An effective investment strategy is not just something that some individuals have a knack for developing. The process is based on solid and accurate information that comes from a variety of sources. For many people those sources are publications and advice from their personal brokers. But for certain groups of major investors, the actual information comes from other mega-investors who are willing to share information with with other wealthy market hawks, often a select group of individuals with the same mission. That is what happens at the Oxford Club on a regular basis, and the current mission for all speculators is how to protect their wealth when the next market downfall occurs. Not if, but when.
October 2017 is the 30th anniversary of what has been termed as “Black Monday” in investment circles. On October 19, 1987 the New York Stock Exchange fell a dramatic 22.7% in one day of trading, a downward slope that has not been equaled since that day. Many investors think the market is actually poised to deliver the same type of blow to investors in the near future, even thought the current trend is that there is no direction to go but up because all of the alternative investments such as bonds are not yielding anything of value. Outside of the stock market, wealth holders are just parking their assets if they are not in the market. This position is what many of the members of the Oxford Club are avoiding.
Founded in 1999, the Oxford Club is a exclusive organization of some 80,000 uber-wealthy individuals and organizations who do not leave protecting their wealth to a team of brokers, instead handling their own investments based on the strategy of other investment colleagues. Those colleagues often have accurate inside information and ability to analyze investment factors that will assuredly impact the market in any given direction. The contemporary position held by many of those at the Oxford Club is that the market is long overdue for a correction and being positioned properly when the correction happens is vital to financial survival for all of these mega investors. Members of the Oxford Club do not necessarily follow market trends. They usually set them.
