I was closing out part of my Google account
, and it also closed my blog (since Blogger is owned by Google). That's one of the downsides to the way they keep merging stuff into one account
I am going to start a new blog.
The Stock Trading Riches system should work nicely - I would try and maintain a minimum of 30%-40% in the cash/ST bond portion and, in the stock portion, maybe 10% in a long term bond ETF (that is rebalanced as a stock). For the rest, you can do stock ETFs, mutual funds, and/or individual stocks.
The main thing about stock ETFs and mutual funds is not to hold broad-based index ones (such as the s%P 500), because the diversification within the fund will make it fluctuate less, so they are not good for rebalancing.
It would be better to buy individual stocks and/or sector or industry based ETFS and funds.
For example: communications, financial, banking, small cap, value, growth, etc.
