This is my first post here - I hope it goes well - wish me luck.
I'm a newbie to this forum, but not to the share market.
I first got into the share market around 2006 I started with a comsec account with $50K in it to play with. I made quite a lot of money 2006 - 2008 and then it all went pear shaped. I've been out of action pretty much since Babcock and Brown collapsed.
Ok, so now it's 2011 and I'm back where I started in 2006 - the shares I kept (mainly blue chip, but heavy on resource stocks) along with the profits I reaped are back to just above $50K again - I'm not a complete tool.
I've got a full time job - and I've got plenty of time to spend studying the next big thing.
Anyway, this conspiracy theorist that I communicate with sometimes sent me a link a couple of weeks back that got me back in the game.
To paraphrase - the U.S. is f'cked and the only way out is if you buy precious metals - preferably silver bullion and lock yourself in a cave while the whole scenario takes place.
I listened to the whole freak'n thing (goes for two hours or something) with a really bad hangover. As a result the following Monday - I googled "Silver Miners listed on ASX", I had a lazy $5K that I ended up investing (gambling) in a silver miner called AYL - since that day sometime last week the stock has gone absolutely gangbusters.
I've made more money in 7 days than I've made in three freaking years holding crap like WOW, OZL, BHP, RIO, ROC AGL, IAG.
I'm not really sure where I'm headed with this and I guess the subject doesn't really describe the content of my post.
But I'm keen to learn some tips and tricks that will make me much more successful at this caper than I have been to date.
