We'll see what happens... as for me, I've gone through my savings since the market tanked in mid-october so now I'll be investing only a little a month as I earn it as long as the dow stays below 9000. Once the dow stays above 9000 it will be time to start building some cash savings again...
I won't make myself decide on a single strategy, but I'm favoring the idea of buying minimal stakes of all the GG stocks I don't own (there are plenty) and the idea of buying the high yield stocks that won't fail (OTTR, NWE, TLK, TKC, ... INTC is actually getting close to high-yield territory, HD is there but I'd have to review its balance sheets ...)
Who knows, perhaps a continued investment strategy will bring me closer to zen as well - at least in that Buddhist masters live simply and have no money. Fortunately for me I don't have to fear the markets because unlike most Americans I'm not in debt, and I will stick with the mobility of renting until the woman comes into my life who makes me buy a house.
Investing is like fantasy football, basketball or baseball - except there is a lot more information available and a lot more money involved. Just the strategizing, theorizing and positioning make it an addictive game though. Speaking of which, does anyone here play chess?
