Greg Canavan

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.

Could This Be the Start To A Bear Market?

The market is in the process of pricing in a Labor government. This means things like more renewable energy investment, a potential end to franking credit rebates for retirees, and an end to negative gearing on existing homes.

The Impact of Emotion on Stock Prices

Fundamentals impact investor psychology, and investor psychology has a big impact on asset prices. I’ve been writing a book on this and have recently reviewed the draft, so the concept of investor emotions having an impact on price is top of mind for me.

Why Trump Could Be Good for Gold

Yesterday I discussed the gold price and provided some reasons as to why the yellow metal could move higher in the months ahead. Let me emphasise the word could.

Australia is a Nation of Idiots

While the sale is still subject to a decision by the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB), Durie says that CKI, along with the 100% Chinese government owned State Grid, now control nearly all of Australia’s east coast energy distribution assets

Australia’s Energy Debate Just Went Nuclear

Victoria’s future energy supply is in a precarious position. Bass Strait gas reserves, which have long powered the state, are in decline. Additional gas needs must now travel down the pipeline infrastructure from up north. For a state with Australia’s fastest population growth, it’s not a great situation to be in.
