George Soros Versus "The World's Best Kept Investment Secret"


George Soros Versus "The World's Best Kept Investment Secret":

Financial Safety Services disclaimer

Onebornfree's Financial Safety Services commentary: 

Now you might think that a person as rich as Mr Soros would have access to the best financial/investment advice in the world, but apparently not. He's reported to have lost around $1 billion in the Brexit outcome, and another $1 billion betting against the "Trump bump" [ the temporary increase in US stock indices after Trumps win]. He obviously has no idea of what amounts to "the world's best kept investment secret". Any reader out there who personally knows Mr Soros :-) ; please ask him to contact me so I can enlighten/elucidate him on that secret, so that he would never again suffer these types of losses. :

George Soros lost nearly $1 billion when Donald Trump won:

"Billionaire hedge-fund manager and Hillary Clinton supporter George Soros bet against the stock market’s reaction to the election of President-elect Donald Trump and lost almost $1 billion in the process, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday"............:

"How George Soros Lost Money In a Bad Brexit Bet":

"Perhaps George Soros should go back into retirement.

It appears the 85-year-old lost money betting that the British pound would rise in the wake of the Brexit vote. A Soros spokesperson confirm to Bloomberg that the octogenarian's fund was "long" the pound even after the vote. The fact that Soros lost money betting on the pound is surprising not only because he famously made a billion dollars "breaking the pound" back in 1992, but also because he predicting a drop in the sterling would happen...":

Speculations- Got Money You Can Afford To Lose?

 Financial Safety Services Disclaimer

Financial Safety Services Free All-Weather Speculation Suggestions:


Got Money You Could Afford to Lose?

 If possible, divide your savings to date into 2 "piles" :

[1] money you cannot afford to lose,

and...

[2] money you can afford to lose.

Got No Money You Could Afford To Lose?

If you have no money you could afford to lose, don't worry, just ignore all of the speculative suggestions given below.

Much more importantly, the money you cannot afford to lose needs to be safe, in a neutrally balanced,  long term, non-predictive savings plan similar to this one.

 Got Money You Could Afford To Lose?

Use only money you can realistically afford to lose for any of the following speculative ideas. These suggestions are for pure speculations [i.e. bets] -don't risk money you cannot afford to lose, _EVER_.

Got it?

Do you believe that a banking crisis is coming?
Suggestion: buy put options* on bank stocks [ using only money you can afford to lose].

Do you believe that inflation is coming?
Suggestion: buy gold or call options* on gold, [ using only money you can afford to lose].

Do you believe that a recession coming?
Suggestion: buy put options* on stocks or stock indices [ using only money you can afford to lose].

Do you believe that the debt crisis is going out of control?
Suggestion: buy put options* on government bonds [ using only money you can afford to lose].

Do you believe that a false alarm "crisis" is coming?
Suggestion: buy junk bonds - which should profit considerably when interest rates fall sharply [ using only money you can afford to lose].

Do you believe that the economy will "muddle through" somehow?
Suggestion: buy stocks of companies you believe would most profit [ using only money you can afford to lose].

Do you believe that a deflation is coming?
Suggestion: Buy 30 year US treasury bonds [ using only money you can afford to lose].

*An option is a security that profits if a stock, stock index, or whatever, goes up [ call option] or down [put option]. As options have very short lives, typically no more than 9 months, they usually expire worthless. Therefor any speculation made with "play money" via options should only utilize a small part of the "play money" total, otherwise you could lose all of that "play money" within a few months.
