Why do most people lose money in the market?

The answer is simple. Most people subconsciously gamble when they are investing.

People thought the passing of Steve Jobs would have crushed Apple’s stock.
Fact: Apple stock reached all-time high in 2015, years after the passing of the great innovator.

People thought Facebook stock would have gone to stratosphere right after its IPO .
Fact: It took the whole 2013 for Facebook stock to climb back to its 2012 IPO price.

The difference between investing and gambling is clear: A plan.

Inspired by classics such as Jesse Livermore’s biography, Reminiscences of A Stock Operator and Nicholas Darvas’ How I Made 2,000,000 in the Stock Market. I, Investor would dazzle you with thought-provoking investing probes.
