This past week I read another excellent article by Jeremy Grantham which included several “tips” for retail investors…the tip that really got my attention was, “Stock market opinions must be read with a careful understanding of the time period being used.” His article reminded me how important it is for me to trade the same time horizon as my analysis….because if I’m not properly connecting the time frame of my analysis to the time frame of my trading….and vice versa….I’m going to be losing money. In fact, I think any time I’ve “struggled” with trading it’s because my short term trading strategies have been based upon longer term analysis.
