Transparency, trust and integrity

My aim is to provide an independent, unbiased service to members and develop a real relationship based on transparency, trust and integrity.

After all the revelations from the royal commission of the last two weeks, tell me something I don’t know. Banks behave badly. AMP lies to ASIC and gives poor ‘expert’ advice. Clayton Utz is complicit, Morgan’s revalue Blue Sky down 60% after the fall, and the likes of KPMG, EY, JLL, Savills and Colliers stood behind its valuations, and then of course Facebook is sorry – again!

Insight Trading utilising our special ‘tools of the trade’

There is no holy grail but the reality is we actually have all the tools we need to trade and invest successfully readily at hand.

My primary tool of the trade is the analysis of price action devoid of stock knowledge, opinion or bias preferring to focus purely on the demand supply dimensions of a stock using repetitive psychological human behaviour as a reason to buy or sell a stock. We see repetitive behaviour play out on the stock market every day. Some mistakes, same reactions, and the same responses

Stops

Why do I stop stocks out at a predetermined level?

To STOP losing money

To STOP giving back profits

But this only works if you act on them, otherwise why set them?

CAPITAL PRESERVATION is my foremost objective, even above making profits.

Take control of your stock market investments.

Take Control

It really is that easy

How?

The Nike motto comes to mind.

Well it finally came. We all knew a nasty correction was going to happen. What goes up must come down. Still we respond with the usual surprise and ‘what should we do’ questions. Many of us are in denial because of course we’ll know what to do or we’ll deal with it when it happens! Sure! Same old, same old – mistake.

To win big you need to learn how to lose

Charlie Aitken (Aim Funds):the difference between my life as a stockbroker and my new life as a fund manager is that now I limit my losses to 10%. As a stockbroker I (we) are not great at issuing sells.
Now when a stock is at a loss I cut it and move on. We work our capital hard and that means cutting the non-performers and move on to new opportunities.’

It is good to know what we don’t know

Let’s not pretend.

We don’t know, do we?

In fact two of the fundamental truths of trading tell us that:

  1. Anything can happen and
  2. You don’t need to know what is going to happen next to make money.

Seems strange but there it is – the truth. It is good to know what we don’t know.

This puts paid to the many analytical hours spent exasperatingly trying to forecast and predict share prices, and yes even technical analysts are more than guilty of that. Fundamental analysts may construct various models, projections and price targets about what the future offers but this is to little avail in guiding us to what share prices will really do. Thus it seems the contrarian was bred!

Why Stockradar portfolios

I am a quant.

In other words, data, numbers, and verifiable results drive my investment decisions.

Why am I willing to stand by this strategy.

Firstly, based on my personal research and results from14 years of performance, it can produce returns that historically outperform those of common benchmark portfolios and in fact more importantly to my members those returns can be ‘absolute’ regardless of market direction.
