the Zurich (investment) Axioms

Risk - Worry is not a sickness but a sign of health -- if you are not worried, you are not risking enough.
Greed - Always take your profit too soon. Decide in advance what gain you want and, when you get it, get out.
Hope - When the ship starts sinking, jump. Accept small losses as a fact of life.
Forecasts - Human behaviour cannot be predicted. Distrust anyone who claims to know the future.
Patterns - Chaos is not dangerous until it starts to look orderly.
Mobility - Avoid putting down roots. They impede motion. Do not become trapped in a souring venture because of sentiments like loyalty and nostalgia.
Intuition - A hunch can be trusted if it can be explained. Never confuse a hunch with a hope.
the Occult - If astrology worked, all astrologers would be rich.
Optimism and Pessimism - Optimism means expecting the best, but confidence means knowing how you will handle the worst. Never make a move if you are merely optimistic.
Consensus - Disregard the majority opinion. It is probably wrong. Never follow speculative fads. Often the best time to buy something is when nobody else wants it.
Stubbornness - If it doesn't pay off the first time, forget it. Never try to save a bad investment by "averaging down."
Planning - Long-range plans engender the dangerous belief that the future is under control. It is important never to take your own long-range plans or other people's seriously.
