Investanomics was created for those looking for a way to become profitable in the market. Like many in the beginning you may be struggling with the consistency on how to make money in the markets through various economic periods. You tried reading all the books and studied all the systems but still no luck. I have been trading and investing in the markets for over 11 years and have been successful in my strategies. What I found after many years of trading and investing will turn what many believe upside down.
What you first have to realize is before you could consistently make profits in the market you have to understand how the markets actually work. There is more than one way to make money in the markets. In fact one trader could be long and another could be short the same stock at the same time and still both exit their positions profitable. How is that? They both could be investing in different timeframes with different strategies. One could be trading a stock for just a few minutes while the other could be looking to hold it for a few months. The market moves in ways that are determined by all participants and with every trade that you take there is always someone on the other side that is betting that you are wrong.
Why is this important? Because it’s the basic foundation on how the market moves. Everyone has their own special system and belief that causes them to buy and sell. Those movements which may seem random at first actually have instances that may be exploitable to create those profits. The best part is that the market repeats those movements all the time which are what create those consistent profits.
I like to picture the market as a giant ocean with waves that go up and down. Those up movements are the different strategies that outperform the other strategies and those down movements are the strategies that underperform. There are billions of dollars that go in and out of different markets and assets classes everyday that cause those waves. The tricky part is knowing the correct timing, what asset class and which strategy to implement that would have the best ROI at that point. Because of this I believe in order to have a consistent return in the markets you have to be able to take advantage of multiple strategies at different times. By focusing yourself on only one or two strategies could create periods of underperformance as the market creates those waves. Also by investing in different strategies you can diversify your risk by investing in different asset classes and strategies.
I will outline some of my strategies that I use in my trading as well as how I manage my positions. I will post plays that will be tracked here.
