To be great ... how?

Morning ... I m too busy to blog, actually .. zzz... dislike the word BUSY ... it is priority, actually. Is my BlogSpot a priority to me? Not really anymore ... I used to make a point to write a post everyday, without fail ... since 8th Aug 2008 ... for 5 years!! Until ... I m in KL ... getting busier with classes ... then, started trading-group (called tratles ... and site is ) and started my tuition-center biz ... I m as busy with the daily operations. So ... are those good excuses not to blog here? zzzz ... may be la ... wat to do, me time-management no good.

It is 11.50am ... lunch time soon, then classes and classes.

Last night I attended a market talk. BUY export-oriented stock, he said.


It is going to August soon ... I am going to start another new group which I called "8 to be great" ... it is a book-sharing group, where everyday I will try to post few quotes from the book which I m going to read. After that ... if successful, I will start another book-sharing group for STOCK TRADING next year.


If you are interested to join in(free la, of coz), to be motivated and together to be great ... you can add me in the facebook and I shall add u in the group. But ... I m going to delete those dormant, quiet, inactive, selfish, etc etc kind of people. Please do not join if you are those normal negative human. We have plenty of such people around. I need energy forming from the group.

Add me here :


There you are ... we are going to discuss topic-per-topic thru online e-meeting. I will READ the contents of the book and we all in the group have to make a commitment to attend, discuss and share!!

I have currently 17 members ... it is free, so I hv the rights to delete those irrelevant ones. Generally, only 20% succeed in anything ... so, I expect only about 4 of them left till the end of the year, to finish the book with me!! Then, I will call them out for a dinner to celebrate our months together and see if there is any POSITIVEness created from the group!! Those deleted ones ... well, they are just the normal 80%.


Passion to succeed in whatever we are doing ... if not, find that PASSION inside us. We have to last the pace ... might as well have to passion for it.

Need to plan the structure of the group, the rules and how to make all in the group to participate.

Let's start it ... maintain the PASSION ... go through the months of reading the book and be GREAT.

Saturday's blah blah

Saturday noon ... just finished a tuition class. This morning I was ''free'' as the class cancelled. So, I spend some time with my two active kids ... went to gym (to work on my six-pack ... now is one-pack, growing in diameter) and playground.

My Saturday will be packed again ... with more tuition classes in line. So, I do not know when will be my next cohort-18(trading workshop). Market sentiment is not good ... so, many might be losing money too ... so, it is difficult to promote trading-workshop. So ... I prefer to focus in my tuition-classes.

There are many going-ons ... and updates needed but I am simply too lazy/busy to blog.

chess : I m more excited than my boy ... sending him for classes/coaching. Haha.

Liverpool : From the way they played for pre-seasons ... they could not challenge the top 3 ... again. Too bad that we Liverpool's fans have to endure another year. LS and RS left ... Stevie left too ........ Balo ... err ... is he still playing for Liverpool?

The Edge : Being suspended ... no comment. zzzz

WMT : Joined second meeting last night for dinner. We are forming a group (under guidance of Peter Yee) ... to alert each other of using our whole-mind thinking process. According to Peter, it will help me in my trading too ... reduce using my logical mind and let the sub-conscious mind work!! I will try ... : I have tried to write stock-analysis there ... but ... time again, I forgotten.

MYR : Hitting new low again ... are we really seeing RM4 (vs USD) and RM3 (vs SGD)? Sigh ... USD-index going to hit 100 again ... a breakout is possible. Should we change our cash into SGD instead? Open a bank account with Singapore's bank?

Crude Oil : Went below USD50 again ... so, we should see cheaper petrol-price next month, right?

SOY : Dived further to 30.55 yesterday ... and we shall see CPO to retrace further. Will we be seeing CPO to go below 2000 level?

Gold : At low ... USD1100 level now, and a report pointing gold-price to dive to USD800. Will you buy gold (no dividend yield ... it not for hedging, not for investing leh).

Are we in commodities crisis level soon?

Nasdaq's PER is 30? I thought ........ it was 22 level?

HKSE : Yes ... I m moving into more of HKSE as it is cheapest valuation there. Many large companies are trading with single PER. We all should too ... in fact, I will want to have a public talk next week or so ... and guide some who may be interested to invest in HKSE. There is a limited upside in KLCI ... more space for HSI.

