I'm a self employed businessman who started trading in Sept 2011. I did OK my first year, I guess, being ahead $30,000 just by holding Apple. But I made a fatal mistake and kept holding. I didn't have a plan.
I've learned a lot about investing these past few weeks, as I watched in shock the past 6 months as the Apple crash ate away at my funds.
I now know how to invest. I have a method and a plan, and feel free to check it out and let me know what you think.
Good luck, everybody!
I was trained in finance, but work in strategy. I invest very infrequently, and balance my portfolio once a year. I buy and hold hold indices and volatility ETFs. I trade a little bit on the side, but that's pure gambling, for fun.
