Ha-ha. Yep, you’re learning.
Yes, we just work the system, knowing that over time, most positions will work out and knowing that a small percentage certainly will not (because that’s real-world investing). And we’ll never know ahead of time which ones won’t make it and which ones will flourish. And news won’t tell us which ones will or won’t either. Nothing will. Only in hindsight will we see all of that.
But through our system and proper diversification and money allocation, we do well over time. That’s what we do know.
