If you are interested in trading or investing in the futures, currency, or stock markets, let me warn you: We will be discussing perspectives and viewpoints that might leave some readers angry and offended.
- Lets face facts: The mainstream investment and trading viewpoint has failed. On what? Pretty much everything. The financial spin-masters sell the false notion that everyone in the market can be a winner. Sorry, but it simply is not true. There are too many paper dollars chasing too few legitimate investment opportunities. What we are left with is a series of bubbles, deflations, manias and panics that wreak havoc on “mainstream” investors and traders – while a few walk away with large profits.
- Conventional market wisdom is that traders need a roaring bull market in order to make money. As a result, the mainstream spends countless hours guessing about the beginning and ending points of “bull” and “bear” markets. Yet, we doubt these pontifications have helped even a single trader or investor make sound decisions. The 90′s and mid-2000′s bubbles (stock market and real estate) might have been good investment climates, yet they ultimately proved to be giant ponzi schemes fueled by easy money fed policy, a reckless financial sector, and a public ravenous for investment returns. Once again a small number walked away with riches while the majority of participants were hosed.
- The ramifications of the debt crisis(es) are hard to understand because they are covered in a misleading way. The simple truth that is seldom considered: The public and private debts that make up the “debt crisis” are an asset on someone else’s balance sheet. The huge quantity of paper-money assets that are such a significant part of the wealth of individuals, banks, and corporations are the flip side of the “debt problem” that is suffocating our economy.
- What does it all mean? The debt crisis ultimately means that the majority of paper asset holders, (And this includes the humble social security recipient just as much as the multimillionaire investing in Tax free municipal bonds) must ultimately face significant losses in terms of real purchasing power. Why? Because not enough real wealth (and income derived from real wealth creation) is being created to fund all of those inflated financial assets and their corresponding cash flows.
- And most importantly: Difficult conditions should not equal cynicism. Those who give way to cynicism and grow disheartened will only be missing out. At NAS Trading LLC, we firmly believe that enormous opportunities exist (and will continue to exist) for those who are willing to seize them.
NAS Trading LLC seeks to analyze current conditions and to profit.
- Yet unlike the great mass of market commentators, our starting premise is that we must be honest about our own limitations and perspective. Each trading strategy or investment idea is merely a hypothesis that must be tested in the markets. When a hypothesis is no longer useful or has been falsified, it must be discarded. Taking losses and being wrong is part of the process that clears the way for future gains – the opportunity cost of hanging around with mistaken ideas is just too high.
- We seek to capitalize on market price fluctuations that are often driven by the fear, greed, and panic of other investors. The primary (but not exclusive) approach we take to trading is what most call, “technical analysis.” However, we are more likely to speak in terms of volatility, momentum and mean reversion.
- We seek to be investors in, cash flow producing assets at a reasonable valuation. Why be an investor when the markets are so volatile? Two words: Property rights. When you own enough of the right kind of property, you are wealthy. Amazingly, we live in a capitalist economy yet few people truly understand this. The winners in a capitalist economy focus their efforts on creating, obtaining, and improving property interests. You might have a great income, but unless and until you are focused on building up your property interests, It s next to impossible to pull ahead.
- Trading and Investing fit together nicely as part of a plan. Currency and futures trading profits are re-invested to grow paper assets. These paper assets can then be diversified into longer term investments (Cash flow producing assets). To complete the circle, trading strategies have the potential to make gains when long term investments are doing poorly and add diversification to an overall portfolio. Second, in both we seek a positive expected value on our decisions. By that, I mean we seek to (on average) get back more than a dollar for each dollar invested.
- The NAS Service focuses on presenting a steady stream of investing/trading strategy ideas across a broad spectrum of assets classes – Wherever we believe opportunity exists. This “Macro” approach creates a unique value proposition for subscribers.
Targeted benefits for members include:
- Approach any market and apply price-action based techniques that will maximize your chance of trading profitably on a consistent basis.
- Execute on strategies without fear or second guessing. No more hesitation, no more of the, “would have, could have, should have” thinking that haunts most traders.
- Approach any market and instantly spot favorable risk-reward trading opportunities. You will learn within seconds of looking at a chart what for most other traders is simply impossible to figure out… No mater how much time they spend.
- Zero in on favorable risk/reward setups, so that you will no longer be confused about which markets offer the greatest opportunity.
- Understand why most struggling traders are actually working too hard. Yes, it is true: “Working hard” at the wrong things is one of the primary reasons newer traders consistently lose money.
- NAS Trading LLC strategy reports usually focus on a few markets or market sectors at a time, and the selection of markets covered is expected to change as opportunities change.
Wealth Builder Stock Report coverage includes:
- Special situation stocks that look interesting: Small caps, corporate events, solid companies whose value has been beaten down do to wall street’s myopic focus on quarterly earnings.
- Natural resource stocks – We prefer stocks with ownership or legal claim to large resource tracts, or ownership of regulated transportation assets
- Growth at a Reasonable price – Seeking to pay a reasonable amount for stocks with strong historic and potential growth – These stocks are usually NOT found in the glamor industries that steal all the headlines (This is NAS Trading LLC’s favorite long term strategy).
- Large cap dividend growth stocks – global companies with strong prospects for continued dividend growth
- Strategic/speculative stock trade in momentum type stocks
- NAS Trading provides a list of current favored stocks (Usually between 10-20 names) and monthly reports highlighting individual companies.
Our goal is to provide you with a regular stream of investing and trading strategy ideas that have the potential to make you money – both over the short and long term. New Strategy Trading reports come out once a week, and wealth builder stock reports are published once a month.
