While most speculators hate bear markets, experienced investors love them to see what deal they can grab before the markets plunge back up. Once you’ve taken some time to study, it’s time to select a company to buy from. But before you start, you must have a plan of action. I’ve lost money by not sticking to my plan, but I’ve also saved hundreds of dollars but cutting my losses. Buying low and selling high is crucial in the stock market arena.

If you research well, sometimes your $20 to $40 dollar stocks may be the right buy- depending on how many shares you purchase. Though there are penny stocks (stocks typically under the price of $5 dollars), these low-budget stocks have high volatility and they are not recommended for the beginner investor. Investing in penny stocks require a lot of education and finding the precise time to invest. And if you don’t k ow what your doing, DON’T INVEST!

If you study Warren Buffetn you will know that when you buy you should intend to hold the security forever. But if you do sell, sell when the stock is at its highest (close or above 52-week range). There are plenty of ways to evaluate a stock, but why be in a rush to sell the stock at a median price when you can wait until it reaches a higher price? This takes patience, but patience certainly pays off in the end.

All-in-all, when you set boundaries for your investment strategy, you will know what to in in a bull or bear market. Don’t panic, think….
