Why start investing
Investing is the opposite of spending money in the present; it saves money for the future in the expectation that it will grow over time, but equally important, it also carries the risk of losing money which is why it’s important to utilize all of the tools at your disposal when you invest.
One such investment vehicle is buying stocks. Ideally, through buying stocks, you will be able to increase your money and outperform inflation over time. As you move closer to your financial objective, you can gradually reduce your stock holdings and increase your bond holdings, which are typically more secure.
The easiest and most common approach for beginning investors to get exposure to stocks is through the stock market. Investing in stocks is simply purchasing small shares of ownership in a publicly-traded company.
By investing in these modest shares, you’re hoping that the firm will grow and prosper in the long run, which is the aim. As a result of the company’s growth, in the future, other investors may be willing to pay more for your shares, and if you decide to sell them, you’ll be able to make a healthy return.

Commons mistakes by novice investors
An inexperienced investor is prone to making costly errors due to overconfidence, impatience, or even naiveté. However, these blunders may be quite expensive; therefore, learning how to avoid them is highly recommended.
Before you begin investing, it is essential to obtain some knowledge in order to maximize your profits and minimize your losses. After reading this guide, you’ll have a better sense of the mindset you’ll need, the expectations you may have, and the techniques that will be most effective. Here’re the most common mistakes made by novice stock traders:
- Buying Penny Stocks: Traders may purchase Penny Stocks for as little as $5, with many of them trading for as little as 800. For new traders, the appeal is that you can get a lot of shares for not much money. However, it is common for these stocks to sink to zero, and just a handful soar. It’s also worth noting that unprofitable businesses may easily be manipulated by scammers hype up online “pump-and-dump” in schemes.
- Not diversifying: Not diversifying enough is another common investing mistake. Owning ten energy companies and ten electric vehicle (EV) companies is not diversification. A drop in the price of oil or gas could change the fortunes of half your portfolio, as could chip shortage that could put factory production on hold. By investing in a range of industries and a range of countries, you can mitigate the risk.
- FOMO and buying stocks at all-time highs: Purchasing shares at a downturn in the market may result in significant gains in the future. It is better to avoid succumbing to the fear of missing out (FOMO) and buying shares at all-time highs. At times, exercising restraint and patience is the most sensible course of action. However, this does not imply that if the value of a certain stock falls, you should buy more. Do some research before purchasing any further shares.
- Not paying attention to investments: Even if you want to be a buy-and-hold investor, you shouldn’t ignore companies you’ve already bought. Keep up with them if you want to get the most returns on your investments. Most recommend doing so at least once a quarter. Look at their quarterly financial reports to see how the business is performing and what the management says about it.
As it can be clearly illustrated from the graph, the price is ranging in a sideways moving rectangular box. After some consolidations, we would normally expect some serious impulsive moves. Zooming out and analysing the higher timeframe charts (Daily, Weekly, Monthly), we can observe that the price is rejecting and forming a top at the previous Lower Low levels.
