Well, there’s no question about it, this year has been a bumpy start for many stock market investors and Super Funds, alike.
Markets have been hit with rising inflation, higher interest rates and rapidly slowing consumer confidence, all of which have combined to shave a decent percentage of many portfolios.
But does it have to be that way – and the answer is simply no.
Take this month’s Trader Of The Month. He’s been trading with us for 7 months, and starting from the ground up has built up his knowledge and confidence, as well as his bank balance.
Looking at his performance in April – At a time that many were reaching for the hard hat and getting worked over, 90% of his trades were winners, he took 41 trades and his return vs Risk for the month was a healthy 7.5%.
This is not a one-month phenomenon, because since he started trading live at the end of October, his account is up a very impressive 19.2% NET. Over the same time, the Nasdaq fell by 20%, S&P500 by 9%, and the ASX200 by around 5%. You can expect similar declines in your managed funds and super.

This is yet another example of what can happen when you make the decision to change the game up, get control of your money, and most importantly learn how to manage it properly.
Please join me in congratulating Nev Watts on his well-deserved award as Australian Investment Education Trader of The Month April 2021. Great job buddy, I look forward to seeing where you take this journey next.
Not convinced that learning how to do this for yourself is for you. That’s ok, it’s not for everyone, so if you are thinking that way, one question to perhaps ask yourself is, can you afford to trust someone else to look after your money properly?