I need to rest ... have a nice weekend. Thanks for dropping by to read my blah-blah. Hehe.

Re-charge into August






I will want to write more about these .. but due to strict time schedule ... I will post these for a sharing first. Will elaborate further ... in time allows.

After RAYA post

It has been awhile since my last post ... it was RAYA holiday, so ... kinda busy.

I have been checking on my progress ... or lag of it, actually. So ... taken time off.

Raya : Selamat be-lated RAYA to readers.

Charity : Two of my tratles helped me(thanks!) in my yearly raya-charity this year. We went a week before RAYA to visit the Rawang home, which I adopted. It is 4th year I am there now. We donated RM2k of items. I still have these in my long term plan ... wait till I m free? In the mean-time, do it small and whenever we feel like it.

ToastMaster : Attended my last meeting last night ... this is first ''casualty" .. I have let it go as I have e-learning started this month. It is tiring to rush from tuition classes, market-closing ... to attend the TM meeting and then have to leave half-way, rush home for the e-meeting? So ... I will drop the TM till my e-learning ends in NOV.

e-learning : Had my session #3 last night ... talking about 3M in trading : Mindset, Management and Methods. Those still wish to join my e-meeting (Tuesday), do contact me.

HKSE : Welcome to Hong-Kong ... gate to China. As I was saying ... I am moving some funds to HKSE ... buy-to-hold. zzzz

Chess : Reviving back the interest ... started to play with my boy. Let him learn ... and compete in U12.

Liverpool : Not so impressive in OZ ... now they are in KL.

back to trading ... nothing much in post-Raya. Still quiet ... zzzz

KLCI is quiet ... except for furniture and some pennies.

Homeriz : Took Homeriz 1.06-1.07 yesterday after quiet from trading for a while. It shown momentum in morning ... breakout 1.08 successfully. Well ... Hevea and Evergreen in crazy-buying mode. So ... Homeriz followed. Bought more at 1.13 this morning ... wanting to sell 1.21, but hit 1.20 ... down-down ... so, I asked the group to SELL. Sold all 1.13-1.15.

PoHuat : I always like lagging counters ... dislike to chase with others. So, I bought 2.42-2.44 closing yesterday, and today it breakout of 2.45. Hold.

Gloves : This is another sector that is doing well ... Kossan breakout again today to new high. I bought. Hold ...zzzz

Today is 22/7 = pi day .... my little gal is 7.

So ... time to rest and bring her kai-kai tonight. haha.

Thanks for reading ... I will try to find the momentum to blog again, may be.

ChinaA50 and HSI

ChinA50-c6 : This is just one of the call-warrants many retailers punting into.

HSI : This is Hang Seng Index ... in case many are punting into those HSI-cw (CW = call-warrants such as HSI-cv) and HSI-pw ( PW = put-warrants such as HSI-hd).

I do see the craziness in punting into these call- or put- warrants.

I am bullish in HSI ... and bullish in China-tech stocks. So, I have mentioned that I m moving funds into that ... buy-n-hold. Tonight's meeting I will share about HK and China stocks I have interests in and also ... about these call/put.

e-learning : I have started first session of e-learning (July to Nov ... 5 months duration) last Tuesday. This is for those wish to learn thru online, at the comfort of your home ... but longer as it is dynamic and difficult to squeeze in all contents in 1.5hours per session. But ... I will guide from the very basic about trading.

If one wishes to join me in person, you may attend my 8 hours trading workshop (Sat and Sun).

cohort-18 : This weekend, Raya weekend ... I will have my trading workshop as I have delayed the June's batch. Luckily they could understand that I was not available to have the workshop last month(due to my father-in-law). So ... this is to inform to those interested to learn technical-charting and indicators .... and plan for trading.

contact me at 012-821 0129 or e-mail

Time to go .... as market is recovering now.

SELLDOWN : Crude Oil

After the Greece selldown, last night we do see selldown in crude-oil(minus 3%). So ... KLCI dived today morning ... FKLI minus 25 at the moment.

