Three Rules

There is no shortcut to making money in the real world. That holds true for the stock markets as well. You will keep hearing all the get rich quick schemes for making money in the stock markets. They usually promise a lot but there are underlying if and buts to each of these schemes. 

If you are in the stock markets for long term then the solution is to follow a few golden rules which will help achieve your objective of making money from the stock markets as well as avoid any pitfalls on the road to the riches. 

1

Think Long term

People definitely take risky bets in the short term and make huge amounts of money. The rule is that do not get swayed by any of these and understand what you need in the long term. You do not want your money to be gone but you need to have earned decent amount of returns on it. In a long term scenario you will ride out any slumps in the market and it has been proven historically that stock markets earn better than any other instrument if you take a time period of 10 years or more.

2

Buy Low and Sell High

Never get swayed by the market sentiments when sudden news results in stock selling. In fact at that time when everybody is selling you should be buying. That should be your mantra. Every fall should be a buying opportunity for you. It is a tough thing to do but once you achieve it you will make huge amounts of money in the market. That way you lower your cost of holding and gain huge percentages when the market is on the upswing. You can then sell at the higher prices.

3

Patience & Due Diligence

The third rule is that you need to have patience and determination in the stock markets. Patience to last for that long term benefit that you had envisaged when your entered the market. Most investors fall prey to the fact that they look short term and the minute they encounter losses they sell stocks and get out of the market. In fact at that time they should be investing more in the market to accumulate more stocks at cheaper prices. It pays to be patient.

“Every trader has strengths and weakness. Some are good holders of winners, but may hold their losers a little too long. Others may cut their winners a little short, but are quick to take their losses. As long as you stick to your own style, you get the good and bad in your own approach.”
