MARKETS SPECTATOR: Letting 'em run

As the local market enters a new cycle, investors who've seen weak stocks return to purchase price face a challenge.

Most investors know that one of the golden rules of being successful in the market is cutting your losers short and letting your winners run, but it is much easier said than done.

Most people intend to do this but when it comes to the crunch they can't force themselves to sell for a small loss and decide to hang on in the hope the stock will turn around and head higher.
