What's true about the markets? First and foremost, that supply and demand drives everything. All market movements, whether second-by-second or multi-year, result from imbalances of supply and demand. Identifying and acting on these imbalances is at the core of all that we do.
Concentrating on supply and demand allows us to avoid the traps and pitfalls that await advisors who rely on predictions, forecasts, opinions and academic theories of how the market ought to act.
"It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future." - Yogi Berra
Fortunately, predicting the future is absolutely unnecessary. More than enough information is available from "what is" - so much so that we can ignore all the futile attempts at predicting the future and instead concentrate wholly on the indisputably true facts available to us at any given time.
Just the facts, ma'am
The 1950's-era TV show "Dragnet", featuring the actor Jack Webb as Sgt. Joe Friday, eliminated guesswork and speculation from his investigations by employing his signature phrase, "just the facts, ma,am". We try to emulate Sgt. Friday in our fact-based market analysis.
Does our rejection of predictions and forecasts mean that we think we are better than or smarter than everyone else? No! We simply recognize that our own attempts at doing the impossible - predicting the future - would be no more successful than anyone else's.
The Good News
The good news is that prediction-based investing can be completely replaced by fact-based investing - and with much better results.
Everything we need to know in order to make profitable investments can be determined by an analysis of current market facts, with a particular emphasis on measurements of supply and demand.
