There's lots of ways to do good in the stock market. I think the important things is to have a solid, robust, preferably well-tested process that you can stick to. And Don't Panic. ;-)

And, of course, to not give your money to somebody who is so afraid of taking any loss that they'll give up the long-term profits. ;-)
