Why am I doing this?

I have become interested in investing as a potential way to increase my personal capital. My ultimate goal is to try and make my retirement in approximately 16 years more comfortable. I began this journey about 6 months ago and have been learning as much as possible about how someone in my position might approach this. I realized recently that a lot of the research that I have been doing might be of use to others with similar intentions, as well as people with longer investment horizons. My intention is to share what knowledge I gave gained and to perhaps share my actual journey into the world of trading, with all its ups and downs.

So here goes. The following are some of the subjects that I hope to cover:
