  7. "After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: It never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It always was my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!" Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

  9. My own experience is the same. Most of the money is made by sitting tight when you are correct. As it says in Reminiscences "The big money was not in the individual fluctuations but in the main movements—that is, not in reading the tape but in sizing up the entire market and its trend."

    Whether your holding time is 5 minutes or years, you should sit tight during that time as long as you are correct. As the Old Turkey (again, in Reminiscences) says, "I'd lose my position. And when you are as old as I am and you've been through as many booms and panics as I have, you'll know that to lose your position is something nobody can afford; not even John D. Rockefeller."

    And if you believe that times have changed: "The game does not change and neither does human nature." (Reminiscences)

    Mishwar, have you read Reminiscences of a Stock Operator? If not, do so!
