Story Time : 2010


Lost to low-low level team ... yet again. sigh.

Today's story is about the first apartment I rented(2010) when I first came back to KL (from KK, Sabah)


Took the picture from 'google' ... year was 2010 Jan.

Up-root from the comfortable nice Sabah ... into concrete jungle in Subang Jaya. As I got the teaching job at Taylor's College (SS15), I was looking for simple apartment to rent ... nearby so that my young family could stay.

Found a unit at Court-9 ... rental RM900, and I just grabbed it. Old and un-furnished ... it is OK for me as I was too tight (financially) to stay in so-called more decent. This is a nice place, actually.

Could not afford anything much ... my kind aunt bought me a simple mattress to sleep on ... and got my old 20yrs old 21" Sony TV back to watch. No sofa ... fr my kids to watch TV. the whole unit basically bare ... slowly I added in simple dining table (was eating by sitting on the floor) ... then added a bed (was sleeping on thin mattress) ... added a working desk ... and then only a TV-cabinet!!

My boy was 4yrs old ... and girl was 2yrs old  ... yup, 2010 was a struggling year, adjusting new life here. That was some ... hmm ... 7 years ago? wow.

2010 ... market was recovering well, but I was very discipline not to withdraw from my trading account. I only took RM6k for moving back, actually. Sold off my Kancil ... and bought a Proton here (fully paid the loan).

Financially, I was still struggling ... 2010 was the year where I was still 'unknown' as best Math tutor ... I have to travel to "Dua Residence" (near KLCC) and Sri Hartamas in my small kap-chai from Subang Jaya to give tuition!! A year with Taylor's ... it is easy to see that I m a very experienced in teaching Math ... college required me to teach Further Math instead ... and slowly many students looking for me for classes ... 2010 was a real struggling year ... when adjustments and changes are NOT simple, yet it is worth it.

Looking back into 2010 ... that was my journey back ... into something better. The decision to move back to KL was not easy but a MUST. I was more alert about financial after 5 years of reading financial-books and polishing my fnancial-mindset. So ... 2010 is the next journey after I struggled to start in 2005 (married year).

So ... stage 1 journey 2005- 2009 was in Sabah ... read and learn about FINANCIAL. Failed in keropok-biz, market crashed on me 2008 and gained much in 2009.

Stage 2 started in 2010 ... at court-9.

By mid-2011, I bought an apartment after searching for few months!! I was lucky to buy at good price of Jati2 apartment and stayed there from 2011 till end 2014. I moved out of court-9 in mid-2011.

1.5 years in court-9 ... collected many memories of struggle ... where I will spend many hours learning technical-trading while giving tuition here-there. I was too busy that I 'missed' my kids growing up ... fast. I did'nt bring them to park ... there is a park infront of the apartment ... didn't bring them to the swimming pool much. Today, I will make sure I bring them to the pool once in a month, at least.

2010 was the start of my stage 2 planning for financial freedom ... and in order to do that, I need to clear off ALL my debt (3 credit-cards and personal loans).

2010 to 2014 : Clear debts stage ... and increase saving (planning ahead of crash back then).

Yes, my financial journey divided into 5yr-goal ... n planning. I m in my stage 3 now ... 2015-2019. So, 2010 is a very significant year to me ... where I started to plan for my footing in tuition classes and trading.

As I have shared in my e-meeting previously, planning and preparation is very important to achieve my financial goals. Stage 4 : 2020 to 2024 is my retiring stage where I would be involved in charity-plans!!

What a journey ... and I went through it ... the difficult 2010.

One may read my posts ... back in 2010. haha.

There ... I seldom re-read my posts (haha) as the posting are meant for my OWN keeping ... somehow, over the years, I have 'followers' ... some stalkers too. We cant stop what others doing ... more importantly, we live our own life and get alive!!

Alright ... time to go after morning rest. This week is another busy week with another trading-workshop to attend!!

Stock Alert : KNM




KNM gapped down to hit new low ... 30.5cents as the previous was 31cents. Closed for lunch 31cents.

Note : DO NOT talk about oil price up, KNM going up again. I gave SAAG (delisted) as example this morning to my group ... for understanding and learning purposes.

