If you see your counters are more vulnerable for further loss and if you can find a good share trading at very low price and has good potential to rise in future sell at a loss and buy low.
Else hold on....
I sold COMB at a loss (not a huge loss .....) and bought DIST for example... For me at 180 DIST is very attractive...

if you are planing to sell and buy the same stock... I don't think it will work, cause most of the counters are at bottom. Dont forget the transaction cost which adds up. But if you sell some stock and buy a better stock, which could give you a better return, that's worth a risk

Buying at the lowest possible price is the key for me.
Ex: Eventhough BRWN, HAYL & JKH are undoubtedly great companies I would not buy those shares for the current prices.

Yes you can sell at a loss.
In past I had sold few counters at a lost & overall managed made profits out of that capital. But this should not be a regular thing.

If it is a good counter then hold it. Yes you need to sell shares for a profits dont you? Smile

It is very difficult to advise someone to sell at a loss with the intention of buying back at a lower price later. You may never get a chance to buy back at a lower price.

However, if you see a better oportunity with another counter and if you do not have cash in hand, you may consider to sell some of your shares at a loss and use that money to buy those better counters. In this case, you should be certain that the share you have idetified can give you a better return within the period you considered.

Unless the rebound continues today it looks a bit too late to sell and buy back most counters. But that's not because they are at a bottom as most people seem to think but because most counters are heading towards or are already in oversold territory.

For example many people think LGL has bottomed, I think they just reveresed after being oversold. They (and many other shares) will resume their slide next week.
