What you need to know:

  • An investor in the stock market must invest for the long-term if they are to realise full potential gains.
  • According to the Capital Markets Authority, the first step one should take when buying shares is to establish which companies are experiencing a robust performance.
  • There is no formula that guides an investor’s entry or exit from the bourse. This will depend on an individual investor’s situation, especially with regard to risks and returns.
