Do watch this PBS documentary before its pulled down yet again. Link.Its certainly now worth the 100s of dollars people pay for old VHP copies of on e-bay.
My personal takeaways.
1.Take care to take money off the table periodically. Making back capital requires time, which is not renewable.
2.There is a certain inertia in stock markets. Even the realization of an eminent crash, doesn’t mean an immediate fall in prices. So contrarian bets at this stage make money.
3.Global capital spreads from asset class to asset class. Anticipating movements and manoeuvring oneself to take advantage of them could increase the rate of returns.
4.Takes an A-Type to be a trader. Certain sorts of things that stress B Types, are what A-Types live for.