Choice is ours


Monday morning ... raining ... so, i decided to DRIVE. Well ... rushing hour of 7.30am ... so, it is heavy jam as usual (plus it is raining!!)


So ... I wrote in my facebook :

Reflection on : Morning jam ... to work.

I seldom drive but I do not wish to ride bike with raincoat and get myself partially wet on Monday morning ... so I drove.

It took me 45mins to move from USJ1 to SS15 ... a usual 15mins ride.

My thoughts go to

1. Those driving to work and jam in daily basis for 1-2 hours. Many might be late today.
2. Those riding bike to work ... under the rain, cold ... and dangerous.
3. Those taking public transportation ... the hassle of walking with umbrella from stations to working place

It has always been in my mind on the choices we are taking ...

Can we solve it by riding a bike instead of driving?

Can we stay near enough from our working place so that we do not need to commute ..far?

Can we working from home ... or have flexible working hours?

Personally, I have solved all these issues after years of planning.

Yes ... i do ride bike to avoid the jams, staying near enough from my working place ... and quit my full-time teaching job to have flexibility of time n space.

---------------------------------------------------------------

It is a matter of choice ... so, we should STOP saying "No Choice".

Time to move to do work ... by choice (and not by force).

Cycle Analysis (CA)


Morning ... Friday is a busy day for me!! Still tired as I went to a market-talk last night, drove there (PJ Trade Center) ...jammed. It took me 1.5 hours, no thanks to the ran too. Anyway, the talk is ... WORTH the travel. It is by Derick (Timing and You) and I will share few of his pointers ... as I agreed and parallel to many of his views!!

He is into CA : Cycle Analysis ... where he analyses cycles --- bonds, equities, currencies, commodites.

Crash : most probably 2018



DOW : going up high ... target 30, 000 this year. New high again last night ... gogogo?

USD : up up ...



Gold : up up ... can consider GLD which traded in US.

So ... we should go to US-markets as KLSE or SGX would be lagging. LONG DOW or S&P500 . RIde on the strong uptrend up as that could create EUPHORIA (we are at optimism stage) and then, SHORT SHORT SHORT ... let it craassssh.

Profit from the short ... prepare to buy blue-chips at dirt-cheap level.

Easier said than done ... a person needs to be very discipline and patient. Also, needs lots of experiences and guts ... to go thru those stages!! How? I have shared my 4-pointers on preparation for market-crash ... while letting others to predict when the crash will comes. And yes, it WILL.

Then ... buy inverse-etf to short DOW crashing. Then ... come back KLSE to buy blue-chips ... and hold. Then ... after 2022 ... sell for huge profits and retire (as I  only  have this one cycle).

Wealth distribution was from 2007 to 2009. That I do agree with him too.

If we know how to capitalise during crash, we could be in the minority side ... winners.

Those wish to know Derick, go to Timing and You (facebook) and website. I m not working for him but I feel his ideas are parallel to mine ... just that I do not time market-crash.

Ge.ne.ro.si.ty in life


Morning ... Thu ... woke up to another NEW high fr DOW. I have sold many ... and seems that pull-back or correction is overdue.

Yesterday was a tiring day ... for my emotion.

In the morning, got a message from a member (and a friend now) that she got me new toilet-trolley and donating to the old-folks I went to recently.


This is what I have wanted to buy (x2) and won't mind paying for them (to be donated to the home). But, she got them for me ... and she is donating instead.


There ... a new one. Now, I just need to collect from her ... treat her a good coffee and thank her. I appreciate such 'touching' help. She said I have inspired her to help others ... and yeah, that is my wish ? Spreading generousity ....


What is life ... chasing the material-items for ourselves and fight-argue-battle with other humans ... to show our ego and suppressing our feelings.

I choose 'generosity' anytime ... so, it is a HABIT I wish to instil in my wife and kids.

I will like to share in tmr night e-meeting (9.30pm?) to talk a little about what I have done and involved in ... as doing charity is my retirement past-time (haha).

Well ... here is the link. Talk about my retirement DREAM : Involvement in charity org/homes.


