hello ... And what an interesting name you have! :-))
Glad you found the article helpful and that you have started to post. Its a bit daunting at first but good when you get to "know" peeps. And there are a lot of very nice and genuine people on the TCG board and only a couple to watch out for! IMHO of course.
I wish I was as disciplined as the article refers. It really is good advice. I could have been a lot more successful even in the past couple of months had I heeded some of the advice. I would proffer up one other little word of minor wisdom that I have learned.... Buying shares is like eating chocolate ... Best consumed in small amounts until you know the impact it has had . My best stock purchases have worked out best when I have put only a small amount in at a time to any one particular stock and if need be topped up if it has gone Pete Tong. Similarly with selling. Unless something obvious, tranches is the way to go .... True,you might not "max out" on the gain if it goes up, but it's a choice you can take and perhaps be happier with. Always leave yourself with some cash to "fix" things or to "take advantage" and IMHO, even the worst decisions can come good.
I hope you have lots of fun investing and in posting ... And make enough profit to make you happy. I'm sure you will with TCG!!! And I'm sure there are lots of others on here that would be happy to share their experience and tips too.
Would just like to say I found the article you posted earlier very interesting and as being relatively new to shares myself will certainly be reading it again on a regular basis to remind myself not to pick up any more bad habits ! Thanks for posting an excellent read as you can see I am new to posting but have for the last 2 yrs followed with much interest the views on this board having held this share myself for a few years through the ups & downs but always a believer it would shine once more.
Slightly dubious article on BBC news website on haggling over holiday price, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25982236, however interesting point at the beginning on holiday summer bookings being up 20% on this time last year, doesn't show the source but with the UK slowly becoming more like Atlantis, wouldn't surprise me and that can only be good news for tcg hopefully :-)
I first found and read this article a year ago, after I had been "investing" for about 15 months. I wish I had read it before I started. I read it every now and again to remind myself ... And will again this morning.
It's a wee bit dated now and relates a lot to trading, but the underlying principle is there for you to take out should you wish.
Be patient where you can. I have learned that many boats come into the harbour for one to sail away on!
"It's incredible to think where we've come in the last year – it's a really good story," Stoehr comments, stating that the company hopes to move into the FTSE 100 in 2014. The GC – who aside from his duties is studying for his English law qualification – may have only been part of the resuscitation of Thomas Cook, but he is reflective of a much-needed optimism at a company that has stared down imminent collapse and rebounded
