    Slight not what's near, while aiming at what's far.

    Many investors deal with a difficult market environment like we are experiencing now by focusing on the longer-term. They tell themselves "I'm holding good, fundamentally solid stocks and they will eventually bounce back, so I'll just ignore the short-term weakness." If your holding periods are long enough and you are indeed holding good stocks, that can work out just fine.

    However, for the more nimble and flexible individual investor, returns can be enhanced greatly by focusing on the near-term. If you are interested in establishing a position in a stock for the longer-term during a weak market, you can increase your ultimate returns and reduce risk quite a bit by staying patient and waiting for better technical conditions to emerge.

    When the market is weak, investors tend to underestimate how long such conditions will last. They grow very fearful that their favorite stocks -- which are starting to look like bargains -- will suddenly reverse and go much higher without them. There is often great anxiety about trying to buy at the exact low point: This results in deploying too much precious capital too fast. When the object of our affections doesn't turn up as we had anticipated, we are already so heavily long that we find it very difficult to be patient and we end up selling for a loss just to calm our anxieties.

    There is something in most traders that drives us to buy a stock too early rather than late. Although we are equally wrong and are in the same basic position financially, we generally are inclined to be quick to put our money to work rather than late.

    One cause of this is that traders are inherently impatient. They want an immediate payback and they project that desire onto their trades. If they don't have money in play they can't generate profits, so they put some in play even if the odds aren't particularly favorable.

  • Tore on muidugi kuulda sellistest suurtest ning riigikaitse seisukohalt tähtsatest hangetest kuskilt mujalt kui valitsuse käest...:(
