The Core component of the strategy is accumulating US Stocks. I also utilize options to enhance income and manage risk.I started investing in the stock market at the age of 15 in 2005. All my articles and comments are strictly my opinion and therefore do not constitute investment advice, and they do not constitute a recommendation to buy or sell any security.
