I have said that I make no claims that I can or have consistently beaten anyone. All I can say is that I have managed my own IRA effectively for several years and have been able to withdraw what I/we need and still keep it steady or even improving despite those withdrawals.

Not dealing with any agent or investment firm, as such, I also charge myself no commissions, of course. Just what I pay for a trade ($7.95 per trade).

Finally, my whole point is that far too many people ignore the potential for doing better on their own than just sticking their money someplace and riding along, paying whatever their investment advisor(s) charge, and trusting that all will be well, and that they can pull whatever they like, whenever they like.

To each is or her own.
