Patterns and Anomalies
In this excerpt from his acclaimed book Taming The Lion, highly successful trader, investor and former hedge fund manager, Richard Farleigh, reveals some of the secret investment strategies that he developed to succeed in the markets: "I have spent my professional life looking for patterns and anomalies. There are many in the markets which are useful to understand. Shares, bonds, currencies and property all offer unique challenges and opportunities. A good idea can often point to more than one type of investment. One example is that a strong economy is bullish for both stocks and property, but property may be the easier play because it has smoother cycles. Another type of pattern in the markets is that crisis situations almost always provide opportunities to those investors who can remain calm and who have kept some powder dry." Praise for Farleigh's acclaimed book, Taming the Lion: "Anyone who was able to retire at the age of 34, move to Monte Carlo and become a private investor must have made some smart investment decisions. Richard Farleigh did just that and he's sharing his secrets in this book." Money Magazine "Taming the Lion is a book about profiting from big themes. From humble beginnings in Australia, Farleigh made a fortune following powerful trends, the most effective and least stressful route to investment success. He knows how to write too." Telegraph "Overall I feel there is so much information in this book, it is probably one I will keep re-reading as I make investment decisions. I especially like the way it has reminded me that there are other asset classes to invest in other than shares and property and yet the same strategies are applicable." Investors Voice
