Currently, in the precious metals space, most everyone knows that these mining stocks are trading at a significant discount relative to their historical valuations. Some speculators, such as myself, have started to jump into this sector with hopes of scoring some BIG gains in the upcoming future.

I’ve been slowly exiting out of the markets since May when I sold out of most of my individual stock holdings. Sudden stops and turns always seem abrupt, so I am not surprised in the least bit that my shifting strategy approach has caught the ire of a few other investors.

When it comes to early financial independence, we all realize that cash flow is the name of the game. However, the path from ZERO to HERO does not have to only traject along a linear path; after all, there are multiple ways to skin a cat.
