Our Portfolio Performance speaks for itself
With over 45 years of combined experience, we have developed a system that combines time and price in a way that minimizes risk, while getting us in at the very early stages of significant price moves. With our tried-and-true formula of carefully measuring risk against potential reward, we avoid major portfolio drawdowns. This system protects us from substantial losses, while at the same time keeps us in our winning trades long enough to maximize our profits. In other words, we cut our losses quickly, and let our winners run. Best of all, none of this requires us to be sitting in front of our computer screens all day.
While the camaraderie, mutual interests we all share, and the sense of community we get by being a part of the Wanderer Group has been rewarding for all involved, the bottom line is that we are all here to grow our portfolios through trading. Here’s how the Official Wanderer Subscriber Portfolio performed during its first official year from May 2017 through April 2018.
Our trading philosophy
Our trading philosophy is to keep it simple and safe, and you'll find those tenets on display throughout our website and newsletter. Over the years of funding our wandering lifestyle through trading, we have built trading techniques that are easy to understand and implement. Those techniques consist of carefully managing risk, precisely calculating the reward-to-risk ratio, exercising patience, and remembering that there’s more to life than computer screens and spreadsheets.

This comes from experience. New traders learn the hard way—or never learn—inevitably allowing trades to go painfully against them with the “hope” that it will turn around. Experience is what allows us to not let that happen.
We aren’t interested in betting on a coin toss. Using our trading indicators, we enter trades when we believe they have at least an 80% probability. A weighted coin, if you will. We never feel compelled to rush into a trade just to make something happen.
Reward to Risk
While we already wait for a high probability of success in a trade, we also don’t want to enter a trade that can’t earn us a high reward relative to the risk. At a minimum, a trade needs a reward:risk ratio of 2:1 to earn our consideration.
Our trading style allows us, and our subscribers, the freedom to wander. We discuss trades as they are setting up, determine appropriate entries and exits, place our orders, and let the trade do its work. No need to spend all your waking hours hovering over your trades.
With over 40 years of combined experience, Pat and Lorin are a formidable team, each with their unique area of focus. Together, their knowledge and expertise combine to deliver a safe and viable stock trading strategy.
We can tell you how great we are, but there's no need to when our customers can do it for us. You can read more of what our customers have to say about us on our Customer Reviews Page.
Forty-five years ago, a laid-back meteorology professor at MIT, Edward Lorenz, posed a question that would spark debate for decades. His simple question, “Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?” has been applied to every modern debate from climate change to politics. While those are lively topics[…]To[…]

We are finally seeing the extreme capitulation that often accompanies ICL’s. GDX and GDXJ both broke through major support on high volume before reversing today. The RSI is at levels rarely seen, if ever. There is a chance that the ICL is finally in for the miners, though conditions remain fragile. Gold is not yet[…]
You have to love social media. Those nine words tweeted by Elon Musk may go down as the shortest offer in history. For comparison, consider GM’s 2010 prospectus was over 230 pages. Typically, an announcement to take a company private would come through a news release, or a regulatory filing from the company, but Elon[…]
One of the most overlooked subjects in public education is the history of money. How it’s made, what it is, who is in charge of it, and where it comes from. Most of us hardly give it a second thought, except to check whether we have enough, and to scheme on ways to get more.[…]
On Tuesday, the Fed released a statement that left rates unchanged, while maintaining forward guidance which has investors anticipating two more rate hikes this year. Officially, the Fed is supposed to be independent of outside influence as it focuses on its dual mandate of maximum employment and low inflation. Unofficially, the Fed is subject to[…]