Second emotional event ... it was in noon, I was having a class when my wife called and told me that our girl won again ... my little girl, who is born 'special' won her running event again this year. She was the defending champ!! Well .. at age 3-4yrs old ... she could barely walk!! Well ... you have to be the parents of special-kid to understand what we went thru .... in-out of hospital, therapies and courage to face reality.

It is worth every sweat and tears ... and seeing that she can RUN now is amazing!! We all take our limbs for granted, I guess?

Well ... we celebrated by bring her to her fav McD (discourage her for fast-food)

Then ... at night, had a biz-meeting ... yet, another emotional situation to handle (P&C).

What a day ... when you are involve in charity, you will get to know many generous people who could easily touch our hearts.

When we are involved in our kids up-bringing and days, we will be emotionally involved in their growing-up too ...

and when we are involving in biz ... we will have partners to deal with, communicate and engaged in.

IMAGINE life ... in our own SELFISH world ... where we are only concern how much we can EARN and GET THE MONEY from others ... what car(s) we are driving ... and work-work-work for more MONEY to change our handphones, chairs ... or bed?

IMAGINE life ... when everything is about YOU YOU YOU ... more of YOU ... spending time to condemn others, gossips or criticise others ... while you are seen as the BEST in your own selfish world.



IMAGINE ... what is life, anyway?

DOW at new high 20,743



This is DOW weekly chart ... we are in new-high ... high on vicodin (Dr House's pill).


Here is the side-effect of Vicodin ... as I m watching HOUSE now (Season 3 : Episode 14 now), he will do anything to get his feeds.

So ... DOW at new high ... as would it be a potential bubble? I will continue to stay sideway at the moment.

Have a nice long day ahead ...

Note : Heard that TTB revised his view to 'bullish'. Is that true? I want to talk about Market-Crash ... interested?

THINK and GROW ... rich

Morning from Shah Alam ... seksyen 15 here. Having breakfast with wife while talking about being "RICH" ... balance with PEACE and HAPPINESS.

http://www.businessinsider.com/im-a-self-made-millionaire-and-im-convinced-there-are-only-5-ways-to-get-rich-2016-2?IR=T&r=US&IR=T

There are many definitions of what it means to be rich.

Being rich is more of a state of mind than a dollar amount. Truthfully, the rich can be poor and the poor can be rich. For example, being rich could be a family of five who lovingly share their small piece of bread in a third-world country. Conversely, another family of five may live in a 12-bedroom home and still have strife over an unlimited first-class feast!

Moreover, being rich is really about having it all. It would be ideal to have a combination of the aforementioned situations: the happy family enjoying a delectable meal in the big house — and it is possible. However, to achieve this kind of wealth, along with financial freedom, personal peace and happiness, you must get committed to it.

You must also be able to enjoy your wealth. Some people put in a hundred hours per week with work but completely neglect their families in the process. Others focus on their family so much that they never really get busy at work because of their obligations. Obviously, achieving a sense of balance will allow you to possess true wealth and also be able to enjoy it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is what I m reading just now ... then, shared with my wife the idea of being RICH. RICH is not defined in what car(s) we are driving or our accounts size ... it is about FAMILY ... HUMAN VALUES .. and how we share with OTHERS. It has nothing to do with US ... individual. It is about appreciating and giving back to society, putting smiles to those needing them.

Will write more ... and include the popular Napolean Hill's book.

Time to do some work ...

Train our brain

Monday morning ... I had a good e-meeting last night, sharing my stories and some of my main characteristics ... being a 'weird' human.

It is HUMAN ... we are our own enemy. It is the SYSTEM ... political, educational, banking.

I talked about many things last night ... got carried away, as normal emotional human would.

5 exercises to train your brain for happiness and success

You have an estimated 70,000 thoughts per day. That's 70,000 chances to build yourself up or tear yourself down.

If you call yourself names, doubt your abilities, and second-guess your decisions, you'll harm your performance (and most likely you'll also be risking your physical and psychological health). But the good news is, you can change the way you think.

