This concludes my rookie year. During the year I originated four accounts. Our two IRA's, my trading acct and my son's trading account. I will spin off an investment trust from one of them this year for my business partner who asked to see what I could do with a thousand of his. And my son will roll his IRA for another.
The end of a trading year is the last trading day of March. Every account but my wife's roughly doubled. She wanted me to stay conservative. I would have had a triple but I lost all my gains in the autumn. These are not large quantities. Each account is still under 50k. A person has to start sometime, or restart again for the n'th time in my case. When I told my son that he had to pony 1% of his gain for your favorite charity he thought that was a bargain. I will leave a message for you at the GFA office. [For those listening in, They drill wells for the untouchables who are not allowed to use certain community wells.] All you have to do is ask for a letter for DocReits. AGNC is responsible for much of the gain. I hope next year I have to send them well over a thousand. Your choice of that organisation gives a clue to the wealth in your soul.
