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.
My strategy is simple. I invest long-term in great companies, & pick stocks with great dividends. I buy & hold, and don't touch options. I cut my losses at less than 5%, and take as much profit as possible.
