Today the game changed...Edited editon

God I luv the hate mail these threads bring...LOL! Are some of you so stupid that you actually think I cause this shit to happen? Or that I just bet against the markets 24/7? FWIW, all I'm doing is proving in real time how dumb some of the nonsense [...]

Be cautious about taking financial advice from someone who has to work for a living.

There are many people who are eager to suggest how you should invest. Do these folks have to work for a living? If they do, then are they really qualified to tell you how to get ahead? Find out how to interact with those who don't have to work for a livi [...]

I've got that feeling again.

At Dow 9000 I'll let you know whether "its" over or whether "its" just beginning. To be safe I'd start dusting off my helmets and flak jackets and finding places to hide the kids if necessary. Before then we probably have to rip the faces off the short [...]

Building wealth

Posted by rw86347 on 6/12/2007 at 8:01 AM | 16 comments | 1919 views

No Tips from me! Actually only actual millionaires can give advice.

Posted by financeninja on 8/2/2007 at 3:46 AM | 16 comments | 1436 views
Only millionaires, real ones, should be able to give advice or tips. If you aren't one then you don't have much advice to give yet even if you are semi-successful. That's my tip. Don't take tips from guys like me until I make it.

Making a bet and taking a stand

Posted by LT1 on 5/15/2011 at 8:01 PM | 16 comments | 475 views
For several reasons, most too complicated to explain to this crowd, I have slowly but surely, for the first time since early 2008, built up what I call an FU portfolio. That is a basket of securities that will increase exponentially should the market gods [...]
