If you are participating in stock market investment, you will have your fair share of sad moments in stock market investments.

The saddest moment in stock market investment is when the company you invested in goes bankrupted. You will not get a single cent back.

Sad moments in stock market investment

That seldom happen. It is not usual for a big company to end up in bankruptcy.
However, there are many sad moments in stock market investment.

For example, you buy into a company when the whole stock market suffers a one-day fall. When the market recovers, practically every stock recovers, except the one you have bought.

That is a very sad moment in stock market investment. You will kick yourself for buying into that particular company when there are so many companies at a bargain price.

Another sad moment in stock market investment comes after you sell a stock. You may sell the stock at a loss in order to recoup capital to invest in a better company. You might have held the stock for more than year, and the share price never recovered.

However, the minute you sell the shares, the share price shoots all the way up. You could have made 200% profit if you sell a few days later. That is another sad moment in stock market investment.

You will not sleep for a few nights. You will ask yourself why you cannot hold for another few days when you had waited for one whole year.

Everyone knows buy low and sell high is the way to make money from stock market investment. It seems that the whole world manages to buy low and sell high, except you.

It seems that whenever you sell a stock, the share price increases. It seems that whenever you buy a stock, the share price drops.

That is why stock market investment is not for the weak heart. If you cannot sleep whenever you face the sad moments in stock market investment, it is better that you buy government bond. You can sleep better knowing that you can get dividend when it is due.

Stock market investment is one of the best ways to get rich. All the richest men in the world have participated in stock market investment at certain stage in their lives.

That is why you must learn to conquer your emotion and continue to participate in stock market investment.
