Commodities Vs. Stocks


At times I prefer commodities over stocks. There are times where commodities should be shorted. It just depends on the supply and demand situation, where the world is, that cycle that is going on, on that particular point in time.

Experienced Commodities Traders know that they will be wrong lots of times


Your personality makes a difference. You have to look into the mirror and be absolutely candid about your own attitude toward risk, your ability to admit to having made a mistake, and your willingness to stray from the herd. If you have trouble admitting you are wrong, commodities will be as hard a school as any other investment area. Experienced commodities traders know that they will be wrong lots of times.

The Best way to Make Money is to find something Cheap that I like

I, for example, am the world`s worst trader. The best traders are maestros of timing. Knowing when to get in and get out, they enter and exit markets fearlessly. Over decades I have learned the best way for me to make money is to find something cheap that I like , take a position, and hold it for the long term. i am a lousy trader, and I avoid "short-term" investments.

Algorithmic Trading


There are always new ways to invest, there always have been since the beginning of time. And these guys that do algorithmic trading, I mean, if they know what they are doing, if it works for them, they should do it.

I would not have a clue how to do it, but that does not mean other people should not do it and should not continue to do it. It adds some liquidity to the market and I am sure it is going to cause problems at times, most things do, eventually, when they are overdone. But that is what the market is.
