In this way, the loser stocks will get time to recover and they might get their initial investment back. Moreover, in the meantime, they can get some profits by selling their good stocks. However, this is the wrong approach. In this way, you are limiting your upper level and increasing your lower level. That is, you are limiting how much you can get profits as you have already sold your good stocks.
But, you can suffer even great loss as the loser stocks are still in your portfolio. If you want not to lose money in the stock market, then you should use the opposite approach.
5 things you need to do if you keep losing money in the stock market
You should limit your lower level and maximize your upper lever. This can be achieved by holding to your winners and cutting your loser stocks. Patience is the key to success in stock market. The only thing that you need to do in the stock market is to buy good stocks and give it time. This is the only way to make money here. However, most people who lose money in the stock market do not have patience. They want a quick result. However, this is not the only problem with such investors. Here, the lack of patience misfires on their intelligence of choosing a decent stock.
This is the last reason that I want to mention that why people lose money in stock market. Imagine a scenario. What will you do now? All your known people are getting great returns by investing in that stock. Will you invest in that stock too? If you blindly follow everyone and buy that stock, then you are most likely to lose money.
Everyone has some plans and strategies for their investment. Maybe when you thought to buy, he was planning to sell the stock in a few days thinking it as overpriced. And after studying the company completely, if you are satisfied, then only invest in that stock. Apart from the above, there are other couples of reasons also like investing in futures and options, frequent trading, lack of self-control etc that are responsible for most people losing money in stock market. If you have any suggestions or reviews, feel free to comment below. I will be happy to reply.
Besides, here is an infographic on why most people lose money in stock market. Feel free to share it with your friends so that they can also avoid loss in the market.
