My stock are red, should I sell?
We all love when we are in a positive return on investment. It gives us more leverage in our future endeavours to grow our wealth, and we feel more confident. But then, if it turns red, what should I do ? Should I sell ?
Here are 5 points to help you during red days.
Do you think selling and then exiting with a loss is the best solution ? No. Averaging down for reducing your Stock Price average ? Yes ! Averaging down will enable you to lower your average price and when the stok price will be in an uptrend, your break even point will be easier to reach.
In fact, during a downtrend, it is the best moment to invest. This is why you always have to have spare cash in any situation. One downtrend ? Buy and keep cash. Another downtrend ? Keep buying and spare cash. There will be some point where you will see a consolidation of the stock price and you will know it will be about to bounce back.
Buy when it’s red and sell when it is green. !

Long term investment

The company is still working
Sometimes, the stock market is based more on speculation than real valuation. It means that even if the stock price will go up and down, the company you invested in is still working on how to grow. But once again, the fundamentals stay the same, and so should be your sentiment about a company.
