The average person’s entry into the world of investing is usually that of a passively managed index fund along with a buy and hold strategy. This is the foundation that underwrites the beginning for most investors. In order for an investor to walk away convinced that actively trading his portfolio is a superior way to invest, he must clearly see the benefits of doing so. In other words, all of the aspects of an active approach to portfolio management that we highlight every single day must finally become so powerful that the traditional, passive foundation shakes, trembles, and eventually splits. What this investor needs…is a tradequake.
