Improve Your Investing Returns The Easy Way

To tell anyone, especially a man, that he is doing something like a girl is not really the done thing.

Just think about it for a minute. You don’t go around telling a guy that he kicks a football like a girl. Nor would you tell him that he throws a cricket ball like a girl or that he hits like a girl. You just don’t do that unless you want to end up without any friends.

The Next Warren Buffett

A young investor recently asked my why stock markets fall when interest rates rise. He was referring, in case you haven’t already guessed, to the latest market chatter about the American Federal Reserve’s decision to start winding back the amount of cheap money that it pumps into the markets.

When we hear or read the term “risk” it is predominately perceived as negative or something to be avoided or a threat that we hope will not materialise. Risk is a fundamental part of life. It exists because we are uncertain of the outcome of a particular decision or course of action. There is always a certain degree of risk in any decision we make concerning our life, career and, of course, financial choices. In investing, however, risk is inseparable from performance. Rather than being desirable or undesirable, risk is simply necessary. Understanding risk is one of the most important aspects of financial education and we would be foolhardy to ignore its existence, especially when it comes to investing.
