Thing One


4 Tips For Dealing With Bad Investing Impulses


(The following is from an article on by Dana Anspatch that discusses how to avoid making emotional investign decisions)


1. Do Nothing


A conscious and thoughtful decision to do nothing is still a form of action. Have your financial goals changed? If your portfolio was built around your long-term goals (as it should be), a short-term change in markets shouldn't matter.


2. Know That Your Money Is Like a Bar of Soap


To quote Gene Fama Jr., a famed economist, “Your money is like a bar of soap. The more you handle it, the less you’ll have.”


3. Never Sell Equities in a Down Market


If your funds are allocated correctly, you should never have a need to sell equities during a down-market cycle. This holds true even if you are taking income.


Just as you wouldn’t run out and put a for-sale sign on your home when the housing market turns south, don’t rush to sell equities when the stock market goes through a bear market cycle. Wait it out.


4. Trust That Science Works


A disciplined approach to investing delivers higher market returns. Yeah, it’s boring; but it works. If you don't have discipline, you probably shouldn't be managing your own investments.
