Pythagoras Investing returns for Mastermyne (MYE.AX)

MYE 2017

Why the retail investor is always the last to know

No one really wants to acknowledge that they sit on the reactionary side of trading but it’s something most investors have in common.  Investment decisions are usually a reaction to an event.

Here’s an example:  An event happens to a stock, you make the decision to buy/hold/sell. Generally this  decision is a reaction of yours or others to that event.  But everyone else makes the same decision with the information about the event.

This where every investor, big or small, comes unstuck.  Trying to react after the horse has bolted is a flawed investment strategy.

How do you overcome trading after the event?

Unless you are capable of analysing the mountains of data, you’re in for a tough emotional rollercoaster trading stocks. How much of your time do you dedicate to researching and predicting stock prices?  Whatever the answer is, its never enough.

How is Pythagoras different?

What if you traded before the event? How about buying before or at the start of a price rise? What about selling when the price is about to peak before the downturn? All with mathematical precision.

Pythagoras is looking when everyone else isn’t.  And it’s doing a more that the human mind can – without prejudice and human emotion.

Simply put, we are mathematically looking at stocks and predicting events through changes in volatility. We can then predict share price behaviour – and trade ahead of the events.

We are not scared of volatile markets as Pythagoras mathematically performs at its best in difficult markets.  There is no need for fear!  It predicts the events and buys or sells ahead of them!

Buy signals with a price and timing, and sell signals with timing!
