How often should I check my portfolio?

How often should you check your investments? Assuming that you’re investing for the long term, there’s no need to check your stocks more than once a month to once a quarter. Checking stocks too often can lead to knee-jerk reactions.

That said, what’s important is not how often you check your stocks, but rather, how you react to fluctuations in price.  if you’re confident in your ability to stay calm, there is nothing wrong with checking them more regularly!
Make sure to find a balance that works for you, and remember – investing is for the long term. A drop one month doesn’t mean the stock won’t grow significantly over time.
