While the last several years have seen huge losses for most investors in stocks, it has provided some valuable insights and allowed development of new concepts for stock investing. Jason Hartman talks with Dr. Chris Kacher and Gil Morales, principles and managing directors of Virtue of Selfish Investing, LLC and MoKa Investors, LLC, regarding their take on the markets, particularly commodities.
Chris and Gil explain their investment philosophy and concepts born out of frustration with other market strategies failing, relating how they were able to get through the market crash and the continued instability. One of the concepts is the Pocket Pivot, a favorable entry point in a stock before it breaks out of the stock base. Gil and Chris also share their outlook on stocks, commodities, currencies and inflation.
