Why investing is not easy:
- Historical or backward view of statistics makes an over simplistic impression about returns that accrue to equities. But it is important to understand the genesis of those numbers.
- Spread sheet modelling in the new era gives a false confidence as well as a wrong impression of precise returns. But the users of these models retain the same primal behavioural patterns.
- The long term focus and discipline easily gets lost in the market chaos of investing with too much attention to short term volatility.
