1) Lets go one step at a time friend.  More people are active means more the market can get active too.

2) Well whether the market is active or not depends on how we view it.

ex 1 : If some shares in your portfolio is holding ground when other are loosing 20-30% that could be an active  achievement in a way

ex 2 : Even in  a market like this, if you can find occasional trading ops with your medium term shares ( even if at a loss trading somewhat helps to average atleast)  


ex 3: you can find more and more "gems" to match prices of 2012, might be a joy for some collectors




Totally agreed

In a market like this day trades can become long investments and long investments too can become day trades. You need to be on alert all the time if involve at this stage.

or else the other way is that following Warren Buffet and bag some good stocks with attractive earnings growth and forget assuming that CSE is closed for next five years.

Thanks All.
Last two days have been really fruitful.
Learned loads of things.These have more value than that of things in investing books which are enriched with experience of elsewhere.These are genuine learning of investors who involves with CSE.Above all learning of the people who share their precious learning for the betterment of fellow investors.Isn't that wonderful? Cool

Yes, short term/medium term trades can become long term holdings if we don't monitor the share movement  daily or control our emotions.

Specially penny shares losing 10 cents even can mean 10% loss .  Ex : If you buy Y share today at Rs 1 for a day trade and missed to sell same day and then couldn't check market for 3 days, maybe now it could be down 30 cents. ( 30% loss).  Then day trades can become long term holdings.

It has happened to me too.

It happens to me while back when RAL sold Richlife I miscalculated capital gain for RAL and bought maybe 500,000 or 1Mn shares around 5.5/= share. it was SLS asked me how did you come to the figure and then all of the sudden I realized that I haven't considered acquisition price of Richlife and then sold out around 5 I guess.

anyway, in addition to my above comment, most of us in CSE are not long-term investors, where even Dr. Senthilverl is a trader. common investors just like myself may put 5Mn, 10 Mn max to CSE because FD rates 10-12% per annum is not enough for us at the beginning of the investment. hence, I daresay, every person here is a trader at the beginning. when you are passing the stage I mentioned in the above comment, and reading and seeing other investors talk about long-term, fundamental stocks, and the Buffett, then with the overall frustration of trading losses you start to believe that we are now mature and in long-term investment.

we read about Buffett and his famous quotes like
Warren Buffett wrote:Do not put all eggs in one basket
Warren Buffett wrote:Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years

Well, Uncle Buffett is like Dhammika Perera they buy companies to control. so it doesn't matter market is closed for them or not. besides, there is another quote from Buffett,
Warren Buffett wrote:Diversification is protection against ignorance. It makes little sense if you know what you are doing
Warren Buffett wrote:If you aren’t thinking about owning a stock for 10 years, don’t even think about owning it for 10 minutes

Buffett himself is a wonderful investor who can identify good companies way before they perform. but would his strategies suite common investors like us? rather not, we if diversify our small capitals among 10-15 companies its very unlikely you get annualized return over 15% including dividant. baskets Buffett referring is not shares, what he meant was equity, real estate, and industries (financial and non- financial) and with his size capital (when he declare that wisdom in quotes) probably he can diversify in hundred of different baskets with controlling power.

so, here comes us. ordinary investors/ traders at the most illiquid market (as my experience) there are few players who push shares up and down, too much dependency on foreign purchases, declined economic development and controversial deals. therefore, in an unmatured market like CSE, even growth stocks are in cyclic waves. so, being a never sell investor is a hard but poor choice. just like being a virgin.

for example, let's say someone bought JKH at 50 Rs at 2009 Jan. if he is a never sell investor as of now his capital return is 200%, 20% annualized return while if he bought at 50 in Jan 2009 and sold it out in Oct 2014 ( let's not take 300+ fancy figures for selling, at that time JKH was supposed to go beyond 600+ with casino and warrant prospective- rather, in 2014 Oct seasonal investor would fundamentally and technically see headwind) at Rs. 250 he would have around 450% return on investment, annualized 75% return from JKH.

so there will be plenty of opportunity to in and out for people like us, that can be 1 month, 1 year or 5 year doesn't matter. the important point is the art of picking up the right companies and art of selling at right time, right price.

another example is, LFIN is a good solid company, we all agree I guess. in 2010 I bought LFIN at around 140 Rs and sold it for 250 in one week. 80% return in one week. perhaps people who bought LFIN in mid-2011 would see around 30% capital appreciation for all these 7 years.

therefore, like many things, there are no universal rules or holy grails for investing or trading. mastering own method and doing it better than other will make you a successful trader/ investor.

