After lunch, timing is 12.30-5.00PM with preopening at 2.00PM.

As Warren Buffett said, “Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.”

2. CHECK YOUR EMOTIONS

Investing in stock can affect your financial condition in a big way. You can not make a decision with your gut or if your just ‘feeling’ like it. Many investors fail in stock trading because they do not check their emotions and make a decision in a jiffy.

There are terms for how you feel about the market. When a trader thinks negative about the market he is being bearish and when he feels the market will go up he is being bullish.

But your market opinion should be based on analysis not just on the basis your feeling or affected with other investors.

3. CALCULATE YOUR RISK TOLERANCE

According to the definition risk, tolerance is “the extent to which a person chooses to experience a less favorable outcome. In the pursuit of a more favorable outcome.”

In laymen terms, how much you are ready to lose to gain much better.

The KLSE market can be volatile and be very uncertain at a time. If you know how much you are ready to lose it will make steer clear of all the dangerous time in the trading market.

4. ALWAYS GO FOR LONG RUN

If you will need the money you are investing in two or three years then do not invest in stocks. Stocks are not for your short-term financial goal.

The growth of your portfolio depends upon the capital you have invested and for how much time you have invested. Return on investment is highly affected by the time of investment.

Make a plan when you will need the money, is it for the college education or for a retirement plan.

But we highly recommend investing in KLSE stocks for the long-term.

5. DIVERSIFICATION IS YOUR FRIEND

Diversification is a strategy for risk management.

There are many types of stocks available in the Bursa Malaysia. There is a small, mid and large cap stocks. There are sector wise stocks energy, banking, real estate and many more.

Diversification is investing in different types of stocks. We recommend you to invest only 10% of your money in the particular type of stock.

6. INVEST IN COMPANIES NOT STOCKS

Its normal to forget about the real business behind the number and stock quotes you see in Bloomberg or Reuters. You see the number and get all pumped up by looking at high dividend and ROE.

Mr. Buffett recommends

“It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price, than a fair company at a wonderful price.”

You don’t have to become a businessman to understand the company. But you have to understand the business they are doing, what is the demand of that business, what could be the future of it.

You will see an overwhelming amount of information and will want to invest in it but you have to take care of all the prospect to take care of the investment portfolio.

7. OVERACTIVE TRADE IS NOT FOR YOU

Checking you stock once quarterly is enough. Its when you receive a quarterly report from the company. This will be enough for you.

It is tempting to look for the stocks performing every now and then. This will make you overreactive and you will end up making stupid decisions. Minor fluctuation in KLSE stock price will affect your decision making. This is overactive trading.

Records have suggested that about 20% of investors who traded over actively earned an average net annual return 5.5% less than the least active investors.
