the truth...the truth is that 99% of the stocks are rubbish....The job of the real investor ( who is there to participate in the long term growth of quality companies) is to learn to say NO to 99% of the stocks ................................

I'm sure trading stocks can make money. But I think the reason why it is rare(almost never) to hear famous short term traders over a long period being successful as compared to longer term value investors (Howard marks, Peter lynch, walter Schloss etc etc) I think the reason is simple. George Soros is not a short term momentum trader. He is a contrarian trader if I ever saw one.

Almost all momentum trading is based on capital protection first, earnings second. By default you can't put more money into play, because of the inherent risk of not knowing deeply the asset you are trading. And to diversify the risk ( I never understand this part), they have to put money into more and more stocks they don't understand which they only analyze based on momentum charts ( things that has happened before) to guess what will happen tomorrow.

To be honest, most of the trader friends I know, they do not go into big active fund management. Majority of them trade small amounts. The biggest I know trades with 10% maximum exposure per trade aof a group fund of 10 million. He has averaged 10-15% over 8 years. The amount of stress he gets to achieve that level of success is tremendous. He does not trade bursa.

And Steven is exactly right. The biggest cause of fund failure is when they forget that they are doing speculation and trading activities and suddenly convince themselves they are doing long term investing halfway through their trading. Then they chase bad trades with more money and it becomes a ball of fire.

So far I have yet to find an official fund manager in Malaysia with big fund size (assets bigger than 500 million) successfully using short term trading methodology as a way of investing with a success rate 5-10 years+. Any sifus who firmly believe in this strategy out there making trading gains with big sums of money over long periods of time out there?

Raider identifies insas as his most undervalued stock to invest today.

How much he invest into it today?

Only 200k.


Philip’s observation is true. Majority of them trade small amounts.

I take umbrage with this conception. Based on very long experience I have realize this to be false. Short term is subject to far more uncertainty than long term.

Let me talk football terms. Which is harder to do and achieve success for the club?

Offer Lionel Messi a massive contract when he had won a balon de oro, most goals scored in a season a few times and go big with him as your most expensive signing with a long term contract?

Or offer a few undersized kids needing growth hormones but with potential in Argentina a contract to play in Liga? How many actually turn out? If you bring in a hundred of those kids with 1% of Messi salary, you probably won't even know their names, much less how they will turn out tomorrow.

In stock terms, if you hold NESTLE long enough, your risk and uncertainty factor inherently become less, because your earnings and profits have far outweighed any incoming risk. In the long term, if you held nestle long enough, even if meteor hits Malaysia and destroys entire population and all factories, you would still be up on dividends gained.

I think short term trading has far greater uncertainty and risk compared to long term. I keep trying to find someone to do the Warren buffet 10 year bet between active investing and passive investing, to no avail.

>>>
As we know, long term investment will be subject to more uncertainty factor compare to short term. This is for sure.

A simple question I often ask is: “Will this company be a bigger company 10 years from today?”

If Lionel Messi gets injured, you're royally screwed by the way

Lionel Messi track record still far better than those 17 year old Argentinian kids from God knows where.

Posted by StallionInvestment > 2019-02-19 09:23 | Report Abuse

Rajachulan, i am training newbies. So, for a start. I dont want they aim big profit. I want them aim consistent profit. Then slowly improve their trading skill and profit margin. Therefore, i alway prohibit my student who is newly join to take profit at the peak. Follow the trading plan. Then when they master it, then profit in their hand. They are taking risk on the profit that they have secure to aim bigger profit. If turn out they are wrong, at least it wont hurt their capital. If i allow my student aim big at the beginning, later they will aim even bigger profit. Get caught then seek for solution i also can't do much. As i mentioned earlier, risk management, capital management also in play. Not pure technical.

Icon8888, it is one of the famous blogger and produce good article for i3investor followers.
rajachulan
it just a two different approach. Evil when those counter sudden plunge and people are touching some counters which is fundamental poorly perform. Everyone has their own believe, else whey there is exist of technical at the first place.

Posted by StallionInvestment > 2019-02-19 09:39 | Report Abuse

true, short term trader mostly remain secret and low profile as they plan to buy and sell. Therefore, they can't reveal position to the public just like those who adopt fundamental approach. It is fine to share their position as they adopt long term approach.

discipline in protecting capital and follow strictly the cut loss is most crucial in TA........hahahaha.....

Raider like to highlight this 3iii misconception mah.....!!

1.When raider buy with margin of safety insas hathaway...raider is investing and not trading mah...!! B Graham define margin of safety investment is truly investing mah...!! But don get me wrong loh...it is still a good practise to buy with margin of safety whether u r investing, speculation and trading & loh...!!

Why raider don say gambling with margin of safety leh ??
Bcos gambling has no margin of safety, u r going agst probability with expected negative value mah....!!

2. Raider invested in insas 400k units at about Rm 250k & not Rm 200k mah loh.....!!

Why raider don sailang like Philip leh ??

a} Raider not so rich like Philip mah...!!
b) Raider is not a gambler like Philip, raider is conservative as Calvintan says any black swan event make happen, hence raider need to manage risk mah...!!

3. Remember margin of safety investment usually can beat buy hold investment over a period 1 to 3 yrs...take for example raider's insas already up 30% within a period of 1 mth ....if u compare to Philip QL less than 5% loh....!!

After a certain amount, money becomes the scoreboard to keep track. To be honest depending on your lifestyle, 200k is more than enough. I survive in far below that.

Rick or not is simple matter of not having to cut loss or take profit too early for 10 years. I started with 200k, end up with reinvesting and retain earnings into QL for 10 years in one stock. Is that gambling? If you know what you are doing and you know what your stock is doing you are not gambling. You are investing.

I bought 1.4m shares in PCHEM, I made 1.2 million in a month in paper profit. Is that gambling? Not if you can see what the future will be. All I can say is the simple the business, the clearer the future. You buy or sell based on what the future business will bring. Not the sudden increase in share price.

I would instead say buying 0.25 of sapura the very definition of gambling. You don't see any earnings future to give it profit. The business it has is inherently loss making for the next few years because of the contracts it has. You KNOW that sapura will continue to lose money, but you still buy because you HOPE someone will pay more for it than you did.

That is the essential definition of gambling. Hope that things will work out, instead of rational judging of the most likely future possibility coming out.

My own experience in investing (and gambling) for 20+ years is realizing that when you value a stock, the best way is still to assume the share price not there.

When you stop seeing share price first, all you see is businesses. You start comparing which business works the best, who has the best profit margins, who has the competitive advantage, who has been growing for the longest period, and more importantly why are they growing. After you analyze the business itself on the strength of its business model, then when you decide this is the stock than I am going to buy,

Then you look at the price. If the price fits, then the stock will work out.

Then when the quarterly report comes out, forget about the share price and understand the business model itself again. Is it on track? Has it changed? Did something new happen? Then when you decide to buy mor(e or sell you position, then you look at the price.

That's how it finally clicked for me.

That's why I don't get ta or momentum investing at all. How does the study of price action in the past prepare you for future results? A stock can keep going down for a long time, longer than your margin call can bear before suddenly shooting up without warning. Or a stock can keep going up for a long time then suddenly drop like a rock.

And you don't even know why(except after it happened). Isn't that kind of investing stressful? Imagine trying to use ever larger sums of money to chase those gains.

Crazy.

If I had to invest 12 million that way, I think I would lose everything in 3 years.
