Hello. My busy time is over, and I am back to live blogging. On Tuesday evening, I was one of five speakers at the Towson University Investment Group’s International Market Summit. It was a fun time. Before I came, there was a list of 29 questions we could be asked, in addition to Q&A. As it was we were asked 6 of the questions in the main period, and 2 more in the Q&A.
I told the students at Towson that I would post a bunch of links to my blog for the questions asked that I have already answered. I will probably do a second post for the questions I am competent to answer that did not get asked.
Anyway, here goes:
1 Give us a short summary of things that keep you up at night and worry you in today’s markets.
2 How big of an impact do you see the unwinding of QE having on the US and global economy? In the event of inflation, how will markets react?
3 Give us some insight on how you behaviorally reduce the impact that a volatile market has on your investing strategy?
The Portfolio Rules Work Together Rules 7 & 8 are particularly important for knowing when to sell.
4 Provide some tips to young investors starting out looking for both career and investment advice.
5 Should the current monetary policy of increasing the money supply be continued?
No. We should take losses and let the system reset. Get the government out of the macroeconomics business.
6 Do you believe that High Frequency trading helps add liquidity in the market or that it distorts the market.
Other useful stuff that we discussed:
That’s all for now. I will follow this up, answering most of the questions not asked at the Towson University Investment Group’s International Market Summit.
More to come…