Here are five exercises that will train your brain for happiness and success:

1. Differentiate between ruminating and problem-solving

Thinking about strategies that would help you overcome an obstacle is helpful, but imagining yourself unable to tolerate pain isn't productive. Whenever you find yourself thinking about something for an extended time, take a minute to think whether you're ruminating or problem-solving.

If you're actively solving or preventing problems, keep processing. But, if you're simply rehashing things that already happened or making catastrophic predictions about things you can't control, change the channel. Get up and do something to get your mind off the issue and keep your brain focused on more productive activities.

2. Give yourself the same advice you'd give to a trusted friend

If you're like most people, there's a good chance you're overly critical of yourself. But beating yourself up and magnifying your mistakes will only drag you down.

Studies have linked self-compassion to everything from improved psychological well-being and better body image to enhanced self-worth and increased motivation. So make it a habit to speak to yourself in the same way you'd speak to a trusted friend.


3. Label your emotions

Most people have an aversion to talking about or showing their feelings. As a result, many people have become quite distanced from their feelings, which makes it hard for them to even recognize how they're feeling in any given moment.

And when adults do label their feelings, they often do it in an indirect manner. Rather than saying, "I felt sad," someone might say, "I had a lump in my throat," or, "My eyes got watery." Or, instead of saying, "I am really nervous," someone might be more included to say, "I have butterflies in my stomach."

Spend a few minutes every day acknowledging your emotional state. Label your feelings and consider how those emotions are likely to affect your decisions.

Whether you're feeling sad about something in your personal life, or you're worried about something going on in the office, your emotions will spill over into other areas of your life if you aren't aware of them.

4. Balance your emotions with logic

Whether you're faced with a tough financial decision, or you're experiencing a family dilemma, you'll make your best decisions when you're able to balance your emotions with logic. When your emotions are running high, take steps to increase your rational thinking.

The best way to balance out your emotions is to create a list of the pros and cons of your choices. Reading over that list can help take some of the emotion out of the decision and equip you to make the best decisions.

5. Practice gratitude

Gratitude has been linked to a host of physical and psychological benefits, including happiness. One study even found that grateful people are 25% happier.

So whether you make it a habit to talk about what you're grateful for over breakfast every morning, or you write in a gratitude journal before bed, train your brain to look for the good in life. It could be the simplest, yet most effective way to boost your well-being.

Create a healthy mindset

The conversations you have with yourself have a profound effect on your life. If you want to reach your greatest potential, it's important to build your mental muscle. Exercise your brain every day and over time, you'll train your brain for happiness and success.


9.15 am : KLCI flat ... nothing much. So ... I m going to do some reading.


An APPLE a day, keeps the dctor away? At new high now ...

Time to rest ... and read.

DOW at 20 611.86 high




Trump-effect-rally ... welcoming DOW to another new high ... everyday is a bull-market.

Over in KLSE ... we do rub-on little of the heat but not much significant movements ...say to 2000 level? We are waiting there ... for everyone to yell "BULL market"

Contrarian Strategies

Contrarian investing is a type of investment strategy distinguished by buying and selling against the grain of investor sentiment during a specific time. A contrarian investor enters the market when others are feeling negative about it and the value is lower than its intrinsic value. When there is an overarching pessimistic sentiment on a stock, it has the possibility of lowering the price so low, the downfalls and risks of the company's stock are overblown. Figuring out which distressed stocks to buy and selling them once the company recovers, thus boosting the stock value, is the major play for contrarian investors. This can lead to securities returning gains much higher than usual. However, being too optimistic on hyped stocks can have the opposite effect.

Read more: Contrarian Definition | Investopedia



Many contrarians have the view of the market as an eternal bear market. This does not necessarily mean they view the market as negative but keep a healthy skepticism as to how certain general investors feel about the market. Overly high valuations can lead to eventual drops when investors' expectations do not work out. The principles behind contrarian investing can be applied to individual stocks, an industry as a whole or even entire markets.
As DOW going up higher ... being a contrarian, I have reduced my position ... into 70% cash in hand now.

I have trained myself to be a contrarian ... after all, only 20% of them profit from markets in long-run. A crash in market or sector ... or our stocks could wipe off our profits. I m speaking from experience, of coz ...

