One Of The Great Things About Stock Investing

One of the great things about stock market investing is you do not have to do something all the time. In fact, most of the time the best thing that you can do is do nothing. You know, look out of the window, go to the movie, drink beer. Most of the time, people think they have got to jump around and do something and that is when they make mistakes. Just wait, it is going to happen. If you saw some money lying in a corner, you would go over and pick it up, would you not? Well, just wait, and when you see something like that in the investment world, when you know there is money lying over there in the corner, run over and pick it up. That is when you do something.
