Which Investing Decision Is The Toughest For You To Make?

Come and think of it, if we were to exclude those nitty gritty and detailed stuff of analysis (be it Fundamental Analysis or Technical Analysis), when comes to stock investing, there are actually only 4 core decision we (as retail investors) need to make.   

So, what are these? Let me briefly go through them...

1. Decision To Buy - This include WHAT and WHEN to buy?

2. Decision To Sell - This include WHEN to sell and at WHAT price?

3. Decision To Hold - Value Investors will practice this very well as they will hold the stocks for the long term.

4. Decision To Wait - This is where the investor accumulating their war chest and at a look out for the opportunity to strike, this is slightly different from the "Decision To Hold". 

At your current investing journey, which one if the toughest for your to make? For me, it is the "Decision To Buy" as usually I need to spend more time in making this decision.

Cheers!

    1. Cw8888 : hahaha... Too many favorite bloggers Liao and too "easy way out", still like the process of self analyzing even though it is more time consuming. But I will still use other favorite bloggers' indication as cross reference as I might missed out some blind spot..

    1. Hi LP: when I write the post my thinking of 1, 2 and 3 are more of relating to the decision on specific counters but 4 is more of general market sentiment related.. So, there is slight difference ;-)

  3. For me is "Decision To Buy"
    And when is more important then what.
    Getting the timing right even if you buy a "lemon" you should be selling it in time to make some money. See sell also need timing. How about when & what family you are born.

  4. Ah..... my England is poor! You miss the "when you are born". Imagine you are born in WW1 or WW2. Time really makes all the differences.
