Let me skip over what I did when I didn’t know what I was doing. I have read about 300 books on trading, investing, economics, psychology, antropology and the like. If you want to invest start reading Stan Weinstein. There’s not much more you need to know to get a nice head start. Next to that I could mention my articles on position sizing and risk control. But they can get a bit technical at certain point. But I’m currently rewriting them for beginners and a broader audience. So stay tuned here as I will post more articles on what matters if you want to make money investing. The good news is that it’s actually very simple.
It is my idea of reworking my advice and material into a book. I actually published a trial draft in Dutch and promptly sold almost a 1000 copies. So that convinced me to get to it. At a later date I will call for reviewer and beta reader on social media like this one.
One last piece of advice: if your new to the game, DO NOT listen to stock tips or investment advice from the financial industry. In the former case remember that the most expensive advice is for free in investing, in the latter case always remember that people in the financial industry preach rather than practice. There money is never on the line.
So just stay tuned as more is coming.
