Learning from the shoeshine boy, the world of investing
First of all,
[Investing with parents and children! ] 4 investment methods that reduce risks that even children can understand As I wrote, investing is a zero-sum game. If you can invest in a financial product with the expectation that it will grow over the long term, you will be as close as possible to a plus-sum game. But what if there is a financial product that has gossip and sudden price movements? Even if the financial product is something that they are not familiar with, many people invest it as a profit story. In that case, the investment becomes speculative and becomes a zero-sum game (the sum of the players’ total points equals plus or minus zero). If someone makes money, who is stepping into a losing market. The market moves in price depending on the speculation of various people. If you don’t have your own ideas and market views, you will be swayed by speculators such as hedge funds, institutional investors, and wealthy people. It is very difficult to cultivate a sense of the market, and it is nice if you can feel even “I have a bad feeling“! Genius! In recent years (as of 2022), the FX dollar-yen market and the Bitcoin market have become easy-to-understand speculative markets. If you have a bad feeling, you will realize that it is a world where people who can cut losses and repartition before the loss becomes large can survive. You can make a profit in the speculative market, but you need to make quick and appropriate decisions, and it is better not to touch as much as possible. Unless you can see a long-term outlook in the dollar or Bitcoin. Personally, I don’t buy the latest dollar because of the impact of the interest rate hike, the negative impact on the US economy, and Bitcoin because of the smell (prejudice). It’s troublesome, and I think that it doesn’t have to be a virtual currency. (*This is my personal opinion, so I have no other intentions)
What is a plus-sum game
The total points of the players participating in the game are the ones that will be positive. However, not all players will get the same score.
What is a shoeshine boy
In 1929, the United States was in the midst of a bubble. One day, when Mr. Kennedy was asking a shoeshine boy to polish his shoes, the boy said, “I have a good profit story. This stock is profitable! Uncle should buy it too!” That was the story. When Mr. Kennedy heard this, he felt uncomfortable that even children who were not interested in investing were talking about investing as a profit story. Then, deciding that the trend of investing in stocks would end in the near future, he sold all the stocks he owned. A few days later, Black Thursday, which is said to have triggered the Great Depression, occurred, but Mr. Kennedy is said to have been able to avoid it brilliantly.

What is a trend?
Tides, trends. In statistics, it refers to trend fluctuations. It refers not only to investments, but also to popular and trendy things. In investment, it refers to the flow of price movements in the market, and is expressed as an uptrend and a downtrend. We often hear that investing is without Baba. Is investing without Baba? Investing is essentially about giving money to an object that will bring you profits in the future. I analyze my investment targets and give money because it is worth the investment. However, it seems that many people want immediate profits in recent investments, and many people speculate on investments that are unfamiliar and far from the essence of investing. Speculation becomes a zero-sum game, and winners and losers are born. It is often said that it has become like Trump’s “baba no-go” by predicting mass psychology and imposing devalued financial products on others. Since you are fighting against hedge funds, institutional investors, wealthy people, and other well-funded investment professionals, you will lose if you are forced to buy or sell. Make your own rules and try to trade according to the rules.
【Finally】Don’t be misled by the market price and have your own thoughts
I feel that the shoeshine boy usually appears on the ceiling or bottom. If the general public is heading in the same direction, it is easy to change the trend just by having a well-funded speculator trigger it. People are creatures that want to be comfortable when they are in a state of doubt. If you are mentally weak, your thinking will stop and you will be killed in an instant. The world of investing is a terrifying world full of professionals who are always looking for profits. Can you enter a battlefield full of fully armed people with just a pair of pants? Normally, you can’t. However, I personally don’t hate living like investment YouTuber JIN (that would be entertainment, and if ordinary people did it, they would go bankrupt). Don’t worry, if you don’t make a mistake, your assets are likely to grow! Let’s all think carefully, invest instead of speculating, and build assets with as little risk as possible for the future!
