What's the biggest thing investors screw up?
I've thought a LOT about that question. And I know that the answer will help a lot of folks avoid big losses.
Investing is full of pitfalls. Even if you buy the right investment, your trade can go south in plenty of different ways. And after years of writing and talking to my readers, I think I've uncovered the most obvious issue...
Most investors have no idea when to sell.
This is a tough realization for many. When you're clicking "buy," you don't want to stop and think through what would cause you to sell. It's exciting to make an investment... No one wants to kill the thrill with the homework of selling.
The problem is that a great trade is made up of two things... a great buy and a great sell.
