I have no credit worries so I will not sell at a lose (even a cent).
Wait for One & half cycle (Gain / Lose / Gain) to go to exit with profit (with minimum of 20% return).
What is your strategy for successful investment ?

Broker credit, sell at a loss, and long term holding, all are part of good investment management

You can not be a good investor unless you use all techniques.

Why sell at a lose when I am here to make more ? Shocked

lets say you 1,000,000/- and invested all at market peak assuming you bought BFL at 500Rs and you bought 20,000 shares.... and the price fell to 100 now you are sitting with a massive unrealised loss. If you had a good exit strategy where your risk is less than reward then you would have exited with min damage.

And you are already out of the trade....

There are many examples we can think where some counters have never recovered.....so this is only my opinion and i am not trying to impose my will on you....so do not mis understand me .... Very Happy



So this example only for illustration purpose only.....

I will not enter when something is on the upward trend & that is why 1 1/2 cycle.
Get out when I assume that the zenith is closer now than wait for it to roll down again.
Hitherto I have not lost a cent here & I am quite happy knowing well my limitations. Very Happy

Good question.. I'll tell u why Wink

Well its all abt the oppertunity loss holding on to some shares like dear to our life..

We cant make a win everytime.. 70-80% success is a good rate.. sometimes we enter into investments and we hold on and never sell.. however markets circulate on cycles it can have bull/bear periods..

BFL was a good example as TAH pointed out.. In that way ur approach of decent profits make sense..

On the other hand if you hold something for years even if u buy it at a beatendown time, many profit making oppertunities u lose..

Thanks for all the responses but I am still not convinced why to sell at a lose.
One & and half cycle ploy works for me and it comes much faster and often than I initially anticipated.

It is mainly a matter of experience with common sense.

Yes, specially for the biginners who are not experienced enough to respond to volatile market signals. Its true that it involves a certain level of opportunity cost, but its safer for the novice to be passive for some time untill he learns the tricks.

No Pawns or Queens . What you have in hand is what you bought. All are your babies which you have bought previously.

When you buy you think it is a queen but later realize it is a pawn, so there is a serious flaw of way of buying.

Think before buying, Think while holding, and think before sell..That much I can tell you..
