I generally go on my share brokers website and do research on companies every 2-3 days whilst I have time in the evenings.
However, by doing this, everytime I open the home page, there is my watch list of the shares I've either bought already or looking at buying. Therefore, I'm getting updates on how well my share portfolio is doing every 2-3 days also.
Since I've been doing this, I'm becoming more obsessed with the price of my portfolio and partaking in the roller coaster of the ups and downs.
How can I still research companies which I enjoy doing without seeing the wild swing (and emotions that go with it) of my portfolio several times per week?
I value invest for the longer term so this constant day trade mentality is not good!
Howq often do you check how your shares are doing?
