Hello all! I am Philosophydaddy and am excited to have found this forum. I am not very knowledgeable about the stock market or how they work other than most people will say buy low and sell high . What I am interested in, and as such will probably be posting about more often then not, is how world events affect the market and how speculation within the market, in attempting to predict world events, affects how investors and brokers think the market will react. I am excited to learn a lot and will probably be asking a lot of questions!
