The average investor doesn't have much of a chance when pitted against full-time professional day traders and powerful "black box" high-frequency trading computer algorithms that hedge funds use. Many investors also fail to invest long enough in the markets.
Well-intentioned investors often spend countless hours sifting through the latest market research trying to pick winners. But, what most investors don’t realise is that investing in the stock market is a long game and diversification is the key to success.
The tortoise wins the race. The idea is to get rich slowly by investing over your lifetime.
It’s difficult and risky to invest in the market on a short term basis and expect positive returns. It depends on too many factors and by investing carefully over your lifetime, this allows time for your portfolio recover from the years where there may be significant losses.
It’s also risky to invest in a single market or even a handful of markets. Many people I know love to invest in technology, which is fine, but in order to become a successful investor, you'll need to learn to reduce risk by investing in other sectors for balance and risk reduction.
Do you trade only when you have the time to?
Why trade when you are tired or ill or lazy?
Why use a stock broker who trades on emotion? You also have to trust they have your best interests at heart and they are having a good day!
Why not use mathematical quantitative finance and automated trading to solve the risk/return puzzle and place trades for you?
... and guess what? It is cheaper than using a stock broker, never has a holiday, never gets ill, never complains and never gets tired.
