“Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1." – Warren Buffett
Most platforms glorify the ease of self-directed trading but downplay the most crucial part: frequent trading not only costs you more fees, it often leads to losses.
Over 95% of stock professionals fail to beat the market1, so what makes you think you can?
It's not for everyone.
The truth is, many people could have achieved better long-term returns by investing passively through a low-cost S&P index fund, thereby placing them among the top 5% of pro investors based on historical returns. $10,000 invested in the S&P 500 in 1965 would be worth around $2.5 million today2.
There are a few who delve deep, studying companies and manage to outpace the market over a long period of time. Had you invested $10,000 in Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway in 1965, it would now be worth over $378 million3.
Outperformance demands not only patience, discipline, and hard work, but also a real edge—as emphasized by Seth Klarman, one of Warren Buffett’s favourite market-beating investors.
If you’re a non-conformer, an outperformer, MogoTrade is designed to give you the edge you need to help you be a successful investor.
“The single greatest edge an investor can have is a long-term orientation.” – Seth Klarman
