Chart of the Day

“If someone comes to you and says they only invest in risky assets, but guarantee you limited downside volatility, they are either extraordinary geniuses – and they’re are probably only two of them on the planet – or they are liars. If you are investing in assets with an annualized volatility of 20 percent to 40 percent, you’re inevitably going to take two or three decent hits to your NAV each year.” – Martin Taylor

Early Morning Update

Here are some of the key points we will be discussing and reviewing today in the Video Update and Webinar:
1. No real change in the context > POST.
2. Still plenty of short-term complacency > POST.
3. Bigger picture, focus on RTH and not the usual o/n shenanigans we have seen for years.
4. Rotation out of Tech ‘safe-haven’ and action in Small Caps. What this means for positioning and the bigger picture.
5. Month-end flows and possible re-balancing implications for the rest of the week.
6. Developments in Europe and what this means for the Euro trade.
7. Keeping an eye on USDCNH.
8. Possible turning point in Crude and on a broader level, for commodity currencies.

Positioning

POSITIONING: Heron stands in the blue estuary, Solitary, white, unmoving for hours. A fish! Quick avian darting; The prey captured.
People always ask how to follow Tao. It is as easy and natural as the heron standing in the water. The bird moves when it must; it does not move when stillness is appropriate.
The secret of its serenity is a type of vigilance, a contemplative state. The heron is not in mere dumbness or sleep. It knows a lucid stillness. It stands unmoving in the flow of the water. It gazes unperturbed and is aware. When Tao brings it something that it needs, it seizes the opportunity without hesitation or deliberation. Then it goes back to its quiescence without disturbing itself or its surroundings. Unless it found the right position in the water’s flow and remained patient, it would not have succeeded.
Actions in life can be reduced to two factors: positioning and timing. If we are not in the right place at the right time, we cannot possibly take advantage of what life has to offer us. Almost anything is appropriate if an action is in accord with the time and the place. But we must be vigilant and prepared. Even if the time and the place are right, we can still miss our chance if we do not notice the moment, if we act inadequately, or if we hamper ourselves with doubts and second thoughts. When life presents an opportunity, we must be ready to seize it without hesitation or inhibition. Position is useless without awareness. If we have both, we make no mistakes.
