Not really.Looks like lots of aggressive investors at this site. All my investments are are US Treasury bills, boring, but quite safe.
Oh how funny. I did the exact same thing!! LOL...Of course timing everything. At my urging, my mother bought heavy into Apple when it was trading around $9 a share in 1997.
I don't have any gold. But I think my mom does.I also keep a few CDs with my credit union, and keep around 5% in gold coins because you never know when or if the entire system will go south.