BUY CALL for FGV by our PM

"Do not be unduly worried as Felda will do the necessary to make sure it does better. Felda shares will go up. It has all the potential for this.

sigh. Those FGV settlers still trust him?

SOY down to 31.40 level now. The selldown is not only in China-bubble-bursting. HSI is down 1000 points again after that day selldown of 1000points.

This was that day ... I captured the nice number 888 points.

This is HSI this morning ...

AirAsia broken 1.43 low ... I do remember I bought 1.50 and shown here ... then sold off 1.60 above. If I do not sell ... today is 1.32 now. Will you buy AirAsia at current level?

With the further weakening in MYR, will you still buy KLSE's stocks? So ... I have to move to HKSE as HSI's PE is half of KLCI's. Interesting ... talking about valuation.

I have shared my idea of investing in HKSE with some of my tratles during our monthly meeting. Most are not interested as fear (of not knowing) is there. So ... let us see if my analysis is right, say in 1-2 yrs time.

This is China-Mobile. It is dropping another 5% today ... at HKD90 level now.

So ... if you want to look for valuation, checkout HKSE. If you wish to know more, then come for my e-meeting ... as I m going to have one soon, for those interested to move their depleting MYR into HKD.

e-learning : I hv started my first session last night. good ... and this morning, showing them LIVE about AirAsia. Some are newbies ... so, they will learn from real-time prices and what to check etc etc. If anyone still wish to join me, you are welcomed. Every Tuesday night, 9.30pm.

Time for fetching my girl from school ... and have two tuition classes later.

SELLDOWN due to Greece

Global markets re-act negatively ... with the Greece "NO" vote. Dived ... gap-down ... selldown. Will discuss these tonight with my trading members.

Profit is difficult to come by ... matter of the losses? If KLCI down 3% and our portfolio down by 1%, do we still considered beating the market?

I have started to trade KLCI's index-linked counters ... remembered the M.A.T.I I shared? It stands for MISC, Axiata, Tenaga and IOICorp. All were profitable trades. So ... I started to focus in trading index-linked counters (oversold) ... for technical rebounds.
It is too high risk to trade penny-stocks. But, it is an opportunity for those risk-takers(with knowledge) to buy into oversold, go0d penny-stocks.

e-learning : Starting tmr night 9.30pm  ... those wish to learn basic charting/technical analysis and trading through the comfort of your home(thru online la), do contact me at 012-821 0129 or add me at ... still have back-dated e-mail to reply ( urgently.

HSI : Dived 1200plus points just now. great rebound play

HSI-cv : I grabbed 36.5 and 38cents ... just sold 39.5cents moment ago, for dinner.

Time to go ...

Be More Productive

12 Things You Can Do Every Day To Become Highly Successful by Michael Sanders

1. Plan your day the night before

Stephen Covey stated in his book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People that you should review the coming day the night before. This way you have already created a mental map of how tomorrow will flow. You can make sure you have the information for your meetings and if you need to add other activities you can know where you may have time. By planning your day the night before you are being proactive and not reactive.

TEH : I do have the book by Stephen Covey but did not read much of it ... perhaps few pages. I will like to spend some time to read the book this weekend! So ... we have heard of this habit ... to PLAN at night before we sleep ... for tmr or a week ahead. But, most of us ...just do not have that habit, naturally. Ok ... it is JULY now ... I have to FORCE myself to plan for tmr/week after dinner!! I do hv many dairies ... many types too. haha.

2. Create a “to do” list

Okay, so you have just planned your day. Any thoughts pop up? What main topic were you going to cover in that customer meeting? Make a note. Were you low on milk this morning at breakfast? Grab some on the way home from work if you forgot to already. Any calls you need to make? Write it down. If you create a list of things you want to accomplish the next day you have a greater chance of accomplishing them.

TEH : Creating a to-do-list ... gotcha. Will create that but mine is VERY long list. I have a list of 30plus recently that I have only done less than 10? Haha ... time to be more serious to get moving and accomplish more!!

3. Get a good night sleep

This is easier to do after you have planned your day, feel comfortable with what you have to accomplish tomorrow and then can clear your mind of it. You won’t have to lay in bed trying to keep straight in your head what you have to do tomorrow because you have a list. You should also sleep no less than eight hours and make sure you go to bed about the same time every night. If you do like to read before bed do it somewhere other than your bed.

