“So, what now?”

21 October, 2022

In today’s Exponential Investor:

  • Bought shares? Here’s what comes next
  • How to create a trading plan
  • Leaning about risk the hard way

“So, what now?” a friend asked me over lunch during the week.

She’d bought some shares. She’s picked up some crypto along the way. But with the market continuing to head south, she didn’t know what to do next. “Do I buy more? Do I sell? I only bought them because other people told me what to buy, and I have no clue what to do next.”

My friend’s troubles are surprisingly common.

Many people start investing simply because other people tell them what to buy. They act on this information… but, then, if the market moves against them, they often freeze, not knowing what to next.

Today’s Exponential Investor sets out to tackle this very subject.

With over 20 years’ industry experience between us, Sam Volkering and I share our top four tips on where to start, what to do after you’ve bought shares, and how to create an investment plan and understand your risk profile along the way.
