Who talks of losses
Rather than focusing on stock market movements investors' energies will be well spent in determining what will help them generate right returns to achieve their life goals.
It is quite normal for investors to get carried away with the reporting of movements in the Sensex or Nifty and associated number of percentage growth in various stocks and mutual fund NAVs.
It's quite common nowadays to go to a social function and hear some people talking about how they doubled their money in some mid-cap in a matter of few days. But they do not highlight how they lost 50 per cent by investing in something else.
