Understanding Stock Selection – What Pullbacks Teach Us – Become A Better Investor

The continuing rally today would certainly seem to mark the end of the recent pullback. Despite analysts and brokerages warnings investors of an impending coming summer correction, stocks have remained resilient which considering all the “bad” news out of Europe and China combined with the likelihood of a rise in interest rates this fall, is very impressive as you would think stocks would be lower.

The problem with investing, especially for the average investor is not knowing when to commit capital in a pullback or a dip. While dip buying has worked for several years including this year, it only works when we buy the dip at the right time. Unlike the larger investor who has hundreds of millions or billions at their disposal, we are limited by our capital. If I buy the dip at the wrong time, I do not have the capital to continually repair and rescue trades.

Instead by understanding what pullbacks can teach us, we as small investors can still benefit enormously and level the playing field between us and the large investor.
