    But to be a good rider, you have to change with your environment,and adjust yourself to its rhythm.

    Putting $millions in the bank is the safest but not the most wise thing to do. Make yr money work harder for u... Invest it!
    The more you work, the more money you have.
    The more money you have, the more you spend.
    The more you spend, the less money you have.
    The less money you have, the more you work.

    Well, as the same as Throttle, if you interested, I may also assist in your investment portfolio.

    You can either PM me and I will arrange for you to come to my office where we can discuss more in detail.

    By the way, be honest with us if you are really interested. Feel free to compare my office's investment strategies with Throttle's investment strategies.

    Don't be a crapper as mentioned.

    No pun intended.

    Yes I'm super tempted to buy a second hand 996. But I think i will wait for my bonus first. i got many bills to pay and a Porsche is definitely not my top priority.

    Well, I am just a hardworking lad trying to build up my AUM. Ha ha, no doubt I am still learning from sifus like you in the industry.

    Yeah, xiaowang's my nick too, usually called by my Chinese friends.

    Yup, we do share a lot in common; bikes, name, same industry, however our finances are way apart. Though I am working to close the gap asap.

    Just bought my first apt in District................................8. Haha, not a big deal indeed but I am grateful and delighted with it. I must work harder and harder....

    Let me give you some hints, it's near a place full of sporting history and was written about in the newspaper some weeks ago.

    On the outside main road lies the scariest stretch on any weekend. Deep inside lies a quiet neighbourhood facing the lush green surrounded by our vibrant and bright city.

    Oh yes, it's near to the hospital which you probably was born in. Can you guess it now?

    SOrry to go off-topic, to all, whosoever is interested, you might like to pm Throttle and me if you have investible funds of SGD 1 million for me and if I am not wrong, SGD 3 million for Throttle.

    There are diffn investment strategies by different banks nonetheless. Feel free to explore your risk appetite.

    Hehe... Apologies for the wanton ranting but you probably know that chances of a millionaire member in SBF is not high...

    If you're talking about other currencies (Korean Won) or in other nominations (cents) or other entities (little tadpoles) then I have...

    Anyway, if anyone can share some information or provide guidance for those interested in growing their wealth it would be most helpful.

    actually , i recall an earlier thread regarding investing and making money. but very very very frankly speaking (and i know it may offend some people) if the amount is too little, it may not really be worth all the effort.


    If you dont have much money (less than $100k investible)
    My formula is this (I didnt say it's guaranteed):- stack up on stocks which have good value and prospects, as much as you can over the years. In other words keep your long term savings in stocks.

    Dont punt, dont margin trade, dont short sell. just go long on a few solid ones in a series of tranches over the years. You'll work out just fine. Just be down to earth and understand that anything which can make you a very rich man overnite can turn you into a bankrupt just as quickly.

    few days back, came across this article, which reported that if someone invested $10k worth of raffles edu stocks in 2002. now, in 2006, after 4yrs, the returns are 11,000%. meaning over 4 yrs, ur paper profit will turn u into a millionaire.

    but the prob is sniffin out "THE ONE".
    and hw many pple have the discipline to hold it for 4yrs?

    The example you quoted is as good as looking at the 4D results and stating that betting on the winning numbers will gain u some incredible gain. In reality, stocks that do grow so quickly are usually highly volatile and/or rare.

    Read Throttle's advice

    Just be down to earth and understand that anything which can make you a very rich man overnite can turn you into a bankrupt just as quickly.
    Before thinking about 'investments', better be sure the seed money is expendable to begin with.

    if u rem the period around 2002 was actually economic downturn (or rather yrs after the asian crisis b4 recovery), if u had holdings in any blue chips u could have been reaping in the profits now.

    u made 4 years sound very long, i believe many investors out there also hold long, which may be 10 - 20 years.
    i love dividends.

    That one is heaven sent.
    No one is his right mind will hold a bloody penny stock for so long.

    Imagine if you had bot it at 2 cts, wouldnt you sell it if it had gone up by 200%?
    For sure!
    After selling it at 6cts, wouldnt it be very difficult to buy it back at 8cts?
    For sure!
    unknowingly the 8 cts became 12cts , and it would be even harder to buy at 12cts.
    For sure!

    So at the end of the day, who made the most. Not the market but the real busniess owners of this share whose equity stake shot up.

    In any case, everyone can try this method.
    Look for all the penny stocks.
    Screen them down to 10 of your favourites.
    Dump $2000 into each one and forget it .
    Total only $20k
    If only one makes it big, you make money. HAHHA

    On a serious note, my own personal portfolio is made up of Real Estate, Bonds, Equity and FX derivatives. in other words a few differnt asset classes. It's still not optimal yet becos i dont have enough money to make it optimal.

    That's why i say if not enough money, very difficult to invest meaningfully.

