My account is based on two levels: 1) broad index etf's (which is the core of my portfolio, consists of 75% of my investments); 2) fundamental analysis, where I pick "best of breed" stocks and wait for discounts in price.

Investing since 82. Felt the pain of the 87, 00, and 08 crashes. All fiat money is subject to devaluation. Most trading is now done by HFT-bots trading among each other. Won't chase any stock/ETF. Over 25 years experience as a networking geek.
