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˜€

A Mercedes-Benz as a Graduation Present

When I first started trading and going into small-time ventures here in Australia, I had set an objective. I told myself, when it’s time to return to Malaysia, I was going to bring back a Mercedes SLK 200 Kompressor with me. Hehehe πŸ˜›

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˜›

In preparation of my return to Malaysia, I’ve been looking at ways on how I could trade CFDs and international stocks/securities from Malaysia.

Do you guys have any idea?

I had a look at IG Markets Singapore and City Index Asia but I have yet to contact them on the procedures and requirements involved.

My goodness, this industry involves loads of reading!

One thing for sure is that being a participant in the financial market yourself involves tonnes of reading!

I’m not working for any institutions. I’m only a private investor & trader and even then, I have to do a lot of research and studies to keep myself up to date.

A few hundred pages a week probably… I seriously hope that I don’t get burned out…

Just imagine what people like Donald Trump and Prince Al-Waleed Talal have to go through to keep themselves current. Talking about newspapers alone, I’ve heard that they have to go through a number of them each day.

What’s deterring me from staying in Australia

Previously, I wrote about the reasons that could potentially lead me to stay in Australia.

Now, I’ll list out some reasons that might bring me home to Malaysia.

1. I predict that it’ll be hard for me to get a job

The economy is pretty bad here. Many companies are laying off their workers. On top of that, I am pretty academically challenged (i.e. my academic results are not that great). So, I predict that it’ll be hard for me to get a job here. Also, to get a permanent good-paying job in Australia, you need the Permanent Residency status. To apply for PR, you have to spend a few thousand dollars. If I won’t be able to secure myself a job, spending a few thousand dollars would be a waste of resources, no?
