picking hand question

I was wondering what's the best position for your picking hand? Should I anchor it on the bridge to always imply string dampening or if I should keep from anchoring my palm or pinky and just be free floating so to speak?

Thanks for any help!

i'm free floating when playing the lower strings. on higher strings, i'm touching my palm to the lower strings i'm not playing. works well enough for me.
