One thing I have learnt about investing is never look back and regret your decisions. You can’t change the past so concentrate on the here and now and of course try to predict the future. I have sold a few shares a little too soon but who knows what will happen to them tomorrow? It is better to sell too soon and make a profit than sell too late and make a loss.
There have been many events since 2008 that have spooked the financial markets but Brexit and Donald Trump winning the US presidential election must be the most nerve-jangling for investors. Clinton had plans that were seen as negative for the pharmaceutical industry but Trump also seems to be a threat to Obamacare that could also have a negative effect, as well.
