Queens Birthday Celebrations!

Hi from everyone at Port Phillip Publishing,

With the Queen’s Birthday public holiday in all Australian states and territories bar Queensland and Western Australia, the ASX is closed today. The Port Phillip Publishing office in Albert Park, Melbourne is closed for the day (which means so too are our working from home mantles!).

We’ll return tomorrow. Until then, thanks for being a part of Money Morning, and in the meantime feel free to catch up on some of our most popular articles over the last few months:

If you’re in the parts of Australia celebrating the Queen’s Birthday, we hope you enjoy your long weekend!

Greg Canavan is a Feature Editor at Money Morning and Head of Research at Fat Tail Investment Research.

He likes to promote a seemingly weird investment philosophy based on the old adage that ‘ignorance is bliss’.

That is, investing in the Information Age means you have all the information you need at your fingertips. But how useful is this information? Much of it is noise and serves to confuse, rather than inform, investors.

And, through the process of confirmation bias, you tend to read what you already agree with. As a result, you often only think you know that you know what is going on. But, the fact is, you really don’t know. No one does. The world is far too complex to understand.

When you accept this, your newfound ignorance becomes a formidable investment weapon. That’s because you’re not a slave to your emotions and biases.

Greg puts this philosophy into action as the Editor of Crisis & Opportunity. As the name suggests, Greg sees opportunity in a crisis. To find the opportunities, he uses a process called the ‘Fusion Method’, which combines traditional valuation techniques with charting analysis.

Read correctly, a chart contains all the information you need. It contains no opinions or emotion. Combine that with traditional stock analysis and you have a robust stock-selection strategy.

With Greg’s help, you can implement a long-term wealth-building strategy into your financial planning, be better prepared for the financial challenges ahead, and stop making the basic, costly mistakes that most private investors do every time they buy a stock.
