“I like risk. I embrace risk.” -Turtle trader Curtis Faith
Risk is scary, to be sure, but it's a fundamental aspect of the investing world. Without it, profit would not exist. The trick is to accept, anticipate, manage, and mitigate risk. In other words, master it.
In Way of the Turtle, Curtis Faith revealed the extraordinarily successful trading system of the now-famous group of investors known as the Turtles. Now, in this highly anticipated follow up to that bestseller, Faith delves deeply into the risk-mastery strategies that made the Turtles the envy of the investing world.
Inside the Mind of the Turtles provides expert insight into how great traders combat the natural but counterproductive response to risk. Faith begins by examining the nature of risk and the human being's natural response to it. Then he outlines proven techniques for seizing control of it. You will learn how to:
Set your main focus on acquiring gains--not avoiding losses
Place equal importance on assets already spent and those still on hand
Judge the quality of decisions based on their inception rather than their outcome
Avoid drawing conclusions using too little information
You'll find valuable advice not only from Faith, but from some of the greatest financial minds on the scene today, including fellow Turtle Jerry Parker, venture capitalist Simon Olson, and Howard Lindzon, founder of the popular Web site, "WallStrip." Use their collective advice, and you'll find yourself approaching risk in ways you never dreamed possible.
In today's economy, controlling your aversion to risk is not just prudent--it's an absolute necessity. Economic turbulence more often than not leads to poor investment decisions. Inside the Mind of the Turtles will help you conquer the fears that can cripple even the most experienced investors out there.
