Ok...There were discussion on Dollar Cost Averaging and JKH.

Quotes

Small writes

My Buying strategy is - Buy in chunks.. And the golden rule is not to average down more than once
surely bottom cant be

Ying-Yang writes

5300 is the Rock bottom to happen in Dec

Xmart writes on Buffet strategies

but would his strategies suite common investors like us?

Smallville wirtes again

Im small man u noh, cant afford to lose

***********************************

When we were buying JKH in 2007/8 we were engaged in the Final Eelam war. 2008 December Global Fiancial crisis. No one knew the end of the falling and rock bottom.

I was not buying chunks and never stopped Dollar Cost Averaging. You can see the quantities and values I was buying and definitely I was not a Big Fish.

Can we follow Buffet strategies?
Does it apply to SL and CSE?

Ok..

Find whether following chart of my own trading , investing data give you some idea on above.


   

Seems I have to cut down the post into slices as ' Posted Message is Too Long"

If you are an investor or a trader, keep your own data.

Your past will teach you more than anything else.

Now I traded JKH initially and the trading was fast buying and selling

What I sold at 170 reached 218.

So re-entered believing half heartedly the price will further appreciate. But unlike earlier 1000s , I bought in 100s so I can easily average if price falls. and it happened.

When it fell down to 118 I again bought a 1000 to average and with the view that we are nearing the rock bottom. It failed.

At 86 I bought another 1000 believing that it is the rock bottom. Wrong.

At 50s I bought 3000 beleiving that is the rock bottom and truly that was.

Finally I have invested around 1 Miilion averaging 102.90 and a good quantitiy to be sold immediately after ending war .

Had I bought Chunks?
had I not averaged?

Definitely Ying-Yang would come up with more profitable sloution showing how foolish I was. But my strategy worked for me.

Thanks YK.
Your own mistakes; success should be the pillars of your trading strategy.
As trading; investment inextricably intertwined with your risk appetite and emotions .
There won't be another person who is a perfect match to your attibutes.
So it's up to us to formulate a strategy at which we are comfortable with.
So the past data will assist you immensely in formulating such.

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

My friend,
How can that be 20% annualized?

In investments, we should talk of effective compounding rates.

It should be something like 14.1%

Ok call it options

If the share you purchased slide

1. Sell it at loss- stop loss

2. Do nothing- laissez faire

3. Average

What else can we do ?

The strategy is to know, what to do of that with which share.

What you do with JKH might not have worked for; say, GREG.

Exactly.... Shares like JKH , COMB, you can hold.

Shares like TPL, Asiy, Vpel, Rexp etc if entered at the right price will give you higher dividend yield than FD rate.. so you can happily hold unless ground situation change...eg;Iran sanctions., electricity rates etc.

Shares like Greg, Blue, East, Lanka Cement, should not be averaged and just stop loss will work. Just trade

To learn to limit, first, you must get burnt a few times YY.
(Otherwise, you will not know how far to put it).
