Hedge Fund/Family Office Consulting Job

An example of my short corporate career

UIZ: You are called in to interview for a six-figure consulting job for a family office.   The family wants to establish an investment policy and procedure for investing.   You are asked whether you would recommend investing in IPOs or other hedge funds.   You reply that before recommending any asset class you would first determine:__________________________?   Also, as a “value” (redundant) investor you would seek to buy from _______________ sellers. In case you need a hint, Ben Graham would have given you the answer in The Intelligent Investor.

One of the family members plops two annotated charts: 1 shows a reverse head and shoulders pattern on pork bellies and chart 2 shows blood spatter on the right of the chart.   Which one has more predictive value as to where the market is headed?

Please answer in a few words–two or three–but no more than a sentence. GOOD LUCK!
