The secret of getting ahead is getting started, said American writer Mark Twain.
But, he left something unsaid that is far more important from an investing perspective; once "started", the key is "staying put".
Like the proverbial Zen paradox, the best way to move ahead is to stand still.
Switching strategies (from value to momentum or vice-versa or from small to large-cap etc.) to suit the flavour of the season is a recipe for disaster, especially in the investing world. Rolling stones hardly gather moss. In stillness, there is greater dynamism.
