    Would you take a trade in mid price range or are your entries mostly fading a degree of puke and panic. You do seem to have a good sense of where to look and when. Could you comment
    A bit on your process and what range stocks and assets you are following.
    Thanks.

  9. Thanks for asking this question...I invest mainly in boring low cost index funds but I do reserve a portion of my portfolio for special situations and my favorite special situation to invest in is market panics.

    I'll keep my eye on blue chips that I define broadly as large caps that consistently beat earnings and revenue estimates. I wait for these companies to stumble big before investing...so long as the mistake is correctable I am happy to wait out the volatility. I'll also apply this same strategy to sector indexes.

    The key to making this strategy work is having a very long time horizon...usually multiple years. I control risk by controlling position size. I never invest an amount of money I'm not comfortable losing 100% of, which keeps my risk calculation extremely simple. I'm usually way too early into everything but I'll also hold much longer which tends to even things out in the long run.
