Selling Skills and Contrarian Thinking

Only if the market went up constantly and forever and only if companies and
fund managers never faltered would the common advice to "buy and hold"
actually work.  So it is important to learn to sell as skillfully as you
buy.  Being able to sell "up" locks in above-average returns, but it
requires an independent or "contrarian" mind-set.
