January 28, 2017: Roller Coaster

Today was pretty wide-ranging. We put together a number of ideas from the last few shows to highlight the uncertainty of this market. We talked about what could take it up and down, and how ultimately which direction would win was impossible to know. As I post this the market has been dropping because of the reaction to the new Executive Order on Refugees, as well as other policies. We aren’t even two weeks into this presidency and it is looking like a wild ride. One of our students remarked that the next 4 to 8 years would be like having a free ticket on a roller coaster. My response was that I wasn’t sure that any of us were tall enough to ride it.

May 28, 2016: There Must Be Some Sort Of Mistake

First, I want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day and thank our veterans for their service. Let us never forget those who paid the ultimate price…

Second, on a more mundane topic… This week we did something different. I had a guest, Tarek Albareedi of Online Trading Academy Phoenix, on the show. We discussed the four biggest mistakes that traders and investors consistently make. Each week on this show, we spend a great deal of time talking about macro topics and the risks and opportunities they pose. However, even if you know what is coming, if you don’t know what to do and the mistakes to avoid, you will still be unable to take full advantage of those opportunities. This week we tackled the most common of these mistakes.

March 26, 2016: Risky Business

The key to success in the markets is risk management. That is an easy thing to say, but what does it really mean? Is it just using a stop-loss?

Risk management starts before you ever make a trade or investment. It starts with, what are you investing in? Unfortunately most people are investing in the wrong instruments. For example, stocks are very difficult to risk manage, mutual funds are worse and mutual funds inside 401(k)s make a mockery of risk management principles.

Beyond the instrument, there is the price paid, the fee structure, the plan for the investment, the general market conditions and much more. We go through these ideas in today’s show.

We also talk about how the market has changed. The world isn’t the same as it was in the post WWII world when there were a number of drivers of the American economy that just aren’t there any more. Unfortunately, those drivers aren’t coming back. This adds the issue of time-in-position to risk management.

The Start Of Something Big?

Last Thursday the Dow fell over 300 points and wiped out the entire market gain for the year. The predictable discussion of, “is this the top” started. My suspicion is “no”, but the key is, no one knows. This is why it is critical to be an informed trader and investor, to always focus on risk-management first, which is not how most people approach the market. At some point (and maybe now), this market is going to take a huge hit (my guess is at least 50%). There could be many triggers, but the most obvious is not that the Fed is raising interest rates, but that people start to believe that they will. This market lives by the Fed, and will likely die by it. Check out today’s show to learn more!

March 1, 2014: Risk! Rolling on the Ukraine…

We talked a little Ukraine and the general uncertainty in the world. We then moved on to a discussion about how we have been able to live beyond our means for decades now, not just by borrowing, but by trading worthless little green rectangles for TV’s, cars, etc., and how ultimately this all has to end, and end badly. The overall theme was the importance of risk management. It is the unknown unknowns that get you. And just like a terrorist only has to be right once, a trader or investor only has to be wrong once to suffer some major losses. So risk management first, last and always!
