I currently work as a money manager, I have been in finance for the last 10 years and work on a team with over 55 cumulative years of experience. We manage with a bent toward cash and value but pay attention to short term movements with more frequency than most true value managers. We have no rules in place of where we can go. We go where we find value. We also use options, buying into the fact that the derivative of an asset can offer faster gains.
