If markets are falling, get excited.
This is how you make money.
Nothing better than this.

Most newbies are undercapitalised. The slightest downturn, they panic, and sell off at loss. Then when market rebound, they regret selling cheap.

Newbies, please build up your emergency fund first (sufficient to cover minimum 6 months expenses). Then build up your investment fund (at least 100k).

I don't appreciate these kind of article.
These kind of article is beneficial for those whom are still in learning stage to operating the stock.

For most of the investor here doesn't need these kind of article.

Please write about
(1) portfolio management
(2) control Sharpe ratio
(3) position sizing
(4) reducing the average price of your security holding while holding certain security
(5) hedging (note hedging, not punt) against market
(6) and those advanced method.

CStrader is right.

there is no free lunch.

the only free lunch is portfolio theory and diversification.

Funny as it may sound, many lose money punting armchair stock writeups!

Good writing skills coupled with some imagination, its not difficult for most ppl to churn out decent articles about their fantasy stocks. :p

What I'd love to read is article written by real industry insiders . They are the ppl in the know. But without any personal agenda, would these ppl willing to share so freely ?

Food for thought. ;)

Happy CNY everyone!
