Auto Strategies Befit This Age

Create an asset. 
 
Move on.
 
Create next asset. 
 
Move on.
 
So on and so forth. 
 
Very soon, you are sorted for life. 
 
What is an asset?
 
An asset puts money in your pocket.
 
As opposed to a liability…
 
…which takes money out of your pocket. 
 
Therefore, we are in the business of creating assets. Period. 
 
Once an asset is created, it becomes a strategy on auto…
 
…till it needs handling for a bit. 
 
You handle for a bit, make it go on auto again, and then you move on. 
 
When it needs handling, it will tell you. It will scream. 
 
When it doesn’t need handling, it won’t bother you. 
 
At these times, it will silently put the money in your pocket, even if you’re too busy looking elsewhere. 
 
The idea is to get as many such assets in place as possible, in a balanced and no-nonsense fashion. 
 
This is the age of short attention-spans.
 
Creation of an asset requires short attention-span focus, mostly. 
 
Auto strategies befit this age. 
 
Go for it.

The Why of Movement

Spread.

Buyer.

Seller.

Willingness to buy.

Willingness to sell.

Buying pressure.

Selling Pressure.

Which is more?

Willingness leads to pressure…

…if buyer or seller is serious about it.

Willingness stops at willingness and does not lead to pressure when buyer or seller is in two minds.

Back to…

…buying pressure…

… and selling pressure.

When overall buying pressure outdoes overall selling pressure…

…prices move up.

When overall selling pressure outdoes overall buying pressure…

…prices move down.

We Don’t Want Anymore

There comes a time…

…when we don’t want anymore.

Why has this happened?

It’s a spin-off from our small entry quantum approach.

We’ve been buying at sale prices, with small entry quanta, each day, a quantum a day.

A groove has been set.

After umpteen failed attempts, prices break through.

An interesting thing happens to us.

Slightly higher prices start to pinch us.

As prices go even higher…

…our mood is off, and…

…we don’t want anymore.

From a strategy perspective, this is the best thing that could have happened to us.

We will not be buying as margin of safety vanishes and remains vanished.

Our want will be triggered once more, when margin of safety returns.

This has not taken place for free.

It is an indirect result of our painful sticking to a small entry quantum approach.

And Now, We’re Not Looking

Who’s not looking?

We. Stock people.

What are we not looking at?

Wrong question. We’re always looking at stocks.

Ok. What are we not looking for?

New stocks.

Why?

Our magic number has been hit.

What’s this magic number?

That’s the number of stocks we wish to handle.

Is it the same for everyone?

No, it’s different for everyone.

How does one arrive at this number?

Through hit and trial. Whatever that works. Where you feel good, that’s your number.

So, will your portfolio now stagnate?

No. Most definitely not. If a stock is not interesting anymore, it can always be replaced.

How does one go about doing that?

Wait for a market high. Then discard the stock you are not interested in anymore.

And how does one find a new stock in a scenario where one is not looking?

You let the stock find you.

Meaning?

You’re not looking, but something eventually hits you in the eye.

Aaahhhh.

Then you dig deeper. If all criteria are met…

…you enter.

Rriiighht….!
