It may not work for you. This website is for educational and entertainment purposes only, and is not to be considered professional investment advice.

All investing comes with risk. Remember that past performance is not a guarantee of future returns. Again, I am not an investment professional, and what works for me may not work for you. I do not take any responsibility for any decision that you may or may not make upon reading through this website. 


All views expressed on this website are my own except in the case of guest posts (wherein the views expressed are the views of the guest poster).

Some of the posts on this website may be sponsored posts. That means that a partner has paid me to create and post the content. The views expressed in the sponsored post are still my own, and have in no way been altered or skewed by any partnership I may be engaging in. Any post that is sponsored will have a disclosure associated with it.

The Website works with Mediavine to manage third-party interest-based advertising appearing on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.

First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.

Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.

  • IP Address

This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website. Mediavine Partners may also create unique IDs to create audience segments, which are used to provide targeted advertising.
