I would say that if there is something harder then rocket science then selling stocks is the name for that. You can try and learn the formula called precise mathematical formula and you will be half way through with learning rocket science but when it comes to selling stocks; there is no formula to apply or to make calculations. Mostly I have seen investors researching and working upon buying stocks a lot more then compared to selling stocks; as a result, many of them confronts instant failures.
Mostly, people in the stock market, also the big fishes or the big investors are not really aware of the right time about selling stocks. If an investor does not really know when the right time for selling stocks is, then I am afraid to say that even with big investments, he won’t be able to make fortunes. The best thing what you can do here is do not hold on to your stocks if there is any possiblity of market crash in the near future. Let me give you an example; suppose you purchased a stock that was of 200 dollars but because of changing trends and a possibility of market crash, the price of the stock is declining. So, in such kind of a situation, the best move is to sell the stocks because this is what situation is demanding at the very moment.
When talking about selling stocks, there are plenty of reasons behind an investor taking the decision of selling stocks. Firstly, if you are in need of money for purchasing a car, pay off a few medical bills, and things like this, you can decide to sell your stocks in order to fulfill either your necessities or desires. What you can do here is that sell your winning stocks in order to lock profits plus, walk out from the market at the same time as well. Secondly, a big change in the company or industry can make you sell your stocks as well; if you see that something bad has happened to the company such as any accident in their production unit or etc, get rid of the stocks immediately in order to bear minimum possible loss. Lastly, decision of selling stocks is also taken on the basis of a shoot up in the prices of stocks because of speculation.
