The global chaos this past week caused by the perceived problems with China is a graphic example of why our strategy works. Remember, we take advantage of irrationality, and this was available in large amounts in the week ended 28 August 2015.
Looking at the past week on a open/close basis you would have assumed that most of the leading world indices had a normal quiet week, most ending slightly up overall. The reality was panic in the middle of the week with investors seemingly dumping stocks in vast quantities only to find that, had they not got caught up in what must be termed the "media induced panic", they would have ended the week almost unchanged, instead of nursing huge losses in their stocks "fire sale".
Those who new and understood what was going on were presented with many terrific investment opportunities and will now be sitting on some healthy gains. Whether these gains will hold remains to be seen but at least you have yet another example of how perception and panic can create opportunity.
