Ignore the Noise

Published on: April 8th, 2019 • Duration: 10 minutes • Topic: Risk Management, Psychology

The modern media has become a cacophony of overwhelming and useless information. The creation of narratives inspire questions like: “What is actually important?” and ” What is just noise?” This week on “The One Thing,” it’s time to shed our shackles and escape from Plato’s allegorical cave. AK breaks down how investors can lift the proverbial scales from their eyes and pinpoint the information that will make them profits.

    "You don't gotta take my word for it"? I had to listen to that twice just to make sure that's what he really said. Where did you get this guy? I get trying to appeal to prospective new listeners, but don't insult their intelligence in the process. After listening to Grant Williams, this guy is like getting hit over the head.

    Be objective. Understand your starting position and any bias that might be embedded within that view. Try not to only grab at headlines/news/stories that confirm that bias. Read opposing positions and use them to challenge your own narrative. By understanding your own position, you will also understand the drivers that may help or hinder that outcome. You will have the confidence to ignore noise, you will recognise if you are right, and you will cut early if you are wrong.

    The best yet. I appreciate you putting the former interview information on the screen. Critical thinking and assigning probabilities to market narratives is an everyday activity. The better we understand ourselves and market information the better the trade. DLS

    I like the way AK's videos pull together a few threads from RV past content. I missed the Grant/Hunt interview... definitely catching up with that one. Cutting out the BS & developing a systematic process is the only way.

    I'm genuinely interested if any one found any value in this video? It was shockingly bad in my opinion. Step your game up!

      Real Vision has repeatedly explained they are releasing new content aimed at people with no or very little exposure to finance, to help start them on learning. We have been told thats what these videos are; free content to non-subscribers to help get them interested in finance and subscribe so they can begin learning. If someone has no knowledge other than the BS they hear on the news, then yes, this probably was valuable. If it got them to subscribe and begin learning, then it was probably very valuable. Stop watching content aimed at beginners if you don't want to watch content aimed at beginners.
