First . . . fully understand the difference between "Investing" and "Speculation". Decide and understand which of these you really want to do and WHY, then do it. It doesn't have to be an either or issue. You can do both, but you've got to decide just how much of each you're going to do.

The wheel is spinning . . . good luck. ;-)
