This forecast is ended by the quote below:

“Many long-term traders and investors have trouble selling a losing position. It’s hard to admit that you have made a mistake. There is a natural, human tendency to deny you’ve made a mistake, and thus, it is easier to leave losses on paper. When a loss is left on paper, unless it is part of your trading plan, you can tell yourself that circumstances will turn around. You can hope against hope that you’ll end up profitable in the end. What usually happens, though, is that you hold the position and it loses even more money, and then the need to deny the loss and hold it is even stronger. Behavioral economists call this ailment the ‘sunk cost effect.’ When you sink enough money in a trade or an investment, you want to believe that it was worth it. Sunk costs effects happen in everyday life as well as in business.” – Joe Ross (Source:
