Beat the Market by
And how to create lucrative returns and control risk in today’s uncertain economic climate – by playing it safe
TRADING THE MOOD OF THE MARKET
I trade the underlying condition of the market not the symptoms of that condition. Fundamentals and technicals are merely a symptom of the underlying mood of the market. Like the ocean, financial markets have moods which can be affected by many variables. I pay attention to these variables and look for inter-market relationships globally. Enter your details below and follow my thoughts on the market in real time.
TRADING GLOBAL FINANCIAL MARKETS
I'll trade equities, commodities, currencies and bonds globally, whenever I see value.
I'm a value investor, each day I wake up I ask myself this question: where in the world are securities being offered at a discount to their real value, where is there panic buying and where is there panic selling. I position myself to be a provider of liquidity to panic buyers and sellers.
TRADING THE TALK
I walk the talk, everything I talk about I am actually doing in the market. I don't sit on the fence; rather I take a reasoned view and actually apply that view. I'm out to beat the market, to make money, not to necessarily be right or merely sound intelligent. I run three real portfolios, for all to see, each with three distinctive strategies. It is the performance of these portfolios that I should be judged rather than how intelligent I sound.
The dailytradingreport.com is about connecting you with other like-minded traders. It is a place where you share your views and view what other traders are thinking and doing.
TRADING THE REAL DEAL NOT THE NOISE
If most short-term movements in financial markets are nothing more than randomness and the majority of commentary is mere justification for what has just happened, then this commentary is nothing more or less than useless noise. I cut through the noise and determine what is really driving markets and the most important aspects that you must concentrate on to make money.
TRADING GLOBAL TRENDS
Financial markets are a lot more predictable than you think. This is due to the existence of trends. However, their existence is clouded by market volatility. It is said that to gain an edge over everyone else in financial markets you have to look at markets from a very different perspective. I look at the underlying currents in financial markets by using proprietary indices and published indices that are little known and not widely followed by traders.
TRADING IS ALL ABOUT APPLYING A VIEW
What separates winners from losers in trading isn't so much their views but rather the way in which they apply their views. Few commentators ever talk about application of trading strategy; I pay equal attention to both developing a view and applying that view.
SETTING YOU UP FOR SUCCESS
I'm not out to impress people or to tell them what they want to hear. I'm here to make money from trading. But it is not all about making money, I want to look at myself in front of the mirror and ask the question: have I done all I can to set other people up for success as a trader. Only when I see others sharing in my success will I feel complete as a trader.
TRADING FOR FUN
Know yourself, know the beach, know the surf conditions, get out there, pick your wave and ride it for all it is worth. Surfing is fun so why can't trading also be fun.
