Reflecting On 2015 & Looking Ahead

By Patricia Miller

As investors reflect on last year we here at Valuethemarkets have some of our own thoughts to share, 2015 has been a unique year filled with a unique set of circumstance’s. However one should not be to disheartened or disappointed by the events of the year but more learn to accept that the stock market holds all the ability to reward or ruin in one foul swipe. Investors crave success which in turn can only come from concise seismic mapping of quality companies, correct timing, adequate funding and a fortified strategy coupled to a diverse and highly motivated management team.

We believe that building a foundation to map companies regularly is the key to unlocking gains from the market, each day the market shows it’s hand by releasing regulatory news. contrary to this we often see monumental increases in the trade volume as the city begins to react to pending news, other common denominators are a heavy increase in social presence which are aligned to the forecast of material events or suggestion of insight into such events. The law of attraction plays a significant part in the decision-making process, we endorse an open mind however urge investors to double check each pocket of information at each step of the investment journey (whether as a buyer or seller.)

We expect further instability from the Macro climate, the world has become a particularly fragmented place to cohabit, Greece’s problems are only ever seemingly a scratch under the surface with China yet to stabilize its transient changes of supply to demand, observing the investment world lacks appeal to some although the smart operators out there understand the need for a compendious strategy to make steady progress, markets have existed as long as man (in some mild intellectual format).

Never rush into a position, observe trends, analyze macro events and then follow your own compass for direction in identifying a successful opportunity.

Good luck during 2016
