Just a chart with the story of Price included -- Try to follow along and ask questions.
This should help you understand why Price is so critical to analysis. As opposed to EBITDA, P/E ratios, Insider purchases, Tariff wars, moon cycles, or whatever else we get shoved down our throats from news headlines.
Think about it this way, Price reflects all behavior from every investor without bias, ie, no one can hide in the Price chart of any instrument. This is because all participants investing are essentially showing their hand with respect to what they believe is going to happen in the instrument they stake a claim in. Remember, no one invests to lose money, but plenty of investors say they are doing one thing only to convince others to buy or sell a stock that they might want to be influenced in order to do the opposite, its as old as time ---> ENJOY
Let me know what you think and PLEASE don't take my word for it or judge me based upon a single qualification on a CV, or something I accomplished in middle school or even something from last year...we are only as good as our last challenge bested.
The truth is, if a so-called professional can't show you in real-time where a particular stock or market is headed, then they are guessing (and sadly most are because they have mastered a skill set in sales, relation building, or just a slick haircut, as opposed to reading the markets which can take a lifetime to develop).
If you don't believe, set up a time on the calendar for a "7 minute non-pitch" where you can pick a stock and I'll show you how to buy, sell or hold it like a hedge fund manager.
Or just keep making the same mistakes so the pros can keep taking your milk money. Either way --> It's Your Time, Your Money and Ultimately Your Choice.
We wish you the best on your journey to becoming a more opportunistic investor!
