4 Investment Rules That We All Know But Don’t Follow

Rules we all know:
Buy Low, Sell High
Let Profits Run, Cut losses quickly
Add to a winning position, not a losing one
Go with the trend

If we all know these rules, then why are there losers in the stock market? The reason is that we don’t follow them.

We know that we should buy low and sell high. If we take a loss, we bought high and sold low. How did that happen? Was it a hot tip in the market or did we want to jump on the bandwagon and buy a rising star that turned into a falling star. Did we do our research and due diligence or just jump in? Greed is the culprit. We get greedy and ignore our rules.

We know we should let profits run but cut losses quickly but we don’t do it. Why? We get greedy. We feel if we hold on a little longer it will turn around and we can get out with a profit. The problem is that it never does turn around or at least not when we want it to.

We know we should add to a winning position, not a losing one. Why don’t we do it? We don’t want to add to a winning position because dollar cost averaging will increase our cost basis. We add to a losing one because dollar cost averaging will lower our cost basis and we won’t have to wait for it to rebound as much to break even or make a profit. The problem is that it doesn’t rebound. Research in Motion (Rimm), Facebook (FB)

We all know we should go with the trend but choose to be a contrarian investor. We buck the trend because we feel that being a contrarian investor will bring better profits. That would work if we identified the trend and watched for Technical Signals or price and volume signals to let us know when to be contrary to the trend. Instead we throw caution to the wind and jump in.

In order to follow these rules and win, we need to adjust our mindset and put greed on the back burner. The trouble is that we have a hard time doing that and that is why there are losers in the market. We must control our emotions to be successful traders! We must invest with logic not emotions. We need to control greed.

Article Marketing. Article marketing is when you write about a product or service and post these articles freely on special websites. These websites were designed from the ground up to help people like you or I research and solve any problem under the sun. Your job as an article marketer is to connect these people with a service or product that may solve this problem.

This method of article marketing is also referred to as bum marketing. The name was coined by article marketing guru himself Travis Sago. He was referencing the fact that even a bum off the street with no money to speak of could make a living using this easy and free method.
