In case you missed it, below are all of the observations we shared this week. When there are more directional trend changes and volatility, I find more asymmetries to write about. That’s because I look at markets through the lens of “what has changed”?
When I observe more divergence between markets and trends, I see more asymmetries to share.
When global markets are just trending up together and quiet, investor sentiment is usually getting complacent, I typically point it out, since that often precedes a changing trend.
All of it is asymmetric observations; directional trends and changes I see with a tilt.
The opposite is symmetry, which is a balance. Symmetry doesn’t interest me enough to mention it.
When buying interest and selling pressure are the same, the price doesn’t move.
When risk equals the return, there is no gain.
When profit equals loss, there is no progress.
In all I do, I’m looking for Asymmetry®.
I want my return to exceed the risk I take to achieve it.
I want my profits to far surpass my losses.
I want my wins to be much greater than my losses.
I want more profit, less loss.
You probably get my drift.
