I'm going to warn you right from the get go - I have NO earthly idea what I'm doing. None. No, really. Quit my day job and been F/T trading since June 2013. Have more money than I started with. Substantially more. Better lucky than good? Guess so.
Inherited & invested $2M in May 2009, portfolio now ~$8.5M. Purchased basket of Growing, "Brand like", High Quality, Fundamentally Strong, High % Domestic Revenue companies w LONG TERM outlook. Try to keep LONG TERM perspective & invest, not trade.
