Avoid These Investing Mistakes

Avoid These Investing Mistakes

Nobody is perfect, but these are the biggest investment mistakes I see from frustrated investors using Dynamic Investor Pro investment software.

  • Only one or two groups, each with one trading strategy – this goes back to the old saying, “don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”
  • Has more than eight groups (usually way more) and frequently with 4 > 6 trading strategies in each – this is overwhelming. Studies have shown that managing anything (a portfolio, people) of more than eight not only becomes confusing, but lowers the results dramatically.  Stick with 4 > 8 groups each with 2>3 strategies.
  • Groups are based on stocks or funds, or ETFs, that they “like” – what we like may not be what is growing, what is gaining today.
  • Don’t stick with winners because their growth is “slow” – in today’s instant gratification world too often we turn away from a plodding winner that is moving steadily upward.
  • Want major gains every three months – don’t we all? This may be great for part of a portfolio, but long term, even 6 > 12 months, most strategies that show gains will grow your money as their gains are compounded over and over.

Are there other investing mistakes?  Sure, but we at Dynamic Investor Pro try to help you minimize those mistakes.

Varying Off the Trail, off the Strategy

Varying Off the Trail, off the Strategy While hiking to Scenic Point high up a mountain in Glacier National Park the other day I thought about varying off the trail.  And it reminded me of the calls I receive, asking “should I still follow my trading strategy or do xxxx?”  In other words, when should [...]
