I just finished one race Feb 3rd, and I will have another one March 9th, one more April 7th. And thefull marathon Dec 8th.
When I prepared those races, I found that the short termgoal might affect the long term goal. For the past week,since it's a taper week, we should not run too much becauseof the falf-marathon race tomorrow. But in order to prepare the marathon, I should steadily build up milage.Maybe I should run fewer races, and focus on the marathon in Dec.
It seems like very similar to the investment. For the shortterm traders, you might be interested in seeling the stockmarket going up. But for the long term investors, you want tosee the stock market going down more so that you can accumulate the stocks at relatively cheap price. And thekey is patience.
And I think I traded too much this year. I purchasedAA, WFC, BAC(re-accumulate) for 3 trades. Only time will tell whether they are good decisions.
