quote: They might ask me about it--I'll show them all the alarms but even then, the prospect of making a little money outweighs the risk.I suppose that is what separates the men from the boys. The men will spend hours upon hours of doing due diligence (and some will spend weeks) delving through financials, calculating ratios, looking at technicals, websites, history, news, investigating insiders. Some will even go so far as contacting the businesses (I do) and occasionally visiting them in person. Of course, it all depends on the sum of money to be invested.

quote: And you are incredibly wrong. I make tons of money investing every day. Buy and hold is dead. Trading is what I do and I do it well. I don't day trade but I'll gladly flip something in two weeks for a quick 10 - 15%. I manage very large sums of money.
quote: Also, I don't just track fundamentals and technicals. My methodology is extremely complex and a deep understanding of economic theory is also important. Equally important is an understanding of psychology. :)
