Learn The Stock Market Game

 

Learn The Stock Market Game; Expert opinions are akin to Trash

Forget your political orientation; this is not about politics but a simple exercise to illustrate why there is a familial resemblance between most experts and mules; they make a lot of noise but in the end, provide nothing of substance.

 Learn The Stock Market Game: Lesson Number 2

Listen to investors with a record, like Sir John Templeton.

1. Invest for a maximum total real return. In other words, take inflation into consideration
2. Invest – don’t trade or speculate
3. Remain flexible and open-minded about types of investments
4. Buy low
5. When buying stocks, search for bargains among quality stocks
6. Buy value, not market trends or the economic outlook
7. Diversify. In stocks and bonds, as in much else, there is safety in numbers

8. Do your homework or hire wise experts to help you
9. Aggressively monitor your investments
10. Don’t panic
11. Learn from your mistakes
12. Begin with a prayer
13. Outperforming the market is a difficult task
14. An investor who has all the answers doesn’t even understand all the questions
15. There’s no free lunch
16. Do not be too fearful or negative too often   Franklin Templeton

Three Priceless quotes on Investing from Sir Templeton

“To buy when others are despondently selling and to sell when others are avidly buying requires the greatest of fortitude and pays the greatest ultimate rewards.“

“Bull markets are born in pessimism, grow on scepticism, mature on optimism and die on euphoria. The time of maximum pessimism is the best time to buy, and the time of maximum optimism is the best time to sell.”

“If you want to have a better performance than the crowd, you must do things differently from the crowd.”

Word to the wise

Don’t waste time trying to predict the exact top or bottom in a market. This endeavour best left to fools with plenty of time on their hands. Trying to identify the exact top or bottom is like trying to catch a falling a dagger; a painful process fraught with pain and failure.
