SHOULD RETAILS INVESTORS ACT LIKE BIG BROTHERS?

singapore stocks
Dear readers, there was a recent piece of article by Kishore Mahbubani which struck a little controversy by the message which some interpreted as “Small states should act like small states”. Actually, this whole issue is just about small states having to be prudent when it comes to interacting with the larger states while standing one’s ground.
After reading the article, I could see the analogy being played out in the daily stocks markets. Some retail investors think that they are the expert market big brother players and act like them by buying large number of shares but often at the incorrect timing. The result? These investors have to incur losses as they are not able to be as nimble as the professional traders and buy while others are selling.

As a retail investor, I stand my ground against the bigger market players by acknowledging that I am still entitled to have my fair share of investment gains from the stocks markets regardless of the professional, institutional or big brother players. But as a retail investor, I definitely know I have to be prudent too. This is achieved through buying selective stocks at the best timing. And also the holding power of the investments.
