The following quote is taken from Larry Swedroe’s article titled Mad Money on IndexUniverse.com.
If you’re having fun investing, then there’s a good chance that you’re not properly diversified, you’re trading too much, and you’re taking too much risk.
—Gregory Baer and Gary Gensler, The Great Mutual Fund Trap
Well, I am not having fun investing. In fact, it has become a chore now as I have not completed my planned trades. Moreover, for the two trades done: one has extra charge not mentioned on the broker web site. I am dealing with the broker to resolve this. The other one is my foolish mistake. I queued in the odd-lot market when there was no seller, and some prankster sold me 5 shares that cost less than the brokerage fee.
On the other hand, I am glad that I am not having fun investing, hehe…
