Hi guys, newbie here! I'm trying to understand how investing in stock market works since I want to put some of my earnings in it.
One question boggles my mind is how do you lose money on stocks?

i.e. if i buy a stock let say IMI @5php today. then after some time, it plunges down to 1php.  I will, of course, have to wait until it reach a profitable amount before selling it.  What i don't understand in some articles that i read is that "nalulugi daw sila" if they actively trade...

Are there cases na it would take 10years or more before a certain stock can bounce back to the price that you originally bought?

Or are there other factors that makes the investor to sell their shares in a "lugi" price?


Pasensya na po sa tanong... It's entirely new for me... I have no background in investment or any business. Simple salary man lang ako.  :help:    :thankyou:

2 things I could think of

1) stop-loss. the time when you need to pull-out to prevent further loss
2) emergency without emergency funds. time when you badly need funds and there's no more option but to pull-out from stock portfolio

Some people sell because they think it will go down some more.
Some people sell because they don't think it will go up anymore.
Some people sell so they can have funds to buy other stocks that they think will go up.
Some people sell so they can have funds to buy other stocks that they think will go up faster than the original that they have.
Some people sell at a lost because they need money.

How do you lose money on stocks?


By asking this question: What is a good stock to buy? . . .and then going out and buying it outright.

You can loose money in stocks if you are a newbie pretending to be an expert, taking everything by chances, and wish-me-luck mentality. You need to study hard to become successful.
