    What are the factors that will determine in setting my target. What will be its basis? Is there a rule of thumb that we will follow that can guide us telling/signalling its time to sell (profit or loss)?

    • says

      You can use Fundamental Analysis, Technical Analysis or your happiness as the basis to set your target. Kanya-kanya yan as no method works for all people and all stocks :)

    I consider 20% gain before i sell. I sell only the number or stocks that equates to my profit so my capital stays. All the profits in my portfolio goes to only one company. In short,i am buying this company out of my 20% gain from other stock.

    Its a great graphical flow diagram. It explains the selling strategy well in a small graphic. This is why it says that picture worth 1000 words
