    Rev Shark:

    "The men whom I have seen succeed best in life always have been cheerful and hopeful men; who went about their business with a smile on their faces; and took the changes and chances of this mortal life like men; facing rough and smooth alike as it came."

    -- Charles Kingsley

    The great thing about the stock market is the inevitability of change. No matter how good or bad things are at the moment, you can rest assured that they will be different in the not-too-distant future. It is because of this cycle of constant transition from euphoria to despair and back again that the market offers such great rewards to the astute investor.

    Most everyone recognizes the cyclical nature of the stock market but like so many other things in life it is timing that separates great investors from mediocre ones. The market doles out its harshest abuse for those who correctly see the big market picture but fail to accurately time it. Being right is as good as being wrong if you arrive too early or too late.

    Despite timing being so key to market performance, market participants are drawn, like a moth drawn to a flame, to the sport of predicting that a change is near. Over and over again we see the pundits declare that the current trend has gone too far and is on the verge of a reversal. They urge us to hurry and jump in or risk missing the big shift that is likely to occur at any moment.

    Instead of waiting for clear evidence that the trend is actually changing, we rush in and deploy our capital in the hopes that market prognosticators have acquired a new HDTV crystal ball and now can see the future clearly. Aside from change, another great certainty of the market is that the commentators will be right just enough to tempt you but wrong often enough to cost you.

    So what are we to do? How do we contend with an ever-changing market and the difficulty of prediction? My suggestion is to not anticipate change but to wait for it to occur and then fully embrace it. Rather than constantly speculate about how, why and when the prevailing trend will change, deal with what is in front of you.

    The great advantage that small investors have is the ability to move quickly. They don't need to anticipate like some elephantine fund that must move billions of dollars but also is required to stay heavily invested at all times. We are taught that we should invest our money in the same way Fidelity or Vanguard invests theirs. That is the thinking that dooms most individual investors to mediocre returns.

    The market is obviously in a very strong downtrend right now. Respect that fact. There is no reason to rush in and load up on stocks that are struggling. Bargains have a way of becoming even better bargains.

    When the market undergoes a change in trend there will be plenty of time to buy your favorites. It doesn't matter that you missed buying the low tick; it is far more important that you protected your capital and were in position to capitalize on things when the inevitable change occurred. Profitable rallies last weeks or even months. So what if you aren't fully loaded at the moment of the exact turn? That sort of timing isn't worth the risk.

    After last weeks dismal performance we have a minor Monday morning bounce shaping up. News wires are fairly quiet. We have a huge amount of earnings reports due again this week but most of the big hitters are now out of the way and the bottom of the line-up is unlikely to have any huge impact.

    Stay patient, be careful and above all else protect that capital. Change will occur and your job is to make sure you are in position to make the most of it.

  • Negatiivsus on turul ka uue nädala alguses platsis, indeksid pöörasid pärast kergelt päeva alguse plussi kohe allapoole.

    Vaadake S&P ja Dow Jonesi selle aasta põhju (vastavalt 1076 ja 9852 punkti), need peaksid turule mõningast toetust pakkuma.
