Folk, a lot of times we act without much of thought and it cost a lot to us. Investing is an art and no decision should be taken in haste. Buying a stock should only be done only by taking account of various things of the company.

Therefore, you should never buy a stock for long-term when stock prices crash more than 10-20% in a day.

Today I will share you some charts where investors tried to catch a falling knife and most of the long-term investor are still burning their hands.
