RiskyInstinct

Power of Investing lies in your Individual Method

Everything can be thought. But not everything can be learnt. Developing a risky instinct in investing is not something you learn. It’s something you are born with. Then you are given the power to share it. Agree? Probably not. It’s understandable. I went into stock trading not because I dig and sturdy deeply into companies’ financial and books at first hand, or mastering the art of options trading, rather I went into it simply because of self possessed gift of intuition to make risky calls that contradicts the majority, which often turn out favorably.

Investing is a game, not a gamble.

Contrary to the general method of investing, I buy a stock based on instinct then I start digging further in its books and financials to justify the instinctive decisions. Yes, I often lose. But yes, I often gain more. The reward comes from balances and checks that falls in favor of more profits at the end of the day. Take an example, on a 3 day stretch Oct 25th-28th, we all witnessed over 95% of stocks thrown downwards to a darkening red (nearing all time lows). Meanwhile, calls on Ford, GE , and Kodak (I made back in July when the market downgraded them to “Strong Sell”) kept a shiny bright green of blocks (upwards momentum). Now that was some risky calls that paid off.

So it begs to ask… What exactly is the rule in stock investing for winning profits? Are there standardized rules to follow? And are these rules created by the 10% of winners, and gets passed down for the mass to follow?

There’s the old saying: Read all that works, but never follow them, there’s a reason it only works for the less than 10%. (OK I made that up, but its true).

The power of investing lies in your individual method... not the market (standards).
