I have been doing this for a long time, and the only advise I am going to offer right now, is that you have to have your own strategy. Asking the forum for which stocks to buy is not a strategy, it is a roll of the dice. Because you will get different opinions from different people, each with their own strategy. Classic example right here - Preston says stay away from MTA, I say MTA is a buy, There are hundreds of strategies out there - each with their own merits. The thing is, you need to be true to one and stick to it. If you don't do this - you will lose money every single time, because you will let your emotions govern your investment and trading.

I am a long term full time investor that has done this for nearly 20 years-I do not have the right make up to be a trader.read as many books around investing as you can lay your hands on.read the business news every day.invest in companies whose business model you understand and with management you trust.its very like playing monopoly-if you make 6 out of 10 good decisions after you have done your research then you will have a good time and prosper.Hopefully the markets will in general go up as they have done for me for the last 20 years.good luck.

The best advice I could give would be to wait for the next big market correction. Many sectors of the market are near all time highs-This is the 6th year of the current bull market. If you are looking to be a contrarian investor and looking for value , the resources sector has been pummeled . KIO/EXX must be near all time lows. Even there you may want to wait a while , they could fall further.My personal favorites right now are gold miners ANG, SGL- they too have been hammered over the last few years.

Different strategies works for different markets.Having one strategy and being true to it, means you could be swimming naked when the current tides rolls out.
