Investor Guide

Are you feeling scared

Given the recent market volatility, addressing any concerns you may be experiencing is essential. Suppose you've found yourself feeling uneasy amidst the recent sharp declines in stock prices. In that case, you probably haven't encountered such situations, which may mean you're not an experienced investor. It's important to understand that both novice and seasoned investors should be aware that short-term fluctuations in stock prices do not necessarily translate into long-term risks for stock investments.


Recognizing this differentiation is of utmost importance. Managing emotions within the realm of investment is indeed a skill that requires time and practice to master. Achieving success in stock investing involves a combination of analytical rigor and the ability to navigate the emotional dimensions of the market.


Here are three quotes from stock market experts underscoring the significance of emotional discipline:


"Invest for the long haul. Don't get too greedy and don't get too scared." - Shelby M.C. Davis


"A 10% decline in the market is fairly common—it happens about once a year. Investors who realize this are less likely to sell in a panic, and more likely to remain invested, benefitting from the wealthbuilding power of stocks." - Christopher Davis


"A market downturn doesn't bother us. It is an opportunity to increase our ownership of great companies with great management at good prices." - Warren Buffett.


I also recommend immersing yourself in the book 'Psychology of Money'  by Morgan Housel, as it imparts invaluable insights into the psychological aspects of investing.


Happy investing!
