    Anyway. Things are smooth right now so enjoy it. This is for those with 25-35 years of age children and og children. 99 people pf a 100 do.not know a 35 year old has to invest 3 times more than a 25 year old to be equal at 67.
    And..if you have any question about the stock or commodities markets I do know the answer. I.may talk crazy be crazy. But that has nothing to do with this. I started being taught at 10. I cannot ever not knowing something useful

    I like them very much. If they are sector specific ( say, energy) they are basically a pure play. A "pure play " on the sector that spreads your risk throughout the sector. In addition you avoid the scenario that could find you in the right sector but the wrong stock. I always work from the bottom up analyzing then minimizing risk ss opposed to the highest possibility then the risk. The markets have been so easy the past decade that managing risk is not being addressed often enough. One more thing is index funds save you a lot on fees
