The most important lesson I learned from investing is that the market is the market is the market is the market. The price of the stocks rise and fall depending on the market. If we have the patience then we can make money, else we lose it and someone else is going to make it.
The other lesson I learned is that if we don’t become aggressive we won’t be able to make money and if we don’t become defensive we won’t be able to keep it. So there must be balance between being aggressive and being defensive. Of course it’s difficult but it doesn’t mean it’s unattainable.
