AAII Silicon Valley Chapter Presents: Getting Better at Selling
Investors don't realize a profit until a position is sold. Numerous forces conspire to inhibit selling for profits. Some are in the external world, and many are in our heads. This presentation will present a checklist identifying enemies to guard against and will provide specific suggestions for selling advantageously. The speaker will also point out a number of publicly available signals showing when markets are at unsustainable highs -- great times to sell. Become better equipped to deal with selling a stock or ETF, the important and often-neglected second side of every investment position, by attending this September chapter event.
