The stock market goes up and down.  You can bet on it.  Kind of.  When you have made a trading plan that takes into account your risk tolerance, stick with it.

It can become difficult when the market is not going in the direction that benefits you but a well constructed trading plan should be carried out.  Trust your instincts from when you were in the planning stage, not the emotional state the market can put you in.
