This Interview was previously published on Michael’s excellent ShiftingShares website and he has kindly agreed that it can sit on both our sites. He has many quality interviews on his website and make sure you pick up a copy of his FREE ebook – there is a link at the top of my ‘Weekly Performance’ page. You can find Michael’s website here:
I have had a link to this Interview sat on my Homepage for ages but I am quite confident a lot of Readers won’t have noticed it and that is probably even more true for people who are new to this whole WD silliness. So it seemed a good idea to create this as a Blog so it sits in the Archive and people can go back to it if they fancy another dose at any point in the future.
I am extremely grateful to Michael for providing this Guest Blog and making my life easier this week, which has also enabled me to make very good progress on the Stock blog I am working on. I am sure most Readers will already know of Michael as these days he is a huge celebrity in the Private Investing and Trading world with regular articles in Investors Chronicle and SharePad etc.
Michael has a Website and if you go to the ‘Weekly Performance’ page on WD1 you should find an image of his FREE eBook and if you click on that you will be taken to his site. The book is well worth reading and of course I am biased because I was involved in the latter stages of proof-reading and tweaking it. You can find him on Twitter as @shiftingshares.
So big THANKS to Michael for letting me share this with WD Readers and I hope you all enjoy it.
This is the Second Part in a small Series of just a couple of Blogs and you probably need to read Part 1 first for this to really make much sense. You can find it here:
This is personally a tough one for me. I am fascinated by Macroeconomics and Politics and as a result there is a huge problem that I most likely give far too much weight to Macro issues when it comes to managing my Portfolio. I envy people who just seem to be able to blindly ignore Macro and as much as I try to do it, I just tend to find something in the Outlook that worries me.
I am sure that in much of my scribbles over the years I have touched on the subject of ‘Over-thinking’ but perhaps not really brought it all together in one blog that hopefully puts the subject nicely to bed. The essence is that I get a strong sense that I have spent many many years learning things about Stocks and Markets and Investing and Trading, and all the related stuff, but it is only in more recent years that I have been actively trying to ‘un-learn’ much of the stuff I know and be a lot more basic and elemental in my approach.
Less is More.
Keep it simple.
Complex is bad.
