that's a great story , hit and run...I have zero clue about investing and finances. I had enough money in my piggy-bank that was about to be 'invested' in some expensive floor-standing speakers.
The planets were properly aligned at the time, as I was learning crypto-currency lingo and Ethereum stood out over all the other fiats on the market.
Next thing you know, I was awash in ROI within 5 months and instead of getting more greedy and hanging on to it I sold it, before the planets became unglued from each other.
Yeah, I was smiling all the way to the bank and on the way back home as well!
Bada Bing, Bada Bang and a cha-chink!
Yet, I still know jack about investing but won't dabble in bit-coinage ever again!
Moral of the story is that "timing is everything" and "greed breeds tears"!
