The cornerstone for a successful portfolio lays in appropriate strategies that detail your plan with clear blueprints of the goals to be achieved. Though all the traders come to investing world with a view to earn profits, however, the paths to reach the goals are different. Choosing the right path and making timely decisions during that path is what the game is all about. It is important to design such a plan that gives detailed asset allocation that serves to effective diversification focusing on:

  1. Reward objectives
  2. Reduction of portfolio risk


Any investment strategy must be well planned and focussed. Whatever strategy you form to trade in stocks, but always make sure that they are worth making and contribute to the rewarded objective. Along with that a strategy that minimizes risks is the best to achieve the goal.


The investment strategies must eliminate the following pitfalls caused by:

  2. Illogical strategy
  3. Over-weighted categories
  4. Duplication
  5. Unsuitable funds
  6. Unbalanced portfolio

There are certain times when it seems to overcome the losses, however, take advices from the stock broker and evaluate it before implementation.
