Factoring in Doomsday

Because of your small entry quantum, you are always liquid.

That’s how you have defined the strategy.

What happens when there’s a market crash?

Your existing folio takes a hit.

You’ve been buying with margin of safety.

Because of your small entry quantum strategy, your hit is not hitting you.

Your focus is elsewhere.

It is on the bargains that the crash has created.

You keep targeting these with your fresh entry quanta.

You keep getting margin of safety.

Suddenly you realise, that you like it.

You like being in bargain area.

You like the sale that’s going on.

It won’t always be so.

There will be times that you won’t be getting any margin of safety whatsoever.

Then, you realize another thing.

You’re not afraid of a crash…

…because…

…you are ready, to pick more.

What has empowered you?

Margin of safety.

Small entry quanta.

Controlled level of activity.

Great fundamentals.

Great managements.

Quality.

Crashes come. Crashes go.

You’ll keep buying stocks with the above criteria as per your outlined strategy, and you’ll keep adding on to your purchases with small entry quanta.

It’s not hurting you, because the money you’re putting in has been defined in such a manner.

Your mind has digested this definition, and your strategy is in place.

The market being down while you buy is a requirement for your strategy to be successful in the long run.

It is a good thing for you. It is not a bad thing.

It takes a while to realize this.

The One Thing You Can Only Find Out About Due Diligence

Working hard and delving deep leads to…

… exhaustion.

I wish to call this positive exhaustion.

It’s serving a purpose.

You may wish to rest.

Follow your instinct.

Rest.

Nature has stopped you from working beyond a point.

Work beyond that point could be counter-productive. That’s what your system feels from within. Listen to it.

How long are you going to stay away?

As long as your system baulks at pending due-diligence.

When do you get back?

When your system looks forward to pending due-diligence once again.

This way, the quality of work upon your return will be A+.

That will lead to high-quality investment.
