All the more timely then to read the attached article from today’s Globe & Mail on how to avoid being your own worst enemy when investing. Basic stuff, but spot-on in terms of accuracy. Particularly the point about making decisions that could affect your long-term financial well being, based on short term factors. Emotions are great when it comes to relationships, but not when investing. Making consistent, rational, and pragmatic decisions that remain true to the end objective is always in your best interest.
