#791 I felt that I am more involved with the world more than before.

On May 14th my investment fund was closed.

I can’t sell and buy anymore in the fund. The day was that Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped $516. The market is fluctuating heavily recently but it is getting better since March. Although my fund was closed, I feel good. Because I did my best. I sold most of my stocks in 2 months.

It took me 6 times to finish selling all of stocks in 2 months.

I wanted to minimize the risk so I decided to sell my fund at different timings. In total, it took me 6 times to finish selling all of stocks. I couldn’t sell at a good price sometimes, but I think I did okay. Although I lost some money in my investment due to the covid-19 pandemic, I learned about the world trend by reading up on when to sell my stocks. I kept an eye on the world’s economic and political situations from the number of the death of covid-19, Trump’s twitters sometimes and etc. My friends also gave me a lot of advices.
Actually, I enjoyed a lot to check the market and to find out why the market went up and down.
I felt that I am more involved with the world more than before.

Now, since my investment has closed, I don’t have anything to do with the fund.
I am satisfied that it is all over now, but I also feel a little sad.

Things are connected to each other, you are always going to be involved in this network.

One thing I realize is that life is not at all under your control.
I didn’t want to sell at this time but Covid-19 changed the market completely. My investment company forced me to do.
I didn’t care much about the world trend but then I was paying so much attention to it because of the fund account closure. Things are connected to each other and as long as you are part of the world, you are always going to be involved in this network.

My account closure pushed me to pay attention to the world. Instead of waiting to be pushed, I think I should act proactively myself before the next big change.

投資で危機もあったけど、それを楽しめたようですね。
投資って、難しいんでしょ?
新聞を隅から隅まで見て、株価なんかチェックして、世界情勢も詳しい!というイメージですけど、どうでしょうか?
やってると勉強になりますよね。
ちょっとやってみたい気もしますが、やっぱり損をするリスクがあるものは躊躇してしまいます。
なにせ、元手が少ないもので。。。

確かに投資家のイメージは新聞の隅から隅まで読んで、世界情勢に詳しい、、、
これは一昔前で、今はPCで独自で組んだプログラムで株価を操作しているんではなかろうか。
私のは投資信託だから、頭は使わずコツコツと積み立てするだけです。
売る時は上がっている時に売らないと損なので、タイミングは気にします。
月に5000円くらいでもいいから、コツコツとやってみるのはどうですか?
今、始め時です!
