I've spent 51 years trying to find the Holy Grail of investing and found that there are many reasons for investing and many more ways to invest. I spent hours and hours reading investment books and periodicals and many years reading Value Line, Morningstar and countless investment newspapers, newsletters and bulletin boards.
Today I started to test all these theories by using Marketocracy and setting up 23 different portfolios that invest in stocks and ETFs. Some are Asset Allocation passive portfolios that are rebalanced periodically, some are very actively managed and stocks might be bought and sold almost daily.
Marketocracy makes you prove you have added value by imputing a 2% management and expense fee to all portfolios just like an actively traded mutual fund would.
