Individual investors without professional support of any kind struggle a lot and most of them do fail even though failing in a bulling market can actually mean making money. In fact, Even though individual investors do not manage their portfolio very well, most of them managed to make money. Frontier markets have more potential in term of performances but they require more skills due to lack of transparency and available data and this can be more time-consuming than trading in more developed markets. Individual investors investing in Vietnamese stocks can achieve good performance by avoiding the usual mistakes that this type of investors make (use of leverage, too high level of trading, trading without understanding the basics, panicking…) and above all by using external financial professionals help. This seems to be almost required in order to successfully trading in frontier stock markets like Vietnam where information is hard to get and cultural differences may make things harder as well.
