Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk
« on: August 17, 2020, 01:51:59 PM »
The inalienable law of investment is that the greater your possible rewards, the greater the risk. At the moment there is not a single investment category which is not filled with risk. You don’t really understand risk until you see your money evaporate. The commission hungry broker or website will never ever tell you this.

Currently we find that there are very few go areas for investment, i.e. where reward exceeds risk with the possible exception of long Treasury bonds but if you still want to metaphorically play in casino two that’s up to you.