TEH : I do need to sleep before 11.30pm and wake up 5.30am. In my opinion, 6 hours of sleep is sufficiently good enough. So ... I will do some light reading around 11pm (half hour per day). I do need to ut the alarm on ... and making it a routine.

4. Get up earlier than you need to

Getting ready for work in the morning always seems to take longer than we think. Then there is traffic, weather and parking to deal with. If you give yourself extra time you will be more present in the moment when you load your car or computer bag and the chances of forgetting something is reduced. You will also be more relaxed when you reach your destination. Nothing says failure like a rushed, disorganized sweaty guy running into a meeting late.

TEH : I hv failed in my new-year resolution ... to wake up at 5am (Robin Sharma) and I m becoming lazier ... so, ok ... make it 5.30am, wake up and exercise ... and bath. 6am breakfast! As I m no longer rushing to college to teach(working), I still need to fetch my girl to school(nearby). I do not have traffic issue as I m still riding my kap-cai. Yes ... I need to reach my trading table in a relax mode, plan my trades while waiting for market to open.

5. Read

You have been hearing this since elementary school. It doesn’t matter what you read. You can read the Wall Street Journal for 45 minutes a day or a novel at night before you go to bed, just not in your bed. You can read business or books about hobbies. The point is that you read. Reading increases our vocabulary, makes us better spellers and exercises the muscle that is our brain… Well, the brain is an organ, but you get the point.

TEH :  I do read ... but not as much I would like to. There are many self-help books that I do like, besides investing/trading books. Now, I m reading on biz-book and how to be an entrepreneur!! Yes ... I do have goals to move into biz (an honest one, dislike cheating and lying). So, I set-up a tuition center and working on the next biz(anyone hv the idea and wish to work on it, let's have a drink).  After years of reading on investing/trading ... I quit my full-time job to focus in the B-quadrant.

6. Set goals

A goal is a dream with a timeline. Not only do you need to set goals, but set different sized goals. If your goal is start your own company you need to set goals about gaining skills that will help you run a small business. Start by getting a job in the industry and then try to get promoted in the first year. Or if your goal is to write a book set a goal of having a certain number of chapters done by a certain date.

TEH : I have placed 5 years to learn about trading. I m still learning much. So ... I am placing another 5 years to teach trading, and have started that earlier than planned. In my 7th year, I still have 3 years to prepare myself ... as a trainer for traders. Yes, we need at least 10years of consistent learning and experiencing trading before we could be well-verse in trading. That also, we need to be very hardworking and focus in our trades. Learn along the way ... another goal is to write a book in 3 years time!! Yes ... finally, I hv the guts to plan to be an author, besides I m a blogger. What is it about? Haha ... I don't even know what I want to write about but definitely not on trading. Perhaps, I could write about how I struggled financially merely 5 years ago, being a college lecturer ... and my struggle of educating myself about finances. How I moved from E to I ... and B, and still hanging on S (tuition). That will be easier to write as it is about myself, nothing2hide. Hehe.

7. Measure your goals

How do you know if you are on track if you don’t measure your goals? If you are six months into that job and things are not looking like a promotion is going to happen… Why? Did you underestimate how much you needed to learn? That’s fine – adjust your timeline. If you are not doing what you need to be doing think about why you have lost interest or momentum. Maybe this line of work is not for you?

TEH : I have quitted in many ventures ... people come and go. Things have to move on, get to know new people ... create new ventures and work from there. While past mistakes could be used as a guidance, we need to recognise if it is suitable for us. Is that what drives us to be passionate and we will be persistent on it? If not, we will lose interest or momentum ... it happened to me many of times, as when I failed ... I have to move away to reflect on my failures. So ... failing is common. Get use to it ... and pick-up ourselves, move on. Set new goals.

8. Reflect

Our lives are a story, not a plan. A plan is linear and a story does not follow a straight path. Your life is a story with subplots and surprise characters. It is okay to re-evaluate your goals and where you think you were headed and change direction. That is how you learn and figure out what you are good at doing.

TEH : Argeed. Yes, sir.

9. Get a mentor

A mentor should keep you honest. If you are not hitting your goals they should call you on it. You should have regular meetings with them and let them know what your goals are and the time frame you have given yourself to accomplish them.

