Trading 101: The Most Important Part of Any Trade

Buying a stock is the easy part.  Knowing when to sell – that’s the hard part.

None of us want to part ways with a winning stock. But if you don’t have an efficient exit strategy, that winning stock could become nothing more than a dud. Far too many of us trade on emotion. We don’t want to sell our winners, fearing we’ll miss another leg up in the stock. 

A Sure Way to Know When to Sell High

Buy low, sell high -- it’s an easy rule to follow. 

Unfortunately, selling is often the hardest part. 

“Jeez, if only I held that stock for one more day.  I could have been up another $2,500” is often the thought process. What we fail to consider is that we made money. We accomplished the initial goal. Better yet, we didn’t lose anything.

Analysts Turn Bullish on Gold, But Beware

Investors piled into gold in June 2019, sending the precious metal to a six-year high.

All thanks to tensions with China, a more dovish Federal Reserve, and the latest “hard-hitting” sanctions on Iran after a U.S. drone was shot down. Remember, gold is a safe haven and a good store of value during times of a weaker dollar, slowing economic activity, and geo-tensions.
