Marcus Raiyat's Current Principles:
You have two core financial strategies in life - income and wealth generation. One is for sustaining your lifestyle, the other to compound your assets over time.
Volatility is an investor's best friend. If the market doesn't move, we have no opportunities. We, therefore, must understand what is driving price movements through thorough expectation and outcome analysis.
Self-discipline, goal setting, and grit will be the three main skills that determine whether your approach to the market allows you to gain profit.
Automated quantitative methods are now a minimum requirement, not a luxury, to maintain an edge on the market. It's the main reason Logikfx LITA Technology exists