TEH : How I wish I have a mentor ... guiding me when I was a total newbie. So ... I created my trading group, e-learning, trading workshop ... to reach out for newbies who are in stock-market trading. Yes ... I a being a mentor to many in my trading group, most of them appreciate my teaching(of trading). That motivates me to reach out for more. How about mentor ... in changing our MINDSET? Financial mindset, in general. I read books ... acquiring as much knowledge as I could. But ... if I have a mentor, at least he will help me to shorten my learning curve!! So ... I joined Dr Peter Yee's group recently ... WMT. It is great to find a mentor!! I m still looking for a mentor in entrepreneurship ... so, I joined the ToastMaster group(comprises of mostly self-employed entrepreneurs) recently ... and will be joining them for talks/training. We are going up Genting for training on Teamwork in Aug and I am excited about that.

10. Stay healthy

Sick people find it difficult to be successful because they are just trying to stay alive. Take care of yourself. Exercise, stretch and eat right. Exercise is a great way to keep you mind fresh by letting off stress. It can also give you time to gather your thoughts. Stretching is important because it keeps you from getting injured and then not being able to exercise. I am not talking about running a marathon – A long walk on a regular basis counts.

TEH : A must to follow as I am slowly changing my diet. Yes ... wake up 5.30am .. exercise. Do simple stretching after hours sitting here!!

11. Focus

Multitasking is a lie. Successful people focus on what they are good at and leave everyone in their dust  Look at what you are interested in doing in life and see if you are good at it. If you are, you are done looking. You have found your ONE thing. See you on the other side!

TEH : Ooppsss ... I failed here. I have so many on my plates that at times, I do wonder how I cope. From trading, maintaining my trading group ... giving tuition .... to blogging here!! Hmm ... ok, clearing off more responsibilities before I burn-out!! Perhaps, that explain why I am doing things so slow ... and not moving higher or faster. FOCUS, ok?

12. Rinse and repeat

Consistency is what makes people successful. I’m sure you have all had that coach who told you, “what you do in practice, you do in a game.” That person is a genius, listen to them. Practice makes perfect… fake it ’till you make it. Whatever saying you want to use it all means the same thing. Once you have found your one thing keep working on getting better and better at it. How do you do that? Start with number one on this list and do all twelve steps over again, day after day until it becomes second nature. It takes 21 days to form a habit.

TEH : I have found trading/investing. I am getting better and better as I want to be a good trader, in future. To be a successful trader, I need to comply to ALL the 12 pointers above!! Yes ... let me be more discipline and do that for my own sake.

Have a good productive day, week or year ahead.

BULL DAY : Thanks Fitch

KLCI is shooting plus 30 at the moment!! Hurray ... sell day!!

KLCI dropped about 170points ... from the recent top. MANY risk-factors ... foreign funds exiting, MYR weakening, 1MDB at risk ... Greece in the brink of exiting Euro ... many bad-news and stories to create FEAR ... but, retailers are smart these days. We do not panic selling ... and today, it rebounded sharply. Wow.
Bottom-fishing : I do have a good e-meeting last night (for public and free). So ... for those missed the bottom-fishing talk ... I wont mind making a repeat (as some of my members requested). Join me tonight
9.30pm ... as usual ... go to
Note : Dear Mr Murali(of i3) ... do come for tonight e-meeting if you are free. I have not receive e-mail from you or your number (to send u the link) ... so, you do need to add me in facebook so that I could get in touch with you. Hope you are free to attend my humble talk. It is free, anyway.
e-learning : I hv not replied to few e-mails regarding my e-learning which will be starting NEXT TUESDAY. Yes, it is ON ... please go to the facebook link above or sms/watsapp me at 012-8210129 for details.
I will be sharing from very basic level of trading besides teaching the application of technical-charting. It is from July to Dec, every Tuesday night(online learning). We will also analyse LIVE charts as we move together ... guidance for newbies/traders-alike.
So ... I do think by guiding newbies about trading for 5-months, they will learn better. They could ASK questions ... and need to provide a platform to compile those Q&A for learning purposes.
Yes ... a teacher in me. I am back to teaching!!
