Investment decision based on recommendation by a family member/relative/a friend/ Emotions, there is a very high probability that this investment will end up being a loser. Investment is something we must make with our brains and not with our hearts. Have you ever heard of the saying “Water and Oil – Do Not Mix”? Emotions and Investments are almost the same.
Don't follow the herd. Do your research and stay invested. Don't sell just because people around you are doing it. If the stock reaches the target, book partial or full profit so that, in case the stock tumbles, you don't end up with a full red portfolio. The trick is to avoid greed and make wise decisions that can bring profit to us. Have a diversified portfolio. All wise investors know that they mustn’t put all their eggs in the same basket. Don't be afraid of making losses. Every person who claims he is a stock market guru would have incurred losses at some point of his life. Stop being a prisoner of your past. Become the architect of your future. Mistakes are important to make. But if you think about it, you have learned a lot from your bad choices

Good luck and safe trading!

Asoka's articles have always real value. Something any one can adopt as a part and parcel of the investment/trading life. Superb. Plus point from me.
