Why do you buy this TV? Why don't you buy another one? Do you buy the quality without concerning about the price or price only without concerning about the quality? So why do you buy and sell the stock? Buy when the price is becoming dearer or when the price down? What're your rules and principles to buy and how long is your holding horizon? Read the posts around you would find too many clever words for fancy but few could be used for profit! Why? Logically you need to calculate what a stock is worth, based on the value of its businesses. However in the market how many retail market players do so? Most of us(including me) more often gamble that a stock will go up in price because somebody else will pay even more for it. Some prefer to buy the rumors and sell the news. Whatever we do we have to admit we act or behave against basic logic. *** We need to judge the market price by established standards of value. Unfortunately most of us don't know the value enough. When Banana price increased to $15 per kilo, most of people tried to find alternatives even they love banana very much. The incessant stream of stock quotes is like oxygen to most of market players. When the price drops down, the oxygen seems be cut off and most of retail market players seem at the end of the world. Could you have any better reasons about why so many people are crying loudly in the market? *** In fact the price is a matter much less matter. Why didn't sell in April when I could lock nearly doubled profit? I have to admit I was terribly greedy. I wanted the market to follow my will. Once the market turned to down and down, I realized my problems mentally and psychologically, but it was too late. Market doesn't tolerate any human errors without matter what your reasons. We, if intelligent and wise enough, have to be alerted by our own mental issues. You have to lock the profit when everyone cheers for better and higher price. The reason is very simple since once the price goes up, you would get less and less chances to get the profit. We need to own some stocks even we could not find the price everyday. Market can be a huge casino to anyone who gamble or bet on the horses. Gambling and winning is exciting things. If you are lucky you could be rewarded greatly. However lucks are few and could be very dear or need to wait for long time. How many people who calibrated the odds for wind direction just lose all? If you like to gamble and try your luck which is fine but you have to be sure most of your capital could work for you positively! Good news is that market is not a Casino if you don't want to play it as you are in the Casino. You could get the rules and principles and put the odds squarely in your favor. There are people who make money for themselves in the market and the people who trade them in for nothing. Are the winners are more clever to use the advanced system? It seems not. Why? I am trying to figure out! If you know the reasons you just give out your points.
