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.

What would you do if you receive $1 million dollar tomorrow?

I read an article about what you should do when you win the lottery. It was written by a well-known financial planner based here in Brisbane.

Now, setting aside the lottery part, just imagine ourselves in that position. What would you do if you were to receive $1 million dollar tomorrow?

If it was me, perhaps I would:

– Leave the money in FD-like accounts until I graduate.
– After graduation, I’d take out some to pay for my CPL/IR and Flight Instructor Rating Course.
– At the same time, acquire some investment properties and also set up a share portfolio.

It sure is nice to daydream huh? πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜›

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.
