Welcome to Smart Money Math! This is my first in hopefully a long line of successful posts. My name is Matt and I am an Engineer, Developer and Finance Enthusiast. I own my own house with my wife and have been investing as an accredited investor for over 10 years.
In my investing experience I have seen lots of highs and a few lows. I have seen friends make millions investing and other lose everything. What has separated the winner from the losers? To be honest, some of it appears to have been pure luck. However, for others a systematic approach seems to be their key to success.
I’ve always wanted to spend time looking into investing success and failures to see if there are common patterns an average investor could benefit in knowing. That is where this blog comes in!
I am starting a portfolio with $1,000 using math, technology and common-sense finance to see if I can replicate the success of systematic investors. Within this portfolio I will follow the rules listed here and do my best to capitalize on market inefficiencies.
I will talk about both my successes and failures and hopefully discover some investing insights along the way.
Let’s start doing some Smart Money Math!