Have a nice day as I will prefer go shopping now and read ... and have classes. Tonight going for a market-talk.

Project : Sleep Well




Yesterday ... I was telling my wife that I will donate our extra pillows (hardly used) to old-folk homes. It started from there!! haha.

This morning I posted in the facebook ... and think might as well I collect pillows from friends or followers or ANYONE .... their extra pillows ... I will learn to wash those used ones (but must be in good conditions la ... not too rotten or smelly, yellowish is OK).

Then ... I shall buy those pillow-cases ... visit the old-folks-home and donate them those pillows!!

Then ... my idea grew bigger. How about the mattresses? I went to many old-fok-homes before ... some homes with very thin-old-deplorable mattresses!! We always donate those rice + items but how about SLEEPING??

So ... what is next for me?

Visit 2-3 old-folks home this Saturday (wanna join me?) and to check on their conditions!! The number of pillows and mattresses I needed to send to them!!

Now ... I need DONATION (RM26 to RM260 would be appreciated) from public and readers!! Will you help?

I need to check the prices of mattresses from the factories and hope they could give good price!! ANYONE know any "mattress" companies ... the boss ... so that I could approach him for 'good' price.

How about BLANKETS? hmm ... ok ok ... add that in.

Stage 1 : Get to know the old-folk homes

Stage 2 : Get to know the prices of mattresses and collect pillows

Stage 3 : Budgeting and getting DONATION

Stage 4 : Send to the homes

Stage 5 : Thanking those helping.

Stage 6 : Sleep well for those old-folks ... and I could sleep well too (haha).

Ok ... time to start working on my project!! Due-date .... end of Mac?

Valentine Week : SELL




Morning ... had a good book-sharing sesion yesterday for some 15 of them ... a good audience, indeed. Thanks for coming ... and listening to my sharings.

That is a page regarding steps we could take to overcome our fear of failure ... and many do not even want to face their fears ... some do not even recognise that they are in fear of certain things, and detering them to be sort-of success.


FBM70 ... a chart to watch ... hitting resistance with HIGH RSI ... selling all my stocks by then.

9.25am : KLCI up 8points ... huat-arr ... hehe. So .. time to reduce further and hold 70% cash.


DOW weekly ... bullish.

Note : I will be going to KK (Sabah) end of July. Will plan for an half-day workshop (anyone interested ... do contact me) on preparation for crash.

I m not a trainer ... or a motivational speaker. I m not good in doing that but I could say that I have went through hell-n-back ... living in FEAR for my first 40 years!! Today, I m so glad I have managed to BREAK of those chains that ... holding me back.

For us to venture into stocks, properties ... biz ... to quit our tiring-non-lucrative jobs ... to take the BOLD steps ahead and taking charge of our lives, we NEED more that just courage!! We also need to be able to sustain the motivation as we would definitely FAIL.

So ... FEAR of failing have STOPPED most of us. Interesting, right? We never venture much as we want to stay COMFORTABLE. I believe MANY read about the word "comfortable zone" ... as if they are going to do anything about that. Haha ... yes, NOTHING comes ... unless we take those STEPS.

Ok .. take a step to join my gathering, IF I m going to do ... just that. Your fear is stopping you. Your doubt ... your MINDSET stopping you from exploring .... well, no thanks to our parents who said "NO" to this-that since we were younger ... get me?

Step 1 : Be bold to venture and explore.

Step 2 : Move ... take actions and be commited.

Step 3 : Keep track and reflect

Step 4 : Re-evaluate and re-fine

Step 5 : Go back to step 1 ...

and you will see improvements.

I m not talking about trading/investing. I m talking about characters building. Without that, you won't even understand WHY some people could make it ... learn skills and continue to do things more successfully than you do.

Everything looks easy and sweet ... when you check on their successes. Some of losers will envy others while others will admire/respect ... I chose to respect and admire many successful individuals ... and will like to meet them, to dig some "tips" or "secrets" of their success. Of coz I know there is no such things as TIPS or SECRETS many so-called gurus selling ... it is in our MIND. Get it? No ... it is your MIND ... triggering your FEAR inside you. Check them out first before you bother to continue to do whatever you THINK you want to do ...

