Mass psychology, technical analysis and investing


These sayings by Sol Palha illustrate how mass psychology is applicable to almost everything we do. From investing in the markets to the making of mundane decisions, mass psychology plays a critical role. Understanding how this simple but highly misunderstood field works, could make the difference between becoming a great investor to losing it all. The masses are almost always on the wrong side of opportunity; it is their desire to seek comfort by bonding with other individuals that always leads to their demise. The crowd can never win; to win in the markets you have to put the first principle of mass psychology to use immediately; this principle states that you should be wary when the crowd/masses are joyous and happy when they are not.  If you view things through the lens of mass psychology, then every disaster will be seen as nothing but a great investment opportunity. You will come to understand that disaster is the code name for opportunity.  Only the field of mass psychology focuses and emphasizes this key and vital factor.  At the Tactical investor, we have incorporated the most magnificent elements of mass psychology with the most powerful components of technical analysis to yield a system that is extremely robust and adaptable to trading in all market conditions. It is for this reason, we have called it the ultimate stock market timing system. The goal is not to identify the exact top or bottom, but to spot when a market is bottoming or topping. We do not aim for the exact bottom or top, that is an endeavour best reserved for monkeys.
