i am a big note-taker, and i plan out my strategies by debating myself within my notes. recently i've been reviewing notes from like three years ago (when i wondered if i should buy aapl at 14). i can tell how ignorant i was, thinking i just needed a system, a simple system... and that's true... but only one that demonstrates above-average return on identifiable patterns back-tested across time and confirmed legitimate. which is basically impractical for me so i hone it down to time-tested principles like asset allocation and position size, respecting the recommendations of organizations that have a solid track record of recommendations for the kind of investing i do, and the rest is position management, and learning to take a profit and cut a loss and don't look back.
