Life moves at lightning speed these days, and it’s easy to get caught up in short-term gratification. The greatest obstacle every investor faces is the instinctive tendency to do the wrong thing at the wrong time. The biggest threat to your long-term investing success is your reaction to short-term market conditions based on emotions and instincts.
Remember the three simple rules of investing 1) own equities, 2) diversify, and 3) rebalance. At Matson Money we will evaluate every investor’s account for rebalancing opportunities at the end of the quarter and will make the appropriate trades to keep your strategy on target. The best thing you can do for your confidence is talk to your coach, attend investor coaching and educational events, and don’t panic.
