90% of investors lose money - Koon Yew Yin

Author:   |    Publish date:


Today is the 8th day of the 8th month of the year which is an auspicious day to write this lesson for investors.  

I just Googled “what percentage of people lose money in the stock market” and the answer was 90%. 

There is an old but famous joke about stocks and the stock market. If you have lost some money in the stock market and feel bad about it, don’t worry. Ask somebody you know about their losses in the stock market, and you will feel better that you lost less money.

While this joke has been going around for several decades now and is still quite relevant because there is absolutely no shortage of people who lose money in stock markets daily. According to popular estimates, as much as 90% of people lose money in stock markets, including both new and seasoned investors.

People often lose money in the markets because they don't understand economic and investment market cycles. Business and economic cycles expand and decline. The boom cycles are fuelled by a growing economy, expanding job market, and other economic factors.

People also often lose money in the markets because they let emotions—mainly fear and greed—drive their investing. Moreover, they often lose money, because they are not lucky. Luck is when preparedness meet opportunity.

You must remember that our ultimate aim in life is happiness and the key to happiness is contentment. Don’t be greedy and take risk in the stock market.

OTB I do not feel proud to make money from BSL.
I wish to recommend a good fundamental stock to make money.
I apologize to my followers if I recommended a lousy stock.
Thank you.

emsvsi Dear readers,


It is clear commenters are only here for themselves

For example Ooi Teik Bee posting about his 'track record'

Or others who ridicule Mr Koon so they can feel better about themselves

Much sad


Sincerely,
