All of traders and investors have got some lessons but not all could remember them and follow the rules which could be deduced from the experiences. We hate the pains and then we are exclusive from the hard experiences sot that we repeat to do the similar things for different results. We should know it is insane if we are not completely stupid. So we do need to remember only hard experience, proven by fact, should impress you and cause you to follow the rules just if you could sort them out. *** Most of retail traders and investors come to the stock market because the computers and internet. However life is not just about the skills to get the data or information, we need good strategies, which could be very simple. Do you know snowballs? Do you know where there are a lot of snow? Do you know you could not let it melt down under any conditions? Do you how to roll it bigger and bigger? We could know everything but we can know something very well. Don't put your money in anything you doesn’t understand. Stick to strategies you know and understand. *** Human is emotional animal. You must be aware of your emotions and the crowd. If the crowd is too bearish but you are sensible and have gut for chances, you could hold something for your future. And if the crowd is too bullish and you become alerted for the probability that the music could stop suddenly, you’ll be prepared for worst-case scenarios. Do remember getting too emotional about the market may cloud your judgment and damage your portfolio. *** Don't tell you "stop losses are all" or "buy and hold forever is the key for successes!" They are not the magic words for fortune but need some necessary conditions to use for the success. Price is all. Without matter how clever you are if you buy at the price more than you sell regularly, you would be doomed. You have to buy for margin of safety in the time period you would like to hold. Do remember you could make human errors. No matter how you analyze the market, get out of a stock when you’re wrong, and stay in when you’re right. *** It’s easier said than done, but essential for stock market survival. So don't fully trust yourself or anything in the stock market except the enough margin of safety! At last but not least important don't waste your hardship in the stock market. The past one year was horrific to the retail traders and investors. The GFC crash made everyone in fear. It was a attrition war. Too many of retail traders and investors have been consumed. The worst image becomes worsen. The assets with risky image have being burnt on the fire. Nearly all of trade forum have become ghost towns. It hurts us so much and then no crying is enough but silence. *** If you would not die silently or Hmm in the side line you have to be reborn! How? Inverting, inverting, and inverting until you are sure you get the chances with the affordable risks!
