"You cannot control the wind, but you can adjust the sails..."

While you cannot control the markets, you can have a plan.
As we all know, financial markets are inherently unpredictable and virtually impossible to forecast with any meaningful regularity. This notion presents investors a series of peculiar dilemmas. Namely:
"How do I go about making investment decisions?"
"Does 'Buy & Hold' make sense for me?"
"Am I diversified enough?"
To complicate the matter, experts in the field of Behavioral Finance often observe that investors routinely make decisions based on emotions that can be in conflict with people's rational self interest.
At Peristyle, we believe in a disciplined approach.
Specifically, we believe that a combination of studying market fundamentals while observing prevailing price trends and momentum can be the basis for a responsible strategy to navigate financial markets in concert with your financial plan.
