Investing Philosophy

These are some of Ray Dalio's life principles:
1. working for what I wanted, not for what others wanted me to do;
2. coming up with the best independent opinions I could muster to move toward my goals;
3. stress-testing my opinions by having the smartest people I could find challenge them so I could find out where I was wrong;
4. being wary about overconfidence, and good at not knowing; and
5. wrestling with reality, experiencing the results of my decisions, and reflecting on what I did to produce them so that I could improve. I believe that by following this approach I moved faster to my goals by learning a lot more than if I hadn't followed it. Read the complete file

Ray Dalio: Reflections on the Trump Presidency, One Week After the Election Bridgewater founder expects shift in markets that could persist for a decade Ray Dalio - Ray Dalio: Reflections On The Trump Presidency, One Week After The Election
Before and immediately after it was clear that Donald Trump had been elected, the markets (especially the stock market) had negative votes on the man (thinking he might be irresponsible), while after he got elected, the markets reacted to the man’s policies—so the correlations reversed. That shift was due to the changing complexion of market participants—those who drove the markets after his election were largely those who kept their powder dry until they saw the outcome and chose to process (and bet on) the policies themselves. As for us, we chose not to bet on whether or not he would be elected and/or whether or not he would be prudent because we didn’t have an edge in predicting these things. We try to improve our odds of being right by knowing when not to bet, which was the case. More...
