Trading stocks has been a popular topic lately with stories like Gamestop $GME dominating the headlines. Take a look at this chart by Google Trends showing the number of searches for "cheap stocks" since 2004: Cheap Stock Google Searches When Hurricane Corona hit the market last March, searches for "cheap stocks" spiked before subsiding and then exploding again recently. So what is a "cheap stock"? Is a penny stock cheaper than a stock that trades for more than $1,000 per share? Which is cheaper: a stock you can buy for $0.05 or a stock that costs $567? The answer is slightly complicated and it is probably best explained by an old saying in capitalism which is "the price for anything is what someone is willing to pay for it." So was Gamestop $GME worth $300 per share? It was for whoever paid $300 per share at the time to buy it but it isn't worth $300 at this moment! Invest in companies and not symbols. Generally speaking, instead of looking

Trading The Tides Or Let It Ride?

Does trading  the Tides  really make a difference? The answer depends on the  volatility. Say the market steadily rises 20% over a period of time. If, during that period of time there was only  low volatility  ( VIX  less than 20), then if you traded/timed  the Tides  perfectly, you may earn only a few percentage points greater than the 20% you would have earned if you had just let it ride. So during periods of  low volatility , we are better off buying and holding (sailing), never returning to port. However, in periods of  high volatility  ( VIX  greater than 20), trading  the Tides  can produce significantly greater returns. Looking back over the period between June 15, 2020, and February 16, 2021 the  S&P  rose 33%. Because of the  high volatility  during that period, if you timed  the Tides  perfectly, you would have earned 76%. Volatility  is the key to trading  the Tides . And if you don't want to put in the work or we are in a period of  low volatility  then it is best t
