The ONLY solution to this horrible, horrible problem - is to IGNORE what all the expert financial analysts are saying, and just do one thing: Invest consistently, and hold long term. If the markets go up - great, you make money. If the markets go DOWN - great, you bought in at a lower price. #2 Regret: Not investing aggressively enough If you’re investing money that you’ll need within the next few years, most likely - you shouldn’t be investing in anything speculative, or risky. Second, if you INVEST money, and you find yourself PANICKING when it drops a few percent…chances are, you invested more than you should’ve, you didn’t research the investment as well as you could have, and you’ll either need to make SAFER investments in the future - or remind yourself that investing is very much like a yo-yo, and that price swings are a normal, every day part of investing. #3 Regret: Wishing they had made MORE trades. Unfortunately, this is another one that’s easy to point to - in hindsight - after you’ve already seen how the market performed. But, in reality - not trading enough is really only a reflection of what information you know - in the moment - and based on how well you understand that particular investment. #4 Regret: Wishing they had invested more cautiously To me, this is a strong indication that you should more reasonably adjust your expectations, and if you cannot cover potential loss - you shouldn’t be investing that much in speculative investments in the first place. Especially if the overall market is UP 30%…and your biggest regret was going too big…the way I see it, that’s not investing…that’s gambling. And then…of course, we’ve got my favorite group…the 30% of investors who have no regrets. Because they understand the principles of long term investing, and they’re the people who smash the like button before the video even starts because they appreciate all the free content. So when it comes to investing, especially in 2020…all that matters is consistency. It’s such basic advice, but it’s so true…time in the market always beats timing the market. Every single time, for the last 100 years…just buy and hold. Try not to trade too often. And don’t get emotional….and you’ll come out VERY very wealthy in the future.
