4. Anyone that post under investing must list all their losses in Dollar amounts.
Wait! They weren't as smart as they would have others believe?

The category should economics. Investing is only a small part & is dependent on the economy.

I already detailed mine in another thread. I am generally skeptical of people that only claim wins although very few of those do exists (probably not on patnet though).

Economic posts are fine, too. But little to no politics.

Pretty hard to lose in a market that went up 25%+ in the last 12 months.

Very possible in sectors that are either non-cyclical or not favored at the moment. Biotech, shipping, even energy. True if you just put your money into an index fund or an overhyped tech / nu-energy stock ;) Or just into an index fund. But looks like this uptrend will be over going into 2018. I though already 2017 would be sideways but was wrong so far. 2018 will be much more volatile though I will say.

Hey now it is (still) a valid investing vehicle although it may be on the way of deleting itself ;) That is one steep drop / ugly chart right now.




The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
