Beating the markets

There is a tendency among the investors to be able to beat the market averages and their own peers. in this process, many take unnecessary risks or make mistakes. these risks may offer rewards or generate losses. The mistakes take away some part of the earnings that one would have otherwise got from the investment.

The strategy should be to take home as much out of the investment income as possible. It is not about beating the market, it is about participating in the market.

A simple analogy would be to see the average mileage given by a vehicle. If your car runs 15 kmpl, what should be your objective? Should it be to try and get 16 or 17 kmpl? or to get as close to 15 kmpl as possible?

Think of investments in the same manner.
