Are You Doing Too Much!? | Complexity Vs Simplicity In Trading
6 months ago by Fallible @ Fallible YouTube Channel

In the classroom we were constantly praised and awarded for complexity. A desire for higher marks meant creating more pages of writing, more conclusions, more assumptions, more models, more complexity, more and more. Yet when we exit the sterile classroom and apply that approach to the real world in search of profits, it often translates into less success, not more. Complex approaches usually fizzle out, whereas simple ones, combined with basic common sense and perseverance, tend to bring home the bacon.The market teaches this lesson the hard way. It will take the complex, highly involved PhD thesis and spit it right back into your face in the form of a giant loss or even worse, a completely blown out trading account. The market doesn’t care about fancy complexity and therefore tends to reward the practical street hustler over the high level academic.Long Term Capital Management’s blow out in the late 90s is a classic example of academia gone wrong. While the professors were scr...

Joel Greenblatt On Big Picture Thinking | The TRUTH About Value Investing
7 months ago by Fallible @ Fallible YouTube Channel

In this video we’re going to talk about how you can use big picture thinking to beat the market. And we’re going to do it with the help of the famous value investor Joel Greenblatt. If you don’t know Greenblatt, he wrote the book called “The Little Book That Beats The Market” which included his famous “magic formula” used in value investing. He also created the website Value Investing Club and is a professor at Columbia’s business school. In his classes at Columbia Joel would say that he’s only average at valuation work. He has little edge there. Where he excelled, and where is edge really came from, is in putting all that information into context. He could see the bigger picture and pinpoint what matters. Here’s a quote from him: “Explain the big picture. Your predecessors (MBAs) failed over a long period of time. It has nothing to do about their ability to do a spreadsheet. It has more to do with the big picture. I focus on the big picture. Think of the logic, not just the...

Ed Seykota on Position Sizing
7 months ago by Steve Burns @ New Trader U

“Speculate with less than 10% of your liquid net worth. Risk less than 1% of your speculative account on a trade. This tends to keep the fluctuations in the trading account small, relative to net worth. This is essential as large fluctuations can engage {emotions} and lead to feeling-justifying drama.” – Ed Seykota This was […]

Jack Schwager On Why You're Investing Wrong
7 months ago by Fallible @ Fallible YouTube Channel

In this video Jack Schwager schools us on the importance of focusing on the RIGHT thing in markets — risk management. Too many amatuer investors are focused on the wrong thing when they’re trading. They’re obsessed with entries and finding the next hot stock. That’s part of the reason why there’s so many investing newsletters and youtube channels spitting out so many stock picks all the time. That’s what people want. But it’s not what they need… The best investors have win rates as low as 30%. So if that’s the case, does the specific investment you’re making matter as much as the need for proper risk management? The home runs are so rare, most of the time you’ll just be defending, trying not to lose. That’s why the best investors are so focused on their downside and risk management. Professionals understand that risk management and cutting loses are way more important than any other part of the investing process. They know they’re going to be wrong a lot, so they need to make ...
