Tackle Today: Empty Garden

February 6, 2019

By | 2 Comments

A gardener like that one, no one can replace. 

How successful traders and investors are born?

That is a million-dollar question. The search for the Holy Grail. The financial markets are, in a way, similar to a rainforest, like the Amazonia. People that are courageous but cautious, consistent and persistent will strive and survive, whereas the bold, uncautious and arrogant ones will be swallowed and will never be seen again.

Our answer to that question is simple: you must master the Holy Trinity of Trading. This is so important to us that we are dedicating the three next editions of the Trading Justice newsletter to the topic. Sign up so you won’t miss it. It’s free.

The first step is mastering Portfolio Design, which represents the balance inside the Trinity. A well-balanced and well-thought-out portfolio can work wonders. Like flowers in a garden, individual positions will perish. The contrary is also true and some positions will blossom and bloom in wonderful profits. The consolidated result counts much more than individual positions.

A skilled trader is also a skilled gardener of his/her own portfolio.

~ Johnny, can’t you come out to play in your empty garden. ~

Start with WHY

The Portfolio Design must start a philosophical questioning: WHY. There is no such thing as a perfect one-size-fits-all portfolio design out there because each one of us possesses a different WHY. That is when you need some guidance and the most appropriate will only come from a Mentor. Weve also covered this topic in great details in the System Development 101 series. Sit down with a Mentor and set your goals.
