I have some real money invested here, in the Argentinian Market, around 7000 US$ (conservative approach), and now I ve won some new 2000 US$ that I ve decided to spend in US Market, since new argentinian brokers allow working with Wall Street. I know is little money, but I really do not need it. I feel close to the Rule Braker ideas, one of the reason is fool.com and its tutorials and schools that I ve been reading for these years, another, I think in this ocassion high risk is better than low risk low returns... of course I do like the idea of "don´t mimic us", but on the other side, I like the idea of working together.
Should I try rule breaker with my 2000 dollars? If yes, how should I start?


Hi Ruy!

You've certainly laid out your financial journey well, and considering:

--the Rule Breaker approach will only make up a small portion of your portfolio
--you are comfortable with the Rule Breaker objectives
--you believe now is the time for some high-risk investing

...it seems fine to me. I'd certainly try to start off slowly in RB investing, dedicating no more than perhaps 10% of my portfolio to it.

How do you start? By reading all you can on this and related discussion boards... by running companies through the RB criteria.... by discussing what you've discovered on this and related boards... and by becoming totally familiar with the companies you will eventually buy.

The more you do these things, the more you'll learn, and the better you'll become as an investor.

Cheers,

TMFOrangeblood
