I've been reading a book called "25 Stupid Mistakes you don't want to make in the Stock Market". It's an American book but has some good tips in it (in my opinion anyway).
So I thought I'd ask the question ... What are the mistakes you see people make when they are dealing with the stock market? Or what are the mistakes you have made that others can learn from?
I've made heaps of mistakes, but my number one mistake I learnt from was getting caught up in the hype when listening to people talk about wonderful shares they have ... I've found that by the time I buy them everyone else is selling!!! Now I take it slower and still listen to other people, but I learnt to check things out for myself rathen than jump fast so that I don't miss the "opportunity".
