Speculation Rules - The Book

This will be the place to set up ideas for an outline of a book.


Just in case I get ambitious and want to attempt a chapter or two


First some of the concepts to be explored.


Speculation Rules

Discover Your Personal Speculation System


why speculation is better than investment ( chapter 1)

if you are not worried - you are in danger

when to follow your (gut) instincts

embrace risk and manage it

there is a speculation style that fits you best - discover it!

do what you know to be right even when it feels wrong

economists exist to make weathermen look good

wealth is made through concentration

wealth Is preserved through diversification

speculation success is not linear

money or bank roll management

investing and (not just in) your future

ignorance and the investor

you're not rich unless you can give without counting

keep losses small (most investors hang on far too long.)

investor's quiz

let profits run (most investors want to grab any profit.)

offshore investing / offshore cautions

your evolving self concept in a devolving world

the self-tailored society

life is not linear

If you are in a hole - stop digging, if the ship is sinking - get off

be careful how you fight back

how Wall Street works

no one can predict the future, how to improve your guesses

Fractals from history to Elliott and Mandelbrot, and beyond

avoid the crowd

manage your own money

always buy the book before you buy the investment

don't try for the first or last 10%

two steps forward - one back

personal sovereignty, PT

avoiding debt

If they call you - hang up

insurance and investments

hedge funds, futures, forex, real estate, etc

starting small - the learning curve - keep those early losses small

why success, particularly early success, is dangerous

retirement plans - start early

the macro financial environment

no one cares more about your personal finances than you do - unless they plan on stealing your money

inevitable is not the same as immediate

invest your thoughts first

prepare for change

follow the rules until you know it is time to break them

the eventual return of your money is more important than the promised return on your money.


One speculation we consistently endorse is to start your own business. Whether it is an internet marketing web site or a manufacturing plant you can add real value to your own life and the lives of others.

The risks and the rewards from creative entrepreneurship are greater, and of far more value to society, than illusions of security enslaving human cogs in the social machine. - Allan R. Wallace



There is one futures trading system I know that makes sense and can work - it is not exciting - but it will work if you work it. I'll give some details with appropriate warnings here.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." - Mark Twain
