5 Of My Favorite Investing Lessons From Being On StockTwits

I've seen millions of people share insights, charts, and just about everything else. Here are 5 things I recently learned that will help me become a better investor.

1. Someone is always on the other side of your trade.

A favorite moment comes from the Apple stream. Someone writes "$AAPL die $90 coming" and seconds later another writes "$AAPL $105 coming." Think about WHY someone else would want your next trade.

2. You have to have a game plan, or a system, or a strategy.

I follow a lot of good traders and investors. 500 at least. One thing they all have in common: they know how and when to sell. That could be their risk tolerance. Or their system. Just know when.

3. Technical analysis is real. And it drives markets A LOT.

The stock market is driven by humans and computers that are programmed by humans. We're a pattern recognizing species. Patterns in the market repeat, illustrate psychology and show supply/demand.

4. Always do your own research.

"If you're prepared to invest in a company, then you ought to be able to explain why in simple language that a fifth grader could understand" - Peter Lynch Never buy without your analysis.

5. Don't chase. Ever. Turn your computer off if you have to.

When a stock is spiking, and you've always wanted it, that's when it's hardest to avoid the mania and wait. Chasing a stock means you bought it near its highs or because of "hype." Avoid this.
