Good question,

If one is satisfied with profit we can sell anytime we want as thee is no law when in investing to say you need to hold forever.

But note that there is something call selling too early ( which I am guilty of ) as we do not understand the market behavior during certain times. This is when an investor with patience reap better results.

Sometime we have no way to outsmart the market.


Just think about JKH or NEST. How many sold for Rs 230, 250, 270, Rs 280 etc think I have enough profit or my profit target met 40% . So if you buy a reputalble company as an investment and not as a 10% short term trade your gians can become higher as you may sell below its value.

So 60% can become 80% easily if we do not have a trading mentality. Sometimes soo as you sell it will go up.


At the same time there is no such thing as blue chips being fundamentals always. They can get overvalued. So if you proft target is met and the trend is done, nothign wrng in selling.



But I do agree all this is easier said than done and time period of holding is arguable as it depends on what your targets are.

All am saying iws there is a difference between short term trading vs longer term investment

There is a diffrence in selling JKH as you have 50% profit after holding for 2 years vs selling CDB at Rs 50 after buying for Rs 45 and holding for 1 month.

Still the theory is correct. Isnt it..?

It's time for you to learn some arithmatics. One can buy single share at 17 rupees in 1985, owner will have many number of shares due to splits etc though tag price is low so that his wealth is increased. So it's simple, Check whether the market capitalization of individual companies as well as the whole market has come down to the same level as in decades ago unless it become bankrupt.

If 'information' is available to everyone at the same time then there is a possibility of getting in & out at the right time. But as it works on CSE we get in after it moves up and get out once it come down.!!!!

if what goes up must come down is correct then

US $ should come down to Rs.10
land prices in pettah and Fort should come down to 100 per perch same like in 1940 s

Dont forgot, OnceWAPO was trading at Rs. 10000, BUKI was trading around Rs.8000 if I am correct.

for me there are different players in a market and its difficult to pinpoint which is the best strategy.some prefer to hold longterm without locking profit whereas some who like quick action tend to sell when the price is right. for some they plan their trades and exit when opposite signal is triggered according to their trading strategy. so its not good to argue which is better because but to respect every player in the market.there are may be others with scalping for tiny movements and increase liquidity in the market,where as some argue they are killing the market.
so we need to respect different of opinions.
for me i fall into the 3rd category to trade according to a plan....

TAH,
Are you fulltime at CSE or does other things?


Anyway,we need all kinds of people to make the market. Short term, long term, traders etc. The problem happens if one kind becomes the majority during a certain period. We saw what happed in 2011 to 2012 june. But looks like market has exhausted most of the panic sellers.



If one has time to dedicate to CSE constantly then one can try to figure out ways to optimize profit.