I met a friend ... and after yesterday, we got to know each other a little better. He is successful in his property investing and ... yeah, a 'millionaire'. I m not a millionaire but we could speak for hours as we shared similar wave-lengths in many aspects of lives .... from struggling out of the 'poor-family' background ... change our mindset ... and learn to earn-save-invest.

You see, after the lunch-date with him ... I recognise that I do have many good financial-mindset. I told him that I was not ... some 10 years ago. I was in extreme-bad-financial-crisis situation ... building from nothing, from small ...and he could recognise my strength!! Yes ... he said I m such a strong person ... in focusing in things I m doing.

After all ... I was not good in Math but my determination to be a good Math teacher when I was in form 4 (after failed my first Add Math test ... did you read about that story?). I was so focus in doing my Math work ... and my Math results was amazing!! haha.

Fear of failing ... he failed many times too ... till he involved in insurance-line while followed property-guru ... and made it!! It was his determination to learn about property-investment that lead him to many ventures .... from house, shoplots ... to even factories?!



It is not charting ... it is not the systems and what-have-you ... it is MINDSET. If one could not even understand that, one is too naive to be in markets. No need to pay thousands to those promoters for their courses or softwares la ... use brain, ya.

Same as property ... the so-called sure WIN ... and we paid thousands to attend talks or workshops. He personally told me that he joined one of the 'guru' too ... only to realise that many of his students 'failed' and only 5% made it ... he is that few 5% due to his mindset ...and overcoming his FEAR.

Most are driven by GREED ... without understand the RISK attached, we could never understand further about investments. Trading-investing is NOT for normal human. It is not ... it takes guts, it takes insanity to go against crowd ... and yes, it takes strength to se the long-time results ... the patience and many of times we are tested. We need to get through those moments ...those difficult and trying times.

If a normal human don't even understand the FEAR part ... the FAITH part would not emerge.

So ... I told him this is what I m doing ... sitting tight and wait for crisis. Cash is king, ya.

And ... he appreciated that I shared with him what I m doing now ... preparing for the crash!! Buying into good-strong dividend counters during crash is the best time to INVEST. And he will be allocating some part of his funds for that. Great.

My fees? Join my trading group .... during crash. After crash, no more fees needed as we won't be trading much ... we are going to sit tight for the recovery!! Easier said than done ... but could be done. I have faith ....

Going back to the gathering ... yes, I will like to gather some readers here (it needs not-so-sane readers to follow my writings . haha) ... and to see how we could benefit from each other. Leveraging on each other knowledge .... and push ourselves OUT of our comfort zone?


Also ... I wish to extend my activities to my readers too. Yes ... I like doing some charity. Will you contribute too?

All under planning ... and I m on my way to retire from many things I am doing and towards my jobs in 'charity'. I do need support ...

Reading Chapter One today : Acceptance and Attitude

There are many situations ... we could not control. How we ACCEPT it and chance our views is very important.

Book-sharing : Will share this chapter ONE next week, for those interested about it.


It is not how much you read or know about it ... it is about keeping the momentum in doing what you think the best ... for ourselves, in achieving our goals.

Going to SGX?




STI at resistance ... looking into SGX to buy into some stocks? Changing some MYR to SGD?

I shared 3-stories ... of my coffee-date, lunch-date and dinner-date last night. Identifying some mistakes what common normal retailers done and how we could do better ... next time around.

It is the MINDSET.

KLCI going for 1700 .... as DOW hitting NEW HIGH yesterday, up another 118 points. So, the risk of pullback is higher now .... and will see me paring my stakes. Well, I was heavy inside as busy buying b4 CNY ... now CNY is 15-days ... letting them go.

Tenaga : Sold her off 13.60 opening today ... left some as I keyed in too slow to sell. See how later.

Vlog tonight : New Year Resolution


http://cpteh.blogspot.my/2017/02/vlog-new-year-resolution.html <--- click="" here="" p="">
Tonight's Vlog is about my NEW YEAR 2017 resolutions ... check-balance to see if I m on track and what I have not been doing ... click the above link for the e-meeting link.
 
