Informarse

Mensajepor Dalamar » 22 May 2012 14:03

Cuando empecé a aprender sobre finanzas e inversiones, mi primera fuente de información eran las noticias, la prensa salmón ... Algo que ahora considero muy poco útil y que apenas profundizo más allá de los titulares, es material para el pueblo ignorante en su mayoría y aporta muy poco, solo me fijo en datos y no en opiniones a no ser que sea para formar mi propia opinión contrarian, después me pase a libros y blogs, y hay de todo, y resulta muy difícil discernir lo bueno de lo malo, solo el tiempo, los años y la experiencia te llevan a elegir los buenos de verdad! Más tarde he empezado a prestar atención a estudios en su mayoría tesis doctorales y es de ahí de donde saco mas chicha, el tiempo me ha llevado desde la opinión a lo empírico, los cálculos, las estadísticas y las matemáticas y es lo que considero más fiable y objetivo, ¿Cómo te formas tú?

Noticias como esta son las que le hacen a uno pensar:

"El 61% de personas con pensiones de empresa desconoce importe de su jubilación y el 43% de los partícipes no conoce el nombre de la gestora de su plan de pensiones de empleo"


Luego dicen que nos timan, que si los bancos, que si los empresarios, que si los politicos! Algo de interes por que no te timen tambien habra que poner, no?

Entrevista muy interesante sobre como informarse:

How much time do you spend each day searching for and consuming information?

Less and less – I probably spend more time looking at curated material and less outright searching than I used to.

Twitter has become the new tape. I am constantly discovering new voices there. I do find myself looking for new sources, but that is not the focus of my process.

Rather, I seem to be hunting for excuses to eliminate bad, unreliable or biased sources. Investors have this cognitive bias that “more information” helps they make better informed decisions. It turns out not to be true; more information helps them be more emotionally comfortable with their decision making – over confident in fact. Paradoxically, more info leads to overconfidence and WORSE decision making.

How do you choose your information sources? Is this process similar to building a portfolio of investments?


Process is important. I want to know that there is a method to the madness of the person I am reading. Sure, track record matters, but I need to see a justifiable rational process that is not based on luck or randomness.

These days, I seem to be reading people rather than organizations. For example, Dan Gross is at Daily Beast – I will read him anywhere, even at a site (like the Daily Beast) filled with biased and corrupt writers I detest. I’ve read Jesse Eisinger at TSCM, WSJ, Portfolio and now Pro Publica – where ever he goes, I am a reader. And James Montier used to be at Dresdner Kleinwort, now he’s at GMO. So it’s the person, not the organization that matters most to me.

I try to eliminate people with bias or a terrible track record or who have to crank out content – give me any excuse to remove one more source of bad or mis-information and I am happy to do so. The perma-bulls and perma-bears are easy targets; the harder ones are the bad judgment or poor process.
For example, Kevin Hasset is one of the authors of Dow 36,000. That’s a fatal money losing horror show of awful judgment AND terrible timing. He is henceforth quarantined as a source for anything ever again. I cannot afford to let anything he writes influence. Ben Stein is another guy who simply murdered his readers financially. There are tons of other examples – people who denied the 2007-09 recession as late as October 2008, rewriters of history. They are too expensive, too costly, to allow them to influence my thoughts.

Have you noticed a proliferation of amateurism and incompetence in financial media in recent years? If so, which media type (i.e. web, print, cable, etc) has deteriorated the most?

Television News is just awful, cable especially. We switched off the TVs in the office about 5 years ago and never looked back. CNN is mostly idiotic, Fox News actually makes you uninformed + filled with wrong info, and CNBC has turned into this money-losing shout fest.

“Lose the News” was a column I wrote in 2005

If a picture if worth a 1000 words, a well-crafted chart is worth 10 times that.

What cautions and advice can you offer traders with regard to their information consumption? Is there a diminishing return of information (i.e. more is less)?

Why are you consuming content? Are you looking to confirm a previously held belief? (Confirmation bias). Are you looking for additional information to make you feel good about your decisions? (Overconfidence bias)
Have a methodology that is not dependent upon finding some tiny piece of hidden info. That is not a repeatable process.

Daniel Boorstin, the former librarian of Congress, once said “I write to discover what I think.” There is a lot of wisdom in that.

Here is a little secret: I write for me, not the reader. If that sounds odd, or anti-social, or even selfish, well, its all 3 of those things. But that’s why its very honest and perhaps why some people find it helpful. I am always seeking the Truth, trying to discern what is reality. There is enough bullshit in the world, who needs another SEO driven, hyped up headline content farm?

How important is intuition for the trader and how might information consumption affect it?

I don’t know, but I suspect intuition is wildly over-rated. Is it consistent reliable repeatable? If intuition was all that important than newbie traders with good intuition would be able to sit down at a desk and making a killing.

That does not seem to ever happen.

I suspect the best traders learn to internalize lots of what they have learned over time, and what appears to be intuition is really the result of 1000s of hours of hard work, research, practice, experience.

SEGÚN UNA ENCUESTA DE ING

El 80% de los españoles que invierten en pensiones ignora si paga o no comisiones


Y luego se quejan de los malvados bancos timadores? Es que hay presas faciles y presas faciles.. A la mayoria no hace falta engañarlos, simplemente no se preocupan.
