…spoils the curry.
Specifically with regard to Equity…
…one should never, never be in a hurry.
…there will always be a correction.
You will get an entry.
Wait for the right entry.
You will, eventually, get a prime exit.
Wait for the time.
Make time your friend.
Take it out of the equation.
In the small entry quantum strategy, time is, by default, taken out of the equation.
It loses its urgency as a defining factor, for us, psychologically.
We don’t have any immediate timelines.
We go with…
When opportunities appear…
When they don’t…
…we don’t act.
Most of the time…
…we don’t act.
Then there are black swans, and we act many times in a row. Like now.
Action, or lack of it, depends on what’s happening.
We don’t force action.
Because we have all the time in the world. We’ve made it our friend, remember.
We know that we’ll get action…
We conserve liquidity and energy for when action comes.
You see, when the pressure of a time-line is gone, quality of judgement shoots up.
We make superior calls.
Of course we make numerous mistakes too.
However, the quantum going into the mistake is small. This is the small entry quantum strategy, remember.
Once we’ve made a selection mistake in an underlying, and have realised this, we don’t shoot another quantum chasing our error. Instead we let it be, and wait for a prime exit from our error. It will come.
We keep going into identified underlyings not falling into the error category, with small quanta.
Many, many times, we make a price-error. Price going against us after entry is a price-error, because the market is always right. It’s us who are wrong when things go against us.
Never mind. After a price-error, we enter the same underlying with another quantum, and this time we get a better price. Once gain one observes the friendliness of time, even after price has gone against us, all because of our small entry quantum strategy.
When price is going in our favour, we might not enter after a level. Though we’re not getting further entries in the underlying, appreciation is working in our favour.
It’s a win-win on both sides of the timeline for us…
…because we’ve made time our friend.
