Wall Street failed us…
Unspeakable fortunes were realized by the very “pros” claiming to have your best interests at heart.
When the smoke cleared, though, your “pro” was nowhere to be found. You were left duped, swindled and bamboozled out of life savings.
Ask your friends.
Chances are they have all suffered too, wondering — like the rest of us – what happened to their life savings, retirement accounts and college funds.
It was all gone, collected without mercy by the very pros and institutions we all once trusted. There was no reason for our losses.. Greed prevailed.
Trust was lost. Investors pulled millions out of the market.
But I’ll tell you what I’ve been telling investors for the better part of the past 20 years of trading.
You can – and will — make every lost dime back at Wall Street’s expense. And you can do it by taking advantage of the key elements of Wall Street – fear and greed.
Using a blend of technical and fundamental analysis, it’s very simple.
And over the next few weeks, months and years we’ll show you exactly how to expose the soft white underbelly of the beast we all know as Wall Street. And I can assure you that you could do quite well.
As we begin a very profitable journey together, I want you to remember this.
Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy.
We learned that from Warren Buffett.
Think back to when you were younger. Your friends were smoking. You wanted to do it, too because it was suddenly cool. Every one else is jumping off the bridge, mom. Why can’t I? If that’s a familiar refrain, you too know what the herd mentality is all about.
It’s our tendency to imitate the actions of our peers.
But as we’ve learned from the dot-com and subprime disasters, herd mentality can – and will – result in disaster. To profit from this thinking, we must think logically, fundamentally and technically. We cannot act on our gut. If you do that, you’re truly throwing money at the wall, hoping it sticks.
The herd has a natural tendency to make irrational decisions with money. It always has and it always will. We’re so fearful of missing the next big thing and underperforming our peers that we scramble to stay ahead. It is simply the natural ebb and flow of human behavior.
As we recently learned from author Youngme Moon – author of Different: Escaping the Competitive Herd, “The embedded problem with chasing popularity is that you’re not the only one chasing it.”
“The speed at which trends occur and die out, she says, has vastly accelerated thanks to social media and globalization. Simplify when everyone else is tacking on options. Give back to customers when competitors are taking back. Resist the urge to succumb to feature-itis.”
Sometimes, the herd is right. But we pay a higher premium for it. “You can’t buy what is popular and do well,” says Buffett.
Being a Rogue Trader to Many Means Being Dangerous and Vicious
To me, being a rogue trader allows me to beat my own path, and take the road less traveled by the average investor. You see, the markets and the herd are irrational and inefficient because people are emotional creatures too easily manipulated by their own fear and greed. This herd mentality is exactly what leads them to make poor investing decisions.
If you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll continue to get what you’ve always received. And for most investors, that means subpar performance and a dawning realization that someone else is enjoying the good life that should have been yours.
We’re happy to stand in opposition to everything that the herd represents.
