I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Help me! I am still losing money in my Investment Quadrant - Part 1

Money Mind and mindset

Why do I keep losing in the stock market?

"Successful stock investing starts from stock analysis and continue from it." - Createwealth8888

Some DIY retail stock investors are still not very clear between Stock Analysis and Stock Investing. Many are still stuck in the stage of Stock Analysis and didn't really advance themselves into the stage of Stock Investing.

Knowledge, skills and mindset related to Stock Analysis and Stock Investing is different and require different approach.

Stock Analysis

Stock Analysis is about having a view on the market and/or a stock by either fundamental analysis or technical analysis or both.

Some may even throw in Hope Analysis in addition to FA and TA.

The end result of such analysis will be a trigger to buy or sell or hold decision on your stock or stocks in your portfolio.

Stock Investing

For retail stock investors, it is about using their limited investing capital to make net return to meet their investment goals over their investing life-cycle.

Stock Investing is different from Stock Analysis. Stock Investing is about making a net return on investing capital while focusing strongly on money, portfolio and risks management.

Successful stock investors will diligently measure and track their portfolio performance and are very concerns over the net returns over a period.

They may revise their methods or change strategies in their stock analysis when they discovered that their stock investing are not meeting their investment goals.

But there will be some retail stock "investors" who don't really care to measure or track their investing performance over a period and still thinking that they are investing?

Wake up, "investors" and stop getting stuck at Stock Analysis and start investing!
