I have been reading a thread about the psychology of playing the stock 'game.'
Interestingly a few posts were of a personal nature [applause] as for me I decided to give the market a go...because I have two young children...father gone bye-bye via an e-mail recently ...leaving me with the responsibility [financially] of doing it all... I am self employed trying to get my cleaning business off the ground [hard slog]...not wanting to rely on the government for anything I thought I would educate myself in regards to the market, [T/A and the fun-dah-mentals] to have a shot at a good life/sports/education for my kids. My thinking...learn as much as I can and go for it.
I am getting a group of women together each with $2000 [to lose] and put a collective portfolio together [diversified] to kick us off. [thoughts?]
Anyone want to share their reasons for entering the market?