 
 
 
Recently, I had Lesson 20 : SELLING RULES
 
I m still planning for LESSON 21 : MORE SELLING RULES
 
but someone said he missed my e-meeting of Lesson 20. So ... I will make a REPEAT of Lesson 20 after I m done with Lesson 21, ok? If they could beat Spurs this weekend, I would be motivated enough to have it next week , ya. Check here for the link.

FKLI : Took off my short position this morning. Cleared. Resistance at 1693 ... will short again.


VS : Hitting the resistance ... and initiated SELL VS(i sold VS-wa at 32.5 and 33cents yesterday morning as I m reducing my tech-hot-sector ... it hit 34cents). We shall see if VS will breakout of the resistance. Those buying at RM1.60 level ... can I ask why? Insider news of it going to RM2?

At lunch hour, VS closed at RM1.57 ... if it is a black-candle during closing ... i will ask ALL to exit.

MMSV : Sold her off at 64cents too ... I was so heavy inside tech ...suddenly lighten.




SOP : Haha ... I was teaching technical charting to few of my tratles (those came to my workshop and still following my stock-watch group) ... using SOP chart ... still got few pointers ... but it is OK. Many pointers for them to digest, especially those newbies.


Haha ... I really like teaching ... especially LIVE charts and trading.

will write again later.

Are we in 'euphoric' stage?



Morning ... still kinda blur after a looong day, lacking of sleep too. It was tiring to use public transportation even for a short distance of SS15 Subang Jaya to Jaya-Section14.

Someone said 'euphoria' in market now ... and I have to correct him that we are NOT in such state at all. Forums talking about 'TekSeng' or whatever hot stocks doesn't mean 'euphoria'. Using the so-called right term (subject to our definition too) will help to communicate better ... otherwise, it could be mis-leading. As a mentor to him for past 2 yrs, I will surely wish he would experience 'euphoria' himself ... newbies have not see that in KLSE ... or crash in KLSE would not understand the emotion in play.

DOW hit new high yesterday ... but we are still far far from 'euphoria' (will plan an e-meeting to share how euphoria feels like)

Note : I might consider to buy a bottle ... and put it on my trading-desk to remind me of .... EUPHORIA?

Buying Climaxes

One of the clearest signals of the end of a bull market is a buying climax, during which volume escalates to extreme levels and bullish euphoria permeates media coverage of stocks, market indices or commodities. The key trait of a buying climax is the exhaustion of demand as the last buyers enter the market. The final surge of buying typically leads to price spikes, which may last for days, weeks or months. As demand wanes, prices can go into steep declines as sellers attempt to unload positions in the relative absence of buyers.





This is the ACE-index ... showing the hot mini-euphoria back in mid-year 2014 ... when anything penny also go up (haha ... GST in play).


Ok ... will want to write about my coffee-date and also the gathering .... got class now. off.

Tech-sector : Time to sell


Tuesday morning is my 'off' day ... so, I will have a 'date' with my wife. hehe. Still in 'blues' due to loss to Hull ... down-trending now.

VS going for the resistance at the moment ... selling of my VS-wa today.

Tech has been hot ... too hot for me as I was heavy inside it. Sold Dufu yesterday ... and today selling VS.

VS-wa : Sold 32.5 cents done so far.


Gtronic : When to sell ... ? I asked members to buy during breakout (I did not as I bought penny-tech) and yesterday is a time to sell. We sell when ... RSI of sector is HIGH and the RSI for the stock is also high with reversal candle-stick seen. Also ... when telegram group talking about the sector/stock, the forums happy with profit and when our FB's feeds showing someone boasting about profits from XYZ counters.

SELL when market is HOT.

I still have 2 tech counters!!


GOB : Mentioned over the weekend about "property" and Malton up ... then, missed yesterday as I was not watching ... busy day with 3 classes ... and yes, Liverpool lost (blame them!!).

KSL on the move today too ...property back in focus?

Lazy to write now ... want to go shopping-mall jalan-jalan.

Have a nice selling day.
