What you’ll hear in this episode:

Have you heard of the Investor’s Dilemma? It’s an interesting concept that tells why and how most investors, especially beginners, lose money.

The Investor’s Dilemma is a 7-step journey:

  1. Fear of the Future
  2. Forecasting the Future
  3. Track Record Investing
  4. Information Overload
  5. Emotion-Based Decision Making
  6. Breaking The Rules
  7. Performance Losses

In this episode, you’ll hear what happens in each step and the corresponding dilemma that occurs to the investor, which could cause them to make a mistake and lose money.

Excerpts and Highlights:

Invest with specific objectives in mind. You don’t invest just because you want more money in the future. There has to be a goal, a SMART goal, because that will determine where you should invest.

Do not blindly follow how and where other people invest. Each investment decision you make should be based on a logical and sound consideration of your resources and situation. Develop and follow a personal investment philosophy.

Never invest on anything that you don’t understand. Knowing how something works will help you manage your risk and avoid costly mistakes.

Always have an investment plan, which includes strategies for rebalancing and diversification.

Markets are unpredictable. You’re a boat in the vast ocean and you cannot dictate where the wind should blow, all you can do is control and adjust your sails so that you can keep moving forward.
