How do I overcome my emotions?


It’s understandable that investors might be scared by the recent volatility in the stock market. But if you want to make money, you’ll have to do more than just sit on your hands.

Here are some tips for staying calm and making money:

1) Research the companies you’re thinking about investing in so that you know what business they do, how well it’s doing, how much it costs, who their competitors are, etc.

2) Don’t buy anything without a stop-loss order. That way you won’t lose any more money than planned if things don’t work out as expected.

3) If your stocks plummet (or go up), don’t panic and sell.


It’s important to recognize that every decision you make when it comes to trading stocks is influenced by your emotions. However, if you can stay grounded in logic and not let fear or greed take over, then you’ll be in a better position for success.

Luckily, there are ways that you can keep your emotions in check so that they don’t hold you back from making money with the stock market. For example, some people find it helpful to look at their past decisions as well as the reasons behind them. This way they can learn from their mistakes and avoid future emotional pitfalls. Others keep a journal where they write down their thoughts about stocks as well as what led them to buy them.
