NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Sometimes you have to un-learn conventional wisdom to be a good investor," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Thursday. He dedicated his entire show to teaching investors the secrets he revealed in his book Getting Back To Even. Cramer said the first myth investors need to learn to ignore the notion of buy and hold. He said investors should instead pay attention to short-term market fluctuations so that they can take advantage of them to buy stocks they like at cheaper prices, and sell those that have been driven unrealistically high.
