#2
It's obvious and common sense, but in reality I never seen so full so comprehensive article about that things anywhere, it's like some sort of minibook really for such common advice, I thought I will simply take a look, but it will take like hour or more to read anyway, thanks!:)

  1. Know what you want to do and what you are doing
  2. Don’t risk all your capital at once. Invest only that much that you can afford to lose.
  3. Avoid herd mentality
  4. Don’t try to time the market
  5. Diversify your portfolio (don’t over diversify)
  6. Keep emotions at bay
  7. Keep the research part on always.
  8. Invest only after analyzing the company’s stocks
  9. Choose liquid stocks and avoid penny stocks.
  10. Have realistic expectations from your investments and markets