Cheer!

Food for thought.
Excellent write-up X.
I'm also trying to be a kind of person whome you are referring.
One could read thousands of books could follow certain success stories but real learning comes after several failed attempts.
We should also be mindful that eventhough there are success stories of super rich there are hardly any stories of millions of investors who failed miserably in this game of investing.

Most of the success stories that we read often are cooked up lies and sugar coated.
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell is a good book to read (if you have not done already).

stock market success stories, and failure stories are not written onto  books,,

Books are written by people who are successful in writing.

Successors and failures, both are hidden from public. and we never know them.

And losers cry foul only.  Very Happy  Very Happy

Often, we get to read biographies of many successful people all over the World.

Those stories sell and that is why publishers go looking for them.

But if taken percentage-wise, such successes are even less than 1%, compared to the world population.

Those who read such inspiring stories pick up a clue or two and try to apply in their own life but with very little success or none at all.

Can success be replicated?

Failures are galore and they can be seen everywhere.

Can failures be avoided?

But, if publishers are keen even finding stories which are of total failures, the trend of 1% versus 99% can be changed.

Because, some others have already made those mistakes in their own lives; so the rest do not have to, being well aware of the pitfalls on the way.

Although the odds are less on the side of being successful, the chance of success and or failure has the equal opportunity.

people don't want to hear bitter truth. everyone wants to win lotteries, everyone dream of becoming Warren Buffett or George Soros since the publisher hide the bitter part from readers or sugar coat it.

only academics study failures in the classroom as case studies.

Yes.. TA can show that some share can breakout or making a pattern but it aint accounted for sudden pushes or dumps.. Say if someone wants to dump JKH at 130, a massive quantity - there's nothing you can do as u already bought at support level of 130-135 thinking this level might hold. (But one could have always wait for an up signal rather than buying at a support). Although this level is a a good support, there's nothing u can do than holding.

Perhaps one sees some crap at certain levels - those are lower in recent terms.. Yet u omit them for crap and next thing u see is they up 10% - 20% next day.

Then again, u avg down at a certain place or u buy some funda share and wait.. your share is up 2-3 rupees but others up 10-20% - now what.. Its an opportunity loss.

So making right choice is an ART right?

What makes you hurt most;

Picking a wrong trade or missing a golden opportunity?

Both have happened to you; right?

Yes.. TA can show that some share can breakout or making a pattern but it aint accounted for sudden pushes or dumps.. Say if someone wants to dump JKH at 130, a massive quantity - there's nothing you can do as u already bought at support level of 130-135 thinking this level might hold. (But one could have always wait for an up signal rather than buying at a support). Although this level is a a good support, there's nothing u can do than holding.

Perhaps one sees some crap at certain levels - those are lower in recent terms.. Yet u omit them for crap and next thing u see is they up 10% - 20% next day.

Then again, u avg down at a certain place or u buy some funda share and wait.. your share is up 2-3 rupees but others up 10-20% - now what.. Its an opportunity loss.

So making right choice is an ART right?

Happy to see your long answer mate. It shows your interests.

There are theories on how you make choices.
My favorite theory is Subconscious mind theory.

When a trader is experienced enough, he develops a sense to sync with the market based on subtle clues 'invisible' to the 'conscious' mind.

Our 'thinking' happens at 'conscious' level. So, a master trader would make their actions without thinking, at 'subconscious' level.

There is also a theory says, the subconscious mind is associated with the right side of the brain. They also say, 'arts' are associated with the right side of the brain.

So, you can say; art and right choice both have some common roots.

Yes.
Thanks for the useful link, although I have the book already with me.
This another good one though it has no direct link to shares but has a big impact on the bigger picture.

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell is a good book to read (if you have not done already).

I feel that currency,trade and commodities will stabilize early next year. (oil story is a worry though). The debt repayment hits a sweet spot in 2023/24. I intend to try and hustle a 30 to 35 % return from the market with short and medium term plays and throw in the kitchen sink in 2024 and build my fixed income portfolio as I dont intend to be gazing at computer screens in my latter years.

Looking at reducing my Finco exposure and collect TJL. 2019 should be a good year for TJ with a few muted quarters coming up.
Btw, I saw the Neilsons Business Confidence Index imposed on the ASI chart since around 2010. Time to buy seems to be when the when the BCI is down, it has plunged last two months. Is there enough blood on the streets yet ? a bit more maybe ?
