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.
Warning I am an emotional trader. I have made a lot of money and lost it! But I always root for my stocks to succeed! It's just more fun that way!
