Investment Strategies

No hay comentarios :


There are many investment strategies, and I think none of them is ideal for everyone. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, risks and profitability targets. Each investor must choose the strategy or strategies that best suit their needs, desires and philosophy of life, depending on multiple factors. There is no need to choose a single strategy as  we can combine several strategies such as those presented here or elsewhere.


First we must distinguish between investment styles and investment strategies. The investment style you could be asssociated with the type of car and the investment strategy with the specific vehicle. When someone wants to buy a car must first decide whether to purchase a minivan, a convertible, a sports car, etc. This would be the equivalent to choose the investment style. If you decide that you want  a convertible then the next step is picking a Mercedes SLK, Porsche Boxster, BMW Z4, etc. This would be the equivalent of the investment strategy. And, as happens with cars, it is a good idea that each investor customize the chosen strategy to fit your needs and goals in the same way that a car buyer would choose, for example, certain extras, colors, engine etc.

Some of the most popular styles of investment are:
When several strategies are used it is advisable to have a separate account for each strategy so that they are clearly separated and the results can be tracked and analyzed in each case. In no case should be transferred money from the strategies that work well to the accounts with strategies producing bad results to cover losses.
