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 Commentary: More on Trade and Other Wars From Bridgewater Associates CEO's LinkedIn blog Ray Dalio - Ray Dalio Commentary: More On Trade And Other Wars
Summary: Nowadays, we can’t avoid considering geopolitical developments because they are playing a greater than normal role in affecting economies and markets. Recent geopolitical developments have led me to raise my probabilities of trade and other types of wars, such as capital wars, cyber wars (and possibly even shooting wars). To be clear, I’m not saying they’re probable, and I’m not sure that my assessment is right. I’m just saying that it seems to me that the odds have increased relative to where they were, and I am just sharing the thinking that leads me to that conclusion. More...

Ray Dalio (Trades, Portfolio) wrote a fabulous article called “A U.S.-China Trade War Would Be a Tragedy” a few days ago. The topic of tariffs and the possibility of a trade war have been the media headlines these days. As always, it’s great to hear from someone as reasonable and intelligent as Dalio sharing his thoughts on the subject. More...

Ray Dalio: A US-China Trade War Would Be a Tragedy From Bridgewater Associates co-chief investment officer Ray Dalio's LinkedIn communications Ray Dalio - Ray Dalio: A US-China Trade War Would Be A Tragedy
The markets’ reactions to newly imposed tariffs and, more importantly, the possibility of a US-China trade war convey appropriate tip-of-the-iceberg concerns of what a trade war would mean for the US, China, and world economies and markets. To me, these concerns are reminiscent of the markets’ first reactions to the possibility of a military war with North Korea—i.e., the seemingly aggressive posture of Donald Trump conjures up pictures of war that are very scary, so the markets react, but that doesn’t mean that such a war is likely (at least in the near term).
