Rest & Recuperate from Trading

I’ve been trading for quite some time now. Paper trading as well as REAL trading since I was probably 19? “Play-play” trading for even way before that.

I’ve decided recently to take an R&R for a little while. Situations have changed and will change even further in the next few months. Hence, I need to re-evaluate my position and make a few changes to my trading plan and objectives.

One of my early trades… and the most memorable one!

I’ve done many trades since I first began participating in the financial market a number of years ago. But I have to say that this particular trade was the most memorable one.

What company did I trade? It was Zinifex Ltd., a mining company that has since been taken over by another company.

Nadlique and Stock Trading

One of my biggest passions is the financial market. The financial market gives me joy and satisfaction.

Similar to photography and flying, I was interested in shares since I was a kid. I didn’t understand a thing about shares of course but I was intrigued nevertheless. I did try to ask my father about it but I didn’t really grasp the full understanding of what shares were all about.

Often, I kept on insisting my dad to buy some shares for me but those requests were always responded by “Nak beli ada duit ke?”. Hehe 😛

My Public Mutual Investment Updates (20.08.2009)

I had a look at my Public Mutual online just now and it seems like things are somewhat recovering.

I’m about 10% away from point of breakeven.

I find it rather hard to believe that it recovered rather quickly. If things can rise this quickly, I’m sure that things can go down again just as fast.

How to accumulate capital for business or investments

Everybody knows that to start a business or to start investing, you need capital (in Bahasa Melayu, modal). This issue of finding capital to start with is also one of the reasons why many people do not invest nor save nor start a business.

Do these excuses apply to you:

1. “I have no savings at all to buy unit trusts”
2. “What’s left over from my salary at the end of the month is so meagre that I shouldn’t be bothering about investing.”
3. “Invest? Business? Are you kidding me? I barely have enough money to keep myself going.”

To start, let’s make it clear. There will never be enough money to invest or even form a business. However, we, humans, the breadwinner, have the power. We are the decision-makers. The issue of “not having enough money” is only in our minds.

The solution is simple. Make sure there’s enough money to plow into investments/businesses. How? Use the thing that sits between the tight few inches between our ears, my dad says. In other words, use our brain. Be creative.

If you are working and rely on your salary, try working out your budget. Try cutting down things that are unnecessary. Make sure your inflows are much more than your outflows. Don’t even be tempted to load up your credit cards. Bad debts are bad. Money will be enough if you make it enough. Cut down on those luxuries. Hey, who said journey of wealth creation is easy?

If it’s still not enough, then it’s time to get creative!

A Discussion on Amanah Saham Bumiputra’s (ASB) Halal status. The view of Securities Commission (SC). Pandangan Suruhanjaya Sekuriti.

A fatwa was issued by the Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan Malaysia about the Halal Status of Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB). It was deemed to be as HARUS.

However, I came across some new information. It seems like it is HARAM according to Securities Commission (SC) or otherwise known as Suruhanjaya Sekuriti.

Have a look at this.

So, readers, do have a say in the comments section below.
