The Impact of Black Swans at Advanced Market Timing Experts Workshop 2011

 It is highly possible that market timing will generate great profits for investors if the strategy is applied properly. How to successfully apply technical analysis tools and capture those gains will be presented at Golden Networking’s Advanced Market Timing Experts Workshop 2011, "Master Market Timing with the Leading Technical Analyst", March 21 & 22, Singapore, and March 24 & 25, in Hong Kong, with leading expert Trevor Neil. Javier Estrada, in his paper, “Black Swans and Market Timing: How Not to Generate Alpha”, asks: do investors obtain their long term returns smoothly and steadily over time, or is their long term performance largely determined by the return of just a few outliers? How likely are investors to successfully predict the best days to be in and out of the market? The evidence from 15 international equity markets and over 160,000 daily returns indicates that a few outliers have a massive impact on long term performance. On average across all 15 markets, missing the best 10 days resulted in portfolios 50.8% less valuable than a passive investment; and avoiding the worst 10 days resulted in portfolios 150.4% more valuable than a passive investment. Given that 10 days represent less than 0.1% of the days considered in the average market, the odds against successful market timing are would seem staggering. Advanced Market Timing Experts Workshop 2011 is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs, investors and diplomats, founded by former McKinsey consultant and Columbia Business School MBA Edgar Perez.
