It looks like value investing is back for 2017

Macquarie goes on to say value investing is still performing well in 2017, despite fading slightly from last year’s outperformance. The value trade involves selecting stocks that are trading for less than their intrinsic values.

Lessons learned for human active trading

Lessons learned for human active trading

In my recent switch to RBC direct investments has been somewhat successful, I start to realize that human traders are at a huge disadvantage compared to automated traders. For instance to do quick P&L reports on an active trading account, you have to manually total everything since your starting date. I mean seriously wtf? Who knew your software is really important to get a better handle on how your trading account is doing? I really don’t think Interactive Brokers is much better. Other lessons to learn for newbies are settlement dates. It gets very confusing on your balance when you have to wait 2 to 3 business days for the trade to settle. It gets kind of confusing if you know what I mean.

So this posting is not really a marketing fluff piece, it is just so essential to have proper software that you own and control to be a successful human trader.
