“The most important rule is to play great defense, not great offense. Every day I assume every position I have is wrong. I know where my stop risk points are going to be. I do that so I can define my maximum drawdown. Hopefully, I spend the rest of the day enjoying positions that are going in my direction. If they are going against me, then I have a game plan for getting out.”

- Paul Tudor Jones -

“The greatest mistake of the individual investor is to think that a market that did well is a good market rather than a more expensive market.”

“The best way to measure your investing success is not by whether you’re beating the market but by whether you’ve put in place a financial plan and a behavioral discipline that is likely to get you where you want to go.  In the end, what matters isn’t crossing the finish line before anybody else but just making sure that you do cross it.”

― Benjamin Graham, The Intelligent Investor

“The longer the bull market lasts the more severely investors will be affected with amnesia; after five years or so, many people no longer believe that bear markets are possible.”