    For sure!
    After selling it at 6cts, wouldnt it be very difficult to buy it back at 8cts?
    For sure!
    unknowingly the 8 cts became 12cts , and it would be even harder to buy at 12cts.
    For sure!

    So at the end of the day, who made the most. Not the market but the real busniess owners of this share whose equity stake shot up.

    In any case, everyone can try this method.
    Look for all the penny stocks.
    Screen them down to 10 of your favourites.
    Dump $2000 into each one and forget it .
    Total only $20k
    If only one makes it big, you make money. HAHHA

    On a serious note, my own personal portfolio is made up of Real Estate, Bonds, Equity and FX derivatives. in other words a few differnt asset classes. It's still not optimal yet becos i dont have enough money to make it optimal.

    That's why i say if not enough money, very difficult to invest meaningfully.

    Wah, bro... Need to learn alot from you. Gonna start investing next year too.

    sure thing, PAithorn.
    I'm smoking a Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 2 right now!

    Anyway, my biggest mistake is buying a brand new car.
    Lose more than $50k on paper in 2 years....sigh....
    My biggest win is buying a District9 property last year.
    20% paper profit now.

    I guess you win some and lose some....

    I dont understand what you mean Evilyn

    $50k is the margin amount.
    If holding big position and the market steady, within one day can make $50k or can wipe out.

    I'm not joking. I have FX personal trading acct and I hold up to only USD1mil position. If you all trust me, we can do. but if lose already plse dont cry father cry mother.

    Care to elaborate what is "hold big position"? Sounds like some technical jargon to me.

    You have always posted saying you only make investments for $100k and up. Anything lesser is not worthwhile so I never expected you'll be interested with $50k capital.

    Am I correct to assume that this investment plan you're proposing is very high risk very high gain? What is the holding period or time before you know whether to open a bottle of Moet and Chadon or to jump from Clementi MRT?

    Firstly, I have never posted that I make only investments for $100k and up. You must have misread somewhere, I clarify.

    Anyway $50k is only the margin or in other words your betting chips or as you say the capital. The big position can be something about U$2mil.

    Yes, it is high risk high gain, as mentioned on my post.
    That's why I say "whack the market"
    If small amount, whack what ? heh heh heh

    There is no predetermined investment horizon. It can be one day, one week, or one month. All depends on the market. Just like in Casino, Big or Small. Hahah. (I may be laughing but i aint joking)

    My biggest and quickest gain is about USD3,000 in one nite.

    By the way, no need to jump, if you are willing and can afford to lose the $5k.

    The biggest casino in the world = financial markets.
    No limit on bets. Hahahah

    Ya... Nearly wanted to ask if this is like big/small. Make it or break it kind. Is there the option to cut loss by bailing out if things look too bad so that at least you get some taxi fare?

    I'll need to slog 2 months for what you make in a night...

    Anyway, I'm not affluent enough at this point of time to be non-chalant about $5k. Maybe 10% of that I can still lose and not throw myself down a well. But I'll still ram my head against a wall... And $5k? Can't imagine what I'll do to myslef...

    Of course can cut loss.
    Anytime, you think you have had enough, can cut loss immediately.

    AS per your post, i think you are not suitable to do this yet.
    I certainly prefer to see you enjoy a bottle of Moet than see you jump into the well.

    I've lost USD5k in a few nites as well. So you win some you lose some, as long as at the end, you win. Last year i made about $23k. This year very tough year, only made $6k until now. Hopefully next year will be good.

    Yup. Which is why thinking now might be a good time to start learning the jargons and ropes of this field. Coming from a technology background, this is like greek to me. Hopefully when I come to the point when I am getting enough from my full time job to have loose change to play the market, I can make educated and informed decisions.

    Afterall, investments IMO should be like "windfall" and sideline and just reside in the shadow of the main job. Any gains treated as bonus and losses able to take in stride without needing to face the wall. Otherwise, if there's no clear separation from investment profits and income from main job, there'll no longer be focus in life. This is also a mentality that could keep oneself from getting burnt or life messed up or ruined...

    Yes, that is good philosophy.

    As my mother always say, real wealth is the one that you built with perseverance and hardwork.

    After reading a few posts, I can't help but to get involved myself too. Well, investment comes in really different forms. If you want high gains, you gotta accept high risk. As mentioned, you could lose your capital in a few days or gain double digit gains in a single day. Of course those investments play in the FX derivatives market.

    However there are still other options out there. Diversify is the word. Don't forget your bonds, treasury notes, real estate and your securities. Neglect neither your risk appetite nor your investment time frame. Compounded interest will boast your investment gains over time if you have diversify well. Short term gains are also possible when provided with the right market analysis and proper technical forecasting. But there is no such thing as a free lunch. Understand yourself to invest well. Cheers.
