So, what lessons can be taken from Stock Market fluctuation?
Don't panic...,be patient...,and enjoy long-term success.
Try to read the Stock Market table once a month, or even better, once a year. If anyone tells you that some stocks have rapidly decreased in value, the first thing to think is "Good! It is time to buy some more!"
Remember that investing is not easy. Throughout every year, Stock Market values decrease or even fall, and it's tempting to sell your stocks before they fall further. This kind of act is not recommended. By holding your stocks, you can actually save your money.
So, when is the right time to sell? Actually, there is no right time . Your Investment Manager will sell your stocks, but only if they know something really important has happened at the company, such as failure of a newly launched product, increasing competition etc. Good Investment Managers with long-term orientation never ever sell stocks due to high prices or panic selling. Remember...do not sell your stocks or Mutual Funds unless you have achieved the goal you set when you bought them.
In a nutshell, buy stocks/Mutual Funds using funds that you do not need in a short term. And do not forget that "time period" in this case is more important than "timing" itself.
