Have I Ever Been Wrong?

Post by Lobo on Mon 08 Aug 2016, 9:17 am


 
QUESTION: Have you ever been wrong?
HS
ANSWER: Since I am human, the obvious answer must be YES! I have stood up and explained at conferences that I made a bunch of money when I was 13 in the metals/coin market. My father thought I was too much of a speculator and told me I should be more conservative and invest in mutual funds. I listened to my father and bought Fidelity Trend at just about the top in 1966 and watched it crash. I turned to my father and asked: “Is this the way conservative people make their money?”
It was being WRONG that made me try to figure out what I did wrong. That is what interested me for there were several crash events in short order, 1966, 1970, 1973 and then 1980. Much of what I write about comes from the experience of being wrong. If we do not learn from our mistakes we are really foolish.
The purpose of developing the computer to do this is a recognition that NOBODY can trade based upon their “interpretation” of anything for they will interpret what they want to see. That is just the way it is. Socrates is in test mode. We are not finished porting everything over. It tends to catch the major trends because everything is functioning in a coordinated manner. There is noise where something will rally and fake someone out and then fall. That is what the markets do. If you get caught up in such swings you are trading on an emotional basis and that should be a warning.
This is why portfolio management is better than short-term. The more you trade typically the lower the profit. That is someone trying to prevent a loss and in the process create losses because they do not trade in the proper size to cope with the risk.
There are a lot of tricks to the trade. All come only from experience. Fund management is the classic trap. Someone can make say 20% with $1 million and lose with $10 million. Why? The more money the harder it is to get in and out. Look at the big hedge funds. The bigger they are, the lower the return in recent years.
