Your Thoughts About The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

Recommended Posts

There is something about been the first. I am not sure, but i think that is the first known book about investment. The concept he explained in the book, is surely true and still valid till date, however, because of the book is too old, alot of things have changed and of course many of his techniques are quite outdated. nevertheless, it is a good book. Though there are lots of better books to read for this age investment.

You sound really disappointed by this book, I don't feel so. Here are a few taken from the 1973 Revised Edition of The Intelligent Investor that sits on my shelf:

 

Stocks are businesses, and investing is most intelligent when it is most businesslike (know your business).

Margin of safety is a concept that not only applies to bonds and other fixed-value investments, but also to common stocks.

Price and value are not always the same.

“Mr. Market” tells investors every day what he thinks their stocks are worth. His appraisals are occasionally influenced by fear or greed, and investors are free to heed or ignore Mr. Market when it suits them.

Both defensive (passive) and enterprising (active) investment strategies have their place, depending on the needs and desires and abilities of investors.

Inflation does not generally add to investment value because inflation does not increase the rate of return on capital enjoyed by public corporations.

    • Is it possible to use AND and OR for optimization in Amibroker? Lets look at this line of code: U = Optimize(1, 0, 1, 1);  Buy = (C > MA(C,20) ) == U;  //condition is True if U = 1 and False if U = 0 In effect I can flip ">" operator to "<=" by using numerical values of 0 for False and 1 for True in optimization. Is there a way to do the same with AND and OR? Lets look at this line of code: Buy = ROC(C,5) > 1 OR ROC(C,1) < -2;  and this one: Buy = ROC(C,5) > 1 AND ROC(C,1) < -2;  Is there a way to run an optimization on the following so it is an equivalent to switching between AND and OR: OPERATOR = Optimize(AND, AND, OR, ?);  Buy = ROC(C,5) > 1 OPERATOR ROC(C,1) < -2;  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    • Sure just to name a few - Plus500, XM.com, Forex.com
    • Being regulated by the CySEC! Are you serious? 🤣 Ok. Let's get serious. Only the FCA is what we can call a real regulator, so could you please name just ONE crypto broker regulated by the FCA? And I said REGULATED and not REGISTERED. You know what I mean. 😜
    • ) I want to share my trading experience with Fiatotrade . Two years ago I started a small amount, received a little profit and withdrew the entire amount without any problems. Then after some time he threw quite a large amount and began to trade in large volumes. Problems began in the form of slippages and requotes, as it turned out later - this is due to the fact that the type of account was Standard . In general, I decided to withdraw the entire amount again, they asked me to confirm the passport data (probably because the amount was large). Confirmed - withdrawn in 5 minutes. Then I took a break again and a year ago I decided again to trade with this broker. Again I started a large amount, but already on the ECN account. There was no requote, and with slippings almost without problems. In general, trade is on its own, and profit is also available and derived. Therefore, I remain with this broker for now, because I checked it on my own skin.
    • Does anyone have ValueChart indicator for NT8?
