    I have a real problem with the Gen X article in that it gets very detailed in the math then completely wipes away the consideration that if you didn’t own a place you’d still have to live somewhere. I think it misses an opportunity to give a complete picture and show how much better/worse off you would be owning vs. renting and THEN burst the bubble of the “real” return on owning a home.

    Like every Friday I drop by to see what Frugal Trader recommended to us… but, different to the other visits I bought the first time in my life stocks this Monday.

    Which literature would you recommend to start working with supportive puts and calls?

    So far I just buy a stock …… and wait and hope that it will rise!

    I am more likely a conservative guesser/investor and am interested in two different investment strategies: Long term (income producing shares, in particular preferred shares) and also right now buy and hold and sell from time to time and if it drops average down the price.

    Hi Alex, thanks for dropping by. Options are a little more advanced than simply buying and selling stock. However, I’ve written a little about them before:
