Investing Yourself in Your Investments
When it comes to the financial markets and investing in them, one of the biggest mistakes that people make is that they fail to make the effort to know what they are doing. They are playing the market without knowing what the difference between a put and a call. They have no idea what a butterfly or straddle is. Nor do they know the difference between going short and going long. Forget about being inexcusable, this is unforgivable. Do your homework. Spend some time doing the research and understand what you are doing.

You’d be excused for thinking this is a rookie error but sadly it’s not. It’s one of the problems why Wall Street fared so badly in the second half of 2008. Many people were doing things they didn’t truly understand. Overleveraging was a massive problem as was sub-prime lending. People were happy to cash the profits but weren’t too concerned what the cost of them was.

The same thing happened with Barings Bank and Nick Leeson. When he was making unauthorized speculative trades this was ok because his £10 million profits accounted for about a tenth of Barings annual income. He received a bonus two and a half times his annual salary. But when things went south and losses grew to over £200 million they turned his back on him.

You don’t normally hear the sob stories because no one wants to tell them. Everyone only brags about how well they did. But one has to truly appreciate the risks of playing the market. Like anything the potential ups equal the downs and one has to be prepared for both outcomes.

The problem is when people look for short cuts and like most things, you can’t rush things. You just have to let them be and let things take their natural course. If you don’t have any patience, than the financial markets definitely aren’t for you. The same if you are worrier. Do you really want to be logged in to your computer or Blackberry every second of the day monitoring your portfolio and seeing how much money you’ve gained or lost in the last 80 seconds?

Investing is meant to be a step to take care of you at the end of your life. It’s meant to take your worries away. It isn’t meant to be the source of your worries.
