yeah, no **** 16% in this market is good!
That's what I mean. Why should I have a financial advisor that has hundreds of clients he's trying to please, who buys big blocks of mediocre stock, who has no special interest in me, as compared to his entire client base?
I'm not kidding when I say I'm my best customer. I'm my ONLY customer, and the only one I have to be successful for.
Since I learned the fundamentals, how and when to buy (and it isn't at all hard, like these "experts" make out to be) I've consistently done better than average.
You don't have to learn all these fancy "out there" tactics. I don't make these speculative crazy buys.
heh....in my mind it's like someone who tells you you have to have a cell phone or pda or whatever to remind you of stuff, when all you may need is a piece of paper and a pen.
If I make an error, it's my error. I never feel helpless, like "it's the market, it's out of my control"
I can't control the stock market, but I CAN control my actions in response to how it's doing.
This can be a subject for a whole other thread.
Relating it to this attorney....Of COURSE they want you to believe it's all too complicated for you to understand. I'm not saying there's many areas of law that are way beyond my figuring out. But I have no doubt I can understand what I want for me in particular.
