Why one should not chase short term performance?

There is a tendency among certain investors to keep checking the value of their investments. Has the stock price moved up or down? What was the closing value of the market index today? What was the NAV of the fund? Many feel that they need to be on top of the news so that they can manage their investments better. They argue: “The investing world is too dynamic. There are so many changes. In such a fast changing world, if you are not on your toes, you may lose out.”
