Last update: 13th of April 2019 (chart updated)
Every single position is in long horizon – fortunately until the sun dies on us (at least as long as dividends remain intact).
New additions will be covered to my best abilities and as far as already established positions are concerned my goal is to provide articles for them in future probably when it’s time to add to or remove from them. Hopefully my preparations will yield more positive results than failures and thus the minimal possible amount of “sorry had to cut this down” posts.

DISCLAIMER: your money = your responsibility
Full version: I am NOT a professional advisor nor did I receive any kind of formal education in any field even remotely connected to anything mentioned on this site unless explicitly stated otherwise. Thus every single post should be treated as coming from some random guy talking with you in your local bar while having a beer.
Nothing on this site is set in stone and since I’m merely human mistakes can and will be made – hopefully with no drastic consequences for either of us.
Any mistakes or errors on my part will be corrected as soon as I find them (or they get reported to me in any form).
Everything is my own personal opinion. In most cases my money will be put where my mouth is since this is basically a register of my analysis and road to financial independence. If at any point my actions won’t be in line with the message there will be a suitable information included for my reasoning.
No guarantees are given on my part and following my footsteps is your own responsibility since those are your legs not mine and we are all supposed to decide on our own.
