I have autism, so I have things going round and round in my head and this phrase really winds me up.

It starts of by presupposing you are going to lose. Sure, if you trade Forex, use leverage or basically gamble with options.

The true phrase should be “Never invest more than you can afford to ignore”. Here’s why, if you buy stocks, for instance, you buy one hundred shares in a company, but the shares go down so you are not in profit. If you bought Bitcoin or another crypto too high and it falls what to do?

If you did not trade with leverage but simply bought the stock or crypto you still own it. So just hold it and keep investing and building your portfolio.
