Back in early 2019 I decided to try a new writing style, resulting in my book about investing. The main innovation is the use of real data to make conclusions about the best way to invest money in the fixed income market in Brazil.
I was a lot of fun to learn more and write about money management and investing, a subject so different from the usual programming topics dealt in this blog. The audience is also much larger, making it a more challenging and rewarding effort.
I’m happy to report that the feedback has been great.
I often get asked about how to invest in the stock market. Not surprisingly, this has been a common topic in my classes. Brazil is experiencing a big change in its financial scenario. Historically, fixed income instruments paid a large premium over the stock market and that is no longer the case. Interest rates are low, without the pressure from inflation. This means a more sustainable scenario for low-interest rates in the future. Without the premium in the fixed income market, people turn to the stock market.
We can separate investors according to their horizon.
