What You Can Learn From The World's Top Investors & Traders

There is always something interesting to learn and take from Greatest Investors of the World. See below some of the greatest investors in the world. These are investors that have helped shaped the world of investing analysis.

I believe that anyone can win if they are committed to do so. Primarily, it's just a matter of learning how. I figured that there must be some traits that are universal to all successful investors. problems investors face are risk control and stress. For risk, most investors can't follow the basic "cut your losses short and let your profits run" mantra, yet it's crucial people have a hard time selling at a loss if necessary. And people always seem to cut profits short.
"If you think of trading as a game and that a mistake is not following the rules of the game, then it becomes much easier to follow these two rules."
What Successful Traders Believe:-

When it comes to successful traders, they believe:-

Money is not important
It is OK to lose in the markets.
Trading is a game.
Mental "rehearsal" is important for success.
They've won the game before they even start.
Characteristics of Winning Traders:- 
 
 
What it takes to be winning traders
 
Winning traders do not take trades that don't fit their systems. If the exit says sell, Winning Traders are comfortable being in cash and don't feel a sense of urgency to always be in the market.
Most winning traders have gone through a period of great pain, usually early in their careers. This has often compelled them to develop trading discipline.
Winning traders do not celebrate their wins with tremendous excitement, and they don't agonize over their losses. Emotions in trading is incredibly dangerous. at times you loose even though you followed the system perfectly. Simply celebrate when you follow your proven system- win or lose.
To increase the chances of success one should study the pattern and see how it works. One should select a trading system that is written and proven and paper traded till you get convinced that it works. If you find that you are breaking the rules of your system, it means that you don't believe it works and you should stop trading. If the system shows not to work through it out and select another system and start the process again.
Master Strategists of Winning Traders:-
Money management and risk control are key factors to success.
Risk control decides your exit point before you enter a trade.
Have a trading plan and discipline to use the strategists.
Wait for the right opportunity
Never trade against the trend. Catch part of the move
Focus on maximizing gains, not the number of wins.
 
What You Can Learn From The World's Top Investors & Traders
Warren Buffet
FIVE PRINCIPLE OF INVESTING
1.  Think independently
2.  Invest in high-return businesses run for the benefit of shareholders.
3.  Pay only for a reasonable price even for an excellent business
4.  Invest for the long term
5.  Do not diversify excessively
THE 10 RULES GUIDE FOR INVESTING:
1 A company's value is based on its expected net cash flow discounted at an interest rate that reflects risk.
2 Only invest in companies with predictable earnings.
3 Only invest in companies with predictable earnings. Only invest when there is a margin of safety between a stock's value and the market price.
4 Focus on return on equity to determine if management is doing a good job
5 Avoid companies with significant debt.
6 Only invest in a company whose management is committed to controlling cost.
7 Only invest in companies whose business you understand.
8 Only invest in companies that have honest and candid management.
9 The best- performing companies usually have a" franchise," since it makes their product ot service unique
10 Invest for Long term
Famous Quotes
1 "The first rule is not to lose. The second rule is not to forget the first rule."
2 "If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians."
3 "Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing."
4 "Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it."
Backround
Warren Buffet is one of the very few billionaires who has amassed wealth solely through investing in stocks. Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway investment company has seen outstanding returns over the years. A $10,000 investment in Berkshire Hathaway in 1965 would be worth 50 million dollars today. This has made Buffet the second richest man in the world at a net worth of over $36 billion dollars
Investment Style
Buffet's number one goal for investing is to NEVER LOSE ANY MONEY regardless of market conditions. He believes in buying stocks trading near their tangible asset value. He also avoids companies that have excess debt. Buffet then looks at the companies track record for ROE and tries to predict where the company is going to be 10yrs from now.
Peter Lynch
Famous Quotes
1.  "Everyone has the brainpower to follow the stock market. If you made it through fifth-grade math, you can do it."
2.  "Go for a business that any idiot can run - because sooner or later, any idiot probably is going to run it."
Background
 Peter Lynch is the most famous mutual fund manager. He started managing the Fidelity Magellan Fund in 1978. When he started, the fund had assets of 20 million dollars. When he retired in 1990, the Fidelity Fund had assts of 14 billion. Today the fund has assets of over 50 billion dollars
Investment Style
 Peter Lynch's strategy was to adjust to whatever investment style worked at the time. He looked for three qualities in a good company: profitability, price, and a good business mode
Check the key numbers.
1
If you are excited by a particular product or service, ensure that it accounts for a sufficient percentage of total company sales and that it makes a significant contribution to profits.
2
Favor companies with a strong cash position
3
Favor companies with a forward PE ratio well below their forecasted EPS growth rate
4
Avoid companies with high debt-to-equity ratios.
5
Avoid slow growers and cyclical stoc
Benjamin Graham
1. 
"To achieve satisfactory investment results is easier than most people realize; to achieve superior results is harder than it looks."
2. 
"The one principal that applies to nearly all these so-called "technical approaches" is that one should buy because a stock or the market has gone up and one should sell because it has declined. This is the exact opposite of sound business sense everywhere else, and it is most unlikely that it can lead to lasting success in Wall Street. In our own stock-market experience and observation, extending over 50 years, we have not known a single person who has consistently or lastingly made money by thus "following the market." We do not hesitate to declare that this approach is as fallacious as it is popular."
Background
1. 
Benjamin Graham is "The Father of Value Investing". Graham founded many of the fundamental analysis and value-investing principals that are used today by fund managers and famous investors such as Peter Lynch and Warren Buffet
Investment Style
1. 
Graham looks for what he calls a "Margin of Safety" when investing in stocks. This is defined by how much a stock is trading below its intrinsic value which is what the business would be worth if it were sold today. Graham likes large companies with strong sales since they pose less risk. He also likes companies that pay out dividends and are in good financial shape. Graham looked for companies that are trading below their historical P/E average and trading below 1.2 times book value. This investment style is hardcore value investing that has proved successful over the years.

Reasons Most Day Traders Fail
 
Failure to follow your method, gut instinct, instead of listening to others who are giving you their advice free or for a premium which might be right for them, but not right for you.
Failure to realize that this is a "capital appreciation" game ONLY. There is no other purpose, beyond growing your capital.
Failure to be smart when the market do not behave as we think. This means you keep your self cool and do not cut losses fast, and getting out of winners too soon. It sounds simple, but it takes discipline to trade correctly. This is hard whether you're losing or winning.
Failure to average or double down when a stock you hold goes lower, and you believe with certainty as per systems that it will recover.
Failure to pay attention to the live news / News Alert/ Stock Alert, believing they are all nonsense. At times these selected source of information are a great place to gauge the emotion of the market for a particular stock.
Failure to follow a system, and execute trades when your system is telling you to preserve capital by cutting a loss short.
Failure to take this game very seriously.
Greed, as evidenced by trying to pick tops or bottoms, is a frequent error.
 
Failure to judge global market, Frequently, traders judge markets on the local situation only, rather than taking the worldwide situation into account.
Failure of trader not to follow price action, and thus trade contrary to the trend.
Failure to avoid temptation and jump into a market based on a story in the morning paper; the market many times has already discounted the information.
