George Soros – “It’s not whether you’re right or wrong…”

The full quote  

“It’s not whether you’re right or wrong that’s important, but how much money you make when you’re right and how much you lose when you’re wrong.”

Soros’s style of trading is very unforgiving and he is always ready to admit when he is wrong and cut his losses. Admitting one’s mistake is one of the key things to successful trading – he or she will be psychologically prepared to take action to reduce their losses without much delay.

How many of us always hold on to unrealized losses, and hope or even believe that the stock will regain its price? I guess many of us are guilty of that. Some stocks drop in price for a reason and there are even more reasons for them to drop further until you realize how bad your unrealized losses are!

As Soros take huge positions and high leverage in his trades, he has to be decisive to cut loss so as to lose as little as possible when he is wrong. On the other hand, when he is right, he make sure his profits can more than overcome his losses several folds. He understands he cannot be right all the time – the principle is to minimize your loss when you are wrong and maximize your profit when you are right.
