As investors, we all want to "buy low and sell high." That's easy to understand in principle but very difficult in practice. Why is this so difficult? The answer is simple. For the average investor, 80% of investment decisions are based on emotion. As human beings, we are wired to be bad investors. Investors often follow the herd mentality of buying and selling. We buy when we are euphoric and markets have experienced recent success (the point of Maximum Financial Risk), and sell when financial markets are experiencing stress and volatility (the Point of Maximum Financial Opportunity).

Talking heads and financial people love to espouse their knowledge of when to buy and sell in the stock and bond markets. Unless their crystal ball is working better than ours, we remain skeptical of their consistent success. Investing in stocks and bonds does not need to be a "long only" gamble on the linear price moves of the markets; it can be more calculated and consistent. This article will outline specific ways for retirees and income oriented investors to generate a more consistent income from their portfolios and mitigate downside risk.
