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 😛
In primary school, I took part in a US-based fantasy stock market competition. My stock selection process was based on companies that I like and companies that I knew of. So, companies like Disney, Apple, Microsoft, and Wal Mart were in my portfolio. I didn’t do that well in the competition but I did win a T-shirt, which was a pretty cool thing! 😀
I started getting serious about the financial market probably when I first entered Australia. I started reading a lot and going to numerous amounts of free seminars. I paper traded for about 6 months and decided to take the plunge and opened up a brokerage account. That was probably about 4 years ago.
Today, I’m a derivatives trader trading Contract-for-Differences (CFDs) on my private account.
