Course Description

Every year the markets provide us with lessons on the prudent investment strategy. Many times markets offer investors remedial courses, covering lessons they taught in previous years. That’s why one of my favorite sayings is that there’s nothing new in investing, only investment history you don’t yet know.

This crazy year has changed everything, but it’s also highlighted some classic investing lessons in new ways. Given that the markets had to deal with the Covid crisis, it should not be a surprise that 2020 provided more than the usual share of lessons—we will cover 16. As you may note, many of them are repeats from prior years. Unfortunately, too many investors fail to learn them—they keep making the same errors. . The market will provide opportunities to make investment mistakes. You can avoid making errors by knowing your financial history and having a well-thought-out plan.
