hello! my username is southwestjack. I am a self-taught investor. I have done ok, but now I am in a conundrum,lol. I tried to creat a portfolio of stocks that would do well in an economic down turn. I have things like PWE, POT, CALM. I also have 2 funds in latin american stocks. I have some C, but I trade that up and down with the market. I have a few hundred shares that I trade, selling at about 18.50 or so, and buying again at under 17.00. Its fun and puts from 300 to 800 a month in my account. My problem is i am insecure about guessing which way the market is going. Any thoughts on this?
