Well, I’m tired of just seeing day traders, gold traders, market timers, &c. post their threads with their trades (or, not) in it. I understand the excitement of market timing, I’ve done it and the adrenaline rush is similar to gambling (at least for me-that’s why I’d rather just go play poker, less chance of lossing my money).
I personally have made a promise to myself to never invest based off market timing again. Though always have I invested most of my estate (read, >95%} based off fundamental principles, I now handle ALL of my estate based off fundamental principles (read: 97%, because of temporary cash holdings).
This thread will be about my activities in a Roth IRA in which I have $26,000 invested. (I have other brokerage accounts, but I do not feel comfortable discussing those here, but I make similar moves in those accounts just different particular investments (read: same type)), since there won’t be much activity (I make moves once a quarter…that’s if my stocks move too far away from each other).
Since, I move so infrequently this thread can be a couple of things…a book club, where we discuss books written on the fundamentals of investing…my suggestion Unconventional Success.
Discussing fundamental principles of investment
Asking questions about FPI
Asking questions about Asset Allocations, Lowering of Costs, and avoiding Taxes.
If you ask me a question about Market Timing or “Tactical Asset Allocation” I won’t answer it.
Next post, I’ll post numbers.
