Adding capital constantly to your account promotes a correct positive mindset and outlook towards looking at your account and working towards your goal.
I feel it's so important to put aside at least $25 a week to ensure your account does not just stagnate without growth. Reinvesting dividends is great too, but adding capital truly accelerates the process and sets your outlook where it should be--STRONG CONSISTENT EXPONENTIAL GROWTH.
Does your account feel stagnant? Yes accept your mistake, accept your x% loss and move on..the market won't wait for you to make that back, and thinking that way can be detrimental to your success.
