Stock market for beginners
See if it is time to start moving into cash. Smart investors need to follow new strategies to make profit from falling stocks.
There is no shame in being in cash.
Most experienced investors trading their own account use this to their advantage. Knowing everything about Technical Analysis and Fundamental Analysis will not help you at all, if you refuse to move to cash when the market enters a serious bear phase. Money management and preservation of your capital is critical. If you risk too much and lose to much you will not have enough money to invest when the going gets good. The more you lose in a downturn the more you have to make on the upturn just to break even.
If you hit a losing streak, and it is not because what you are doing is wrong, that tells you the whole market may be going bad. If you have five or six straight losses, you want to pull back to see if it is time to start moving into cash. You can’t control what the market does, but you can control your reaction to the market. Smart investors need to follow new strategies to make profit from falling stocks.
Good luck and safe trading
