yeah but their strategy is, odds on, the one that makes the most money. Would you rather be richer or be entertained by great stories and salesmanship? I'll take the cash.
It really is that simple. Just tune out the noise generated by these so called “experts” and let go with the flow. You will be better off in the end.
yeah usually, But Maser claims to have beaten the markets handily for years and years by making market timing calls and choosing the right securities.
So that's where he's coming from.
the long term buy and hold investments have been the most profitable for me by a wide margin. I will adjust my leveraging exposure based on where i think we are in a market cycle, but just with a portion thereof, albeit, a significant portion. I suppose that is a long tern buy and hold, just with the ability to adjust the level of leveraging. The very little bit i actively trade might reap some small profits sometimes, but probably would make more if it had just left it invested.
So, i use a pyramid approach, with a wide base of stable investing as a base, and moving progressively riskier at the very peak.
