Rule Number 1: Control Risk
My favourite investor adage has always been: BULLS make money, BEARS make money, PIGS get slaughtered! I never want to be a PIG!
As long as there have been financial markets, there have been financial market cycles that begin in a climate of investor pessimism and end in investor "irrational exuberance". My investment philosophy centers around the concept of maintaining higher equity exposures during rising or BULL markets and lower equity exposures during market corrections or BEAR markets.
To accomplish the goal of "tactical asset shifting" I use technical analysis. As a client, you choose the extent to which you want to employ risk controls on your wealth. Some manage their entire portfolio using RISK CONTROLS and some employ RISK CONTROLS on only a portion of their portfolio.
It is always your choice because it is your money. If you would like to learn more about how I use RISK MANAGEMENT tools please feel free to contact me and we can set a time to meet and discuss.
