Strengths and Trading Philosophy
Trading and investing consists of basing a decision off of the future, which is something none of us know or can control with any certainty. Thus, dealing with risk is inescapable and essential as it relates to trading. Kevin's approach is to help clients understand risks and develop trading strategies that revolve around those risks. The first step in trading are to understand the risks involved with any strategy. The second step is recognizing what the risk-reward potential is and whether the potential risks are justifiable for the potential reward. The third and the most critical part is executing the strategy and managing the risk.
