Risk and Reward - Can Be Determined Accurately - Before Taking ANY Positions!
Risk is often hidden from the Investor and is seldom even discussed other than in one of those obnoxious Disclaimers you are so often given.
Reward is always a "Pie in the Sky" thing and is part of the sales pitch or hype given so freely now-a-days.
Forecasting is based on "Probabilities." There is a clear "probability" for any security on any given day. That can become converted to a Risk (meaning the probability of Losing money) - and - to a Reward (meaning the probability of Making money).
It is also possible, each and every day, to determine as measured by "Percent" how much current Risk there is -- and - how much current Reward there is.
Why on God's Green Earth Investors and Financial Advisors / Asset Managers make new commitments or take new positions every day of the week is far beyond my understanding. I do, however, believe it is a matter of Ethics and the Greed to earn a buck that this very unfortunate situation exists on Wall Street and around the World.
