he put me in, watched more closely and recommended some stocks, and things got better. Decided less than a year ago to "try it on my own" so purchased 10 stocks. So far have a return of 22% and wonder, "should I cash in". Boy, could I use some advice as I just don't think this can continue. Our government is totally corrupt so I don't depend on them. We saved all our lives, so don't have to depend on SS. No debt.
