I am a self taught GalTrader. I have been very lucky with my picks. Rule #1: Never fall in love with a stock and always take profits! Always do your DD. Good luck to all! If you have any good tips hit me up!
I have been investing since 1986. I primarily use mutual funds as a long term hold with tactical allocation moves as needed. About 10% of my portfolio is in stocks and/or ETFs of which I trade occasionally.
