Hi all, I just joined this forum moments ago hoping for some tips or insights on how I am currently doing in my stock investment, and hopefully this is the right place. I have been using Robinhood for a little over one year now. As much I'd like to play stocks as a long term investor, at least that was what I planned on doing when I started back in Jan 2020, I realize that I have been doing a lot more sells lately and not holding on as a normal long term investor would do, I feel quite nervous and uncertain about what I am doing now. Over the course of the one year I have managed to maintain my profit margin to 30-40%. I am not sure if that is a good number or not, but I tried my best to hold onto my stocks without selling any of them until recent events with the harsh drop every single day for weeks! Was it wrong wanting to keep the rest of the $700 profit when I gave the company trust and waited from the $1500 mark? Sure, my friends are saying the company will grow more than $1500 profit in 3 months or 1 year, but does it not make sense to get the profit now so I can put more into the company later? I graduated from university a few years back and although not a high income job I do have a stable income of about $2200 a month for these past few years, everyone is trying to make the best of their life especially during this pandemic crisis when financial situation just isn't great at all, this was the main reason why I started my investment in stocks. But I am wondering now, if I am doing the right thing with the little savings I have, am I investing correctly or if I am just making a fool of myself by not sticking to the rule of being a long-term investor? My top stocks were Fuel Cell, Tesla, Nio, and Plug Power, all of which are still dropping so much after weeks or even months now, I really felt the urge to pull out, after watching my green number (dollar profit) lessening to below 50% of the original... This is just painful.
