Apes and Risk Aversion



The GME phenomenon is not over and it made me reflect on the risk aversion concept.

The term risk-averse describes the investor who chooses the preservation of capital over the potential for a higher-than-average return.


When it comes to risk, I always benchmark:

  1. Worst-case / best-case scenario: by worst, I mean worst. If things get f****** how will I react?
  2. Horizon: is there – even a small probability – that I will need the money I am investing (or betting lol) in the next 6/12/18 months?

In my opinion, common sense always wins:

  • Plan: you can look at the dollar cost averaging concept for example
  • Stick to the plan: buy high sell low is not a smart strategy 😉
  • Park emotions

Would you guys agree?

Happy bettin… I mean…Happy investing folks!!
