Today will probably see some selling off of stocks for the profits gained in 2012 so far.
Don't worry that is not a bad thing. In fact I would recommend everyone to take and lock in profits at some time. It is really the only way to make money on stocks.
Don't fret about seeing the stock rise even after you sell. You have just allowed someone else to make a little profit.
But I admit it does feel good if you sell at the top, and watch the price fall.
Then of course you can often make plans to buy in a stock later.
This afternoon may see some good opportunities for buying in some stocks that have been sold off this week.
Keep an eye out for that and look to buy if you feel there are some bargains to be had.
