All you have to do to be as rich as Buffet. If you've ever looked at Berkshire Hathaways Book Value growth rate, you'll see that all it was doing was beating the S&P by 10% annually. Specifically, this was my opinion, which may be a little biased for obvious reasons: <i>Anyway, my opinion is stick with me on Pairs Trading QID QLD Scalper or go to www.collective2.com/go/pairsqidqld . Look at the S&P, and then decide if that's where you'd like to take your trading, because that's what an S&P beating system's curve looks like, which comes as a surprise to the paper traders on the site. Not that subscribing will give you instant riches, but that I am confident I'll beat the S&P significantly over the next 20 years. </i> Some people had asked me what system I'd recommend, but I'm not going to really recommend anything. The reason is that finding a system that beats the S&P500 by a wide margin isn't that hard to do. It's accepting that you will be correlated significantly with the S&P that gets most people in a hang up. System's are either death by thousands of papercuts or the jumbo loss at once. If you build one to not be either of those, you should be all right and attain your goal of beating the S&P by 10% annually. In 40 years, you'll be as rich as Buffet. Good luck, and I'm open to comments.
