Investor Workshop: The Seven Keys to Behavioural Investing with Julian Robertson, Roy Niederhoffer, Robert Zuccaro, CFA and Julien Messias

Opalesque SKILLSLAB webinar on Tuesday, Jan. 26th 10 am EST:

While 'Behavioural Investing' is the broad catch-all term to describe the psychological forces that influence investors' decisions, research (and true introspection) reveal each time where and how we fail as a result of our own blind spots.

But, being aware of blind spots does not mean we're able to avoid the pitfall next time.

As James Montier writes, the solution lies is designing and adopting an investment process that is at least partially robust to behavioural decision-making errors:

  • How to identify & neutralize pitfalls & investment blind spots
  • Can we design investment strategies that exploit behavioral biases?
  • How do you know if you have hired a good manager? - Julian Robertson (via Video)

Technical Research Briefing

S&P FUTURES (@ES) – Daily

Currently: Long Looking to: Sell @ 3,951; short @ 4,075

As of 1/15/21 close: 3,762.25

LAST WEEK: We suggested buying dips in ES futures to 3,748 with stops honored on a close below 3,652 and with an upside target of 4,078.

UPDATE: S&P futures pulled back from the highs near 3,820 last week and tested initial support at 3,747.25. Right now, we are of the opinion that support holds and that we see another upside run commencing soon. The anticipated rally should, in theory, take prices up to 3,951.50 at the very least.

We would cover shorts and get long immediately with stops honored on a daily close below 3,747 and with an upside target for selling longs at 3,951.

We would only look to get short on an extended move up to 4,075 with stops honored on a close above 4,118 and with a downside target for covering / getting long at 3,672.
