#2 Broker’s Recommendation

By direct broker’s recommendation or happen to spot an analyst’s forecast on TV or Newspaper?  What do you do?  You think about it.  What’s next?

 

 #3 Make a Quick Buck

Probably the top reason why you want to invest, especially when you don’t have much money or is in need of money.

 

#4 Listening to Rumours

Just came out of a private conference?  Or Spotted the CEO of a listed company coming out from another company office?  Heard something from an insider?

Do you or do you not?

 

#5 Trying their Luck

Would you get lucky today?  Is good fortune smiling on you?

 

#6 Learn a New Investment Instrument

Buy a stock in a foreign country or emerging market?  An ETF? Short Sell?  Buy a Put or Call?  Trade Index / Futures? Trade Interest Rate, FX, Gold … …

 

#7 Discover a New Investment Philosophy

Value Investing, Technical Analysis, Fibonacci, Algo Trading, Diversification, Modern Portfolio Theory, Contrarian … …

 

#8 Starting to Get Serious on Investment

Getting serious means to put in more money in investment.  Remove (sell) the bad ones and buy more potentially good ones.

 

#9 Building a Portfolio

Great science. Many buys and sells.

 

#10 Having Extra Savings

Either the money flow into the bank account, spending it or naturally, think about investing.

 

#11 Extra Bonus

Bonus is extra money.  It is frequently earmarked to fund extravagant lifestyle.  Why not turn the spending into speculation and possibly, doubling the money?

 

#12 Betting for a Better Car / Holiday

Extra savings and bonuses doesn’t come easy.  But what if you needed a little more money for a better car / holiday?  Do you wait till the next year?  It’s silly to go into a casino, so why not  … …

 

#13 Doubling on a Gambling Loss

Made a big loss gambling?  Or lost almost half your money in investments?  What do you do next?   Double up? Fortune favours the patience and risk-takers?

 

#14 Need the Money

Need money urgently?  Instant access, instant rewards or instant disaster?

 

#15 Take Profit

Why shouldn’t you?  What if it drops?

The advice ‘you never go broke taking a profit’ is foolish

~ Warren Buffett

 

#16 Happy with 5 or 10% Returns

Why take profit at 5% or 10%?  Why not?

 

#17 Happy with 20% or 100% Returns

That’s huge.  Why not take sell and lock in the profit?

 

#18 Been Holding it for 3 Years and Gain or Lost 80%

It’s been a long-time.  It’s about time.

 

#19 Just Trading

Buy, then sell.  Buy, then sell.  It’s pretty cool to look like the next stock market wizard.

 

#20 Nothing to do

Definitely a weird reason.  But if buying and selling makes you money, why not?
