A Word on Smart vs Dumb Money

  • Smart money: early-movers, rational investors, well-informed speculators, and financial professionals including VCs and funds that typically enter and exit markets based on facts, trends, data analysis, fundamentals, and forward-thinking projections.
  • Dumb money: newbies, irrational, and non-professional investors who tend to trade markets without a structured plan or strategy based on hype, baseless speculation, and incomplete or inaccurate data/preconceptions.
