True, we have been silent in the public domain for 2 weeks. We did not publish public blog posts. But it was really, really different in our premium services. We were in overdrive in the last 10 weeks, particularly in the last 2 weeks, and this did no go unnoticed by members of our 3 premium services. They received a lot of communication in the form of tips, guidance, strategic and actionable insights. Let’s explain in this short blog post what we did in the last 2 weeks.
At the start of 2020 we launched our Mission 2026, a public challenge to double our portfolio each and every year between 2020 and 2026. By actively managing 2 portfolios, one with a short term focus and one with a medium term focus, we aim to grow our capital from 10k (starting capital) to 1M, in front of the eyes of many members.
It’s the ultimate challenge to show your ability to grow capital when so many investors can ‘look over your shoulder’ what you are doing and how you are doing things. For us, it is a great opportunity to ensure we get everything right, to the state of perfection, so that each and every trade becomes better, even in the most extreme conditions.
And we had lots of unusual conditions in 2020.
Think of the sudden decline in March, negative crude oil prices, crashing and exploding precious metals prices, and so on and so forth. So many things could have gone wrong this year, especially for greedy investors that lack discipline.
Navigating through all these unusual conditions and exceptional chart setups, while growing capital at the same time, is not the type of activity for starters.
Throughout 2020 we have been working day and night to stay on top of these unusual markets conditions, and use each and every day to learn something new. We also were forced by the market to learn from each and every trade we took, the vast majority of them went well but some of them didn’t deliver the desired result. That’s when an analyst-investor needs to show a never-ending desire to continuously learn so to ultimately become a real master. It is one thing to be disappointed by a trade or prediction that did not materialize, it’s another thing to get the full learnings out of it and exactly understand which larger or smaller detail created that unexpected outcome.
InvestingHaven’s research team members share a few values: passion, commitment, dedication, discipline, and above all a continuous learning mindset.
We expected the first few weeks of November to be instrumental, we saw this in the charts already back in August / September. We reported this to our members since then.
The period September till mid-November was rougher than expected, with wild swings. So getting all our trades perfectly right was certainly a challenge. And even though we got many things right, we always strive to perfection.
Good is not good enough, at InvestingHaven. Great is not good enough. Amazing is the level when we get satisfied, and the results that make us smile should be amazing or astonishing (no compromise).
That said, we had to dedicate all of our available time in the last 2 weeks to get us going for what we believe is a new trend. You can get a preview of our viewpoint in these blog posts. Needless to say our premium members receive(d) many more (actionable) details.
We believe markets will calm down now, and we believe our portfolios are set up for success. This came with lots of effort in the form of analysis, research, study.
Stated differently, our first focus is to get to the state of perfection in our 3 premium services. We have this target to double our capital every year, it’s our priority number 1. Our premium members can testify this.
Assuming markets will calm down, we can focus again on public blog posts, the ones that are more generic in nature. The actionable articles, insights and tips (including stock tips and buy/sell alerts) are reserved for members in our 3 premium services.
So those thinking we took a few weeks off … no, that’s not what we did. But if we achieve our 100% profit target by year end, you can be sure we will take off one full week between X-mas and New Year, and we’ll be drinking lots of champagne. Doubling a portfolio in one of the most challenging years in history of markets is not an ordinary achievement. Between now and then, our portfolios need to grow just a little more to achieve our 100% profit target, we are very close to that point though. You can be sure that we will publicly announce if and when we hit that milestone.
Enjoying our work? We invest in market segments in which momentum is brewing, and we so with carefully chosen positions which we hold from a few weeks to a few months. Our Momentum Investing portfolio is up +60% year to date. Also, our Trade Alerts premium service tracks general stock market trends, up and down. So far, this year, our combined portfolio is delivering approx. +80% year to date. We are on track to double our capital in 2020, as per our Mission 2026.
