George's Corner: Efficient Frontier
The Markowitz mean-variance theory is considered classical asset allocation. The overall objective, of this theory, is to derive an optimal portfolio where risk and return are analyzed simultaneously. Harry Markowitz introduced the concepts in 1952 and was later awarded the Nobel Prize for his research. In his installment George discusses the Modern Portfolio Theory and how it was designed to work.
False Profits: Exposing Bias with Independent Performance Audits (Part V-Plans & Follow-Through)
In the fifth installment of Andrew Danik’s “False Profits”, the author discusses how vital it is for traders to constantly monitor their trading plan and stick with their goal, always accounting for any potential red flags, unintended bias and ultimately knowing when to stick with a plan or cut your losses. He intersperses his discussion with a very tragic and powerful story of a Canadian couple, who veer off course on their way to a trade show in Las Vegas, and ultimately end up losing their way in the mountains of Nevada – with devastating consequences. It is interesting to see how Andrew analogously used this unfortunate incident to illustrate the challenges of trading.
