Investment Philosophy: Keep It Simple & Succeed

Make it simple and succeed or be dragged to the bottom with complications. Sol Palha 


Investment Philosophy

Our investment philosophy is short, simple and sweet……… It encompasses the following objectives.

Objective # 1  Make the investment process as simple as possible

Our goal over the years has to been to continuously simplify our investment strategy.  Investing should be fun, especially in this day and age where most individuals have less and less time on their hands to do the things they truly want.  Thus, It has been our focus to work on a simple and yet effective strategy on making this complicated process as effortless as possible. To achieve this objective, we combined mass psychology, technical analysis and key aspects of fundamental analysis to identify important market turning points.  This trio has enabled us to turn what is viewed by many as a complex subject into one that is exceptionally undemanding, and one that entails little to no stress. Please click on the following two links to find out why fundamental analysis and mechanical systems, in general, do not work as standalone tools.

Objective # 2 Identify the Trend

The trend is identified with our highly effective and reliable Trend Indicator.  If the trend is up then we open long positions and vice versa.   This indicator took over 15 years to perfect, but the wait was worth it. The Trend Indicator is so effective, that it has made it almost dangerously simple to invest in the markets.  All we need to do is identify the direction the market is trending in, open a position and then sit back and relax. In other words, the mountain comes to Mohammed.

The trend indicator is simple and easy to follow:

This is the simplest aspect of our Investment Philosophy: as long as the trend is bullish,  every pullback ranging from mild to wild should be viewed through a bullish lens.

If the trend is up, then the general strategy is to use pullbacks to open long positions; the stronger the pullback the greater the buying opportunity.  It cannot get any simpler than this. We have backtested this indicator with over 50 years worth of data and it has never failed to identify key market turning points. The beauty of this indicator is that it does not try to identify the exact top or bottom.  Thus, once the market direction is determined, we have plenty of time to act.  There is no need to rush or panic and we can change our investment strategy with little to no stress.  For more details on the trend indicator please click here

Objective # 3 The Selection process

We combine mass psychology, technical analysis and a bit of fundamental analysis to determine whether we will get into a play or not.  We mainly focus on the Psychological and technical aspect of the stock and or index in question.   To date, this strategy has proved to be invaluable.

1) The structure and trend of the most popular indices S&P, Dow and Nasdaq are examined.  Under the market commentary section, the overall trend of the market is examined and discussed.  If the trend is up, then index traders are told to view pullbacks as buying opportunities and strong pullbacks as even better buying opportunities.  Our instructions are concise and simple.

2) Once the overall trend of the market is identified, we then issue plays that are poised to benefit the most from the stated trend.  If the trend is up, then we look for long plays.  If the trend is neutral, we still long issue plays, albeit fewer plays; for until the trend turns negative we will not short the markets. Even when it turns negative, the advice to conservative players is to sit on the sidelines.

We focus on sectors that the Trend indicator has turned bullish on and vice versa.   The next stage is to zoom in on plays that fall under the categories listed below.  You can click on each of the categories for more details.  Many services charge upwards of $1000 a year for each of the categories listed below. At the Tactical Investor, you get all this and more at an incredibly affordable and reasonable price.

Objective # 4  Get into the strongest plays

Once the trend is identified, we select plays that will perform the best in the direction identified by the trend.  If the trend is up, we will look for the best stocks to open long positions in, and vice versa. It is important to note that we do not rely on,  nor do we use simple technical analysis tools/indicators.  We employ a combination of proprietary tools and Technical Indicators that we have modified, almost all of which have a psychological component built-in.   This simple strategy has proven to be very effective to date.  As you can see our investment philosophy is simple, sweet and efficient. Spot the trend and ride it to the end
