Jim Rogers Investment Strategy And Big Wins



Jim Rogers uses a top-down economic model. This big-picture worldview guides his investment style: He says he can't time the markets, so he takes a long-term approach.

Rogers is known as a contrarian investor. His willingness to go against the grain and buck popular opinion has produced some of his best ideas.

Rogers has a knack for spotting a long-term trend long before the masses. He was a pioneer in international investing with his Quantum Fund in the 1970s and early '80s. He called the commodities boom in the late '90s, launching his Rogers International Commodity Index in 1998 -- well before the commodities boom of the 2000s ripped across the Street. He also cashed in on the financial crisis of 2008, shorting Fannie Mae before shares crashed from above $60 to just pennies

The hallmark of all Rogers' trades and investments is patience. Whether he was waiting for the commodities boom in the early 2000s or betting against financial stocks in 2008, Rogers emphasized the important of patience to execute a great trade or investment: "I just wait until there is money lying in the corner, and all I have to do is go over there and pick it up. I do nothing in the meantime." - in nasdaq.com
