I prefer a consistent, sustainable approach that can yield between 1.5% to 3% each and every month. That typically puts me on pace to make anywhere from 18% to 36% on an annualized basis, which is far ahead of what I would expect to make by using other “conservative” strategies like index or mutual fund investing, where fund managers are content to keep pace with a stock market that has averaged around 10% per year for the last 25 years. For your info,95% of fund managers do not beat the index.
My market and trading experience, I started my very first trade in in 2007 just before the market crash. I know how that feels like and I remember asking my dad why is he so calm and throwing more $$ in. I thought he was crazy, like all sons do anyway. I expanded my personal investing into options trading in 2012, and taught technical and fundamental investing techniques to so many investors.
Having done almost everything in the book, as mentioned, my best results have come by having fewer moving pieces in my trades, not more. Market price is something we can’t control. We focus on things we can control like risk mitigation and the defensive nature of options.
Remember your investment thesis when you first started, keep a investment journey log, and reflect years down. You will probably get what I’m trying to say with more experience. Experience is something you can’t study or buy. Have a good weekend while I'll be working at an event with lots of good looking people haha.
