When things seem to go wrong for you in the markets it’s usually because of one or two things.
Remember: The Markets Don’t Care How You Feel about something.
Your “feelings” allow them to pick you pocket 99% of the time. They’ll allow you that 1% to keep you coming back.
It’s kinda like playing golf.
If you’ve ever played 18 holes of frustrating golf, you’ll know what I mean. It may seem like you can’t do anything right but you get that “one shot” that feels so good it’ll keep you coming back.
It’s like buying that “one stock” that keeps going up.
The difference is, after a few hours, your golf game is over and you focus on other things.
Unfortunately, when the markets turn against and your “one stock” starts to tank, there’s nowhere to run or hide.
And, unlike a round of golf, you can’t get your losing stocks out of your mind.
If that’s happened to you then you’ve been a victim of how the markets use emotions to force your actions.
It’s the oldest trick in the book and yet, most people are blind to it.
It’s also one of the biggest reasons why you should have a game plan for investing that takes you EMOTIONS out of the picture.
We illustrated how this works in an article called “The Case for Owning Individual Stocks (not Mutual Funds or ETF’s),” and you can read it (HERE).
Eventually you know the markets are gonna mess with your mind.
Instead of getting caught where there’s Nowhere to Run or Hide, position yourself to win by taking your emotions out of the picture. (HERE)
You’ll thank us later.
