The Launching of My Personal Financial Blog

Hi folks, I'm pleased to inform you that I've finally started my personal financial blog. The objective of this blog is to express my passion on stock market investment, share my perspective on local and global stock market investment, especially on the index and individual company share price movement. Most important, I wish to receive reader perspective so we can share and discuss together about it.

The blog is setup in a simple way, where I already start posting since early of this month. Hope it will be improved gradually with more feedback from the readers.

My new blog:

As you can noticed, I will update this new financial blog more frequent than my current personal blog. This is because I can find a topic easily, as there is news, trading and movement from stock market and individual company from Monday to Friday. It's interesting and exciting.

I hope you can join me there. It's black Friday today, where the global stock slide. So I don't think we have a nice weekend for stock investors. Anyway, we can choose to be happy.

Cheers. :)

What is the Meaning of Holiday?

Good news, Christmas and New Year are around the corner again! Wow, I felt like it just been a little while for Christmas celebration on last year. I believe you've planned for your year-end vacation and holidays?

In fact, how do you define the meaning of holidays? Some people like to visit other countries, advanced cities, villages, wild life, beaches or islands, historical places, hometown, or perhaps go for cheap sale city to do crazy shopping. And most of the people make their schedule very tight. Perhaps once they finished their vacations, they will need to get back to work immediately. How about you? Do you ever think of what is the meaning of your vacation? To make yourself tired or to relax from the busy work?

Beach is always the best vacation place to go, as it is really relaxing.

For me, holidays should be the opportunity to get ourselves rest and relax, enjoy the sweet time with friends and family. And we are to borrow this opportunity to recharge ourselves and have the purpose to get back to work again, and do it even better. If we are to get ourselves harder and tired for our holidays, then what's the point of having a vacation?

Some people even take leave and try to relax at home without going anyway, by turning off their mobile and computer. Or they opt for beaches and islands. I think this is a good idea to achieve the meaning above, because this is really what you are trying to relax and enjoy your holidays.

Theme park is good for relaxing too, but just make sure it doesn't get too crowded.

For people who choose to visit the busy city or enjoy the nature of the wild life, please make sure you don't get yourself too tired and try not to get back to work immediately. All we want is to eliminate the stress and having a meaningful vacation! As for my own vacation plan, I'll be going back to my hometown for a 10 days vacation until Christmas!

Happy vacation, folks!

How To Build Confident?

Hey folks, so far I've seen 2 votes on the polls, investment and technology. If no doubt after 3 days, I will be focus on these 2 themes to write my future posts. Thanks for the 2 kind people to spend their few seconds to vote for their interests.

In fact, I would like to write a post on step-by-step on how to obtain A-square Anti-Malware 1 year genuine license for FREE. This is a really good threats protection software. But unfortunately, I've jotted down the wrong date and now it's too late to do so. I'm really sorry about that. If you would like to, you still can get 10% discount from the web site, or 30-days trial.

Sorry folks, no free Anti-Malware for this week. Now, I want to discuss about how we can build up confident in a task. Confident in doing something is about inner part. Looking good or body fit doesn't mean you have the confident. When I was young, I always wonder why some people able to show up confident no matter what he or she doing, and some people just able to show in certain areas, and some people just don't have the confident in everything. Why? Are those experts born to be confident in the first place?

If you have self-confident about yourself, you have already success 50%.

And now, I finally understand how the confident can be built up. Logically, if you have been doing the same thing over the years or many times, you tend to be confident in that thing. For example, some people might not confident in driving before they attend to driving class and take driving exam. Even after they obtained the driving license, they still not really confident in it, because they just learned to drive. And after they have drive a couple of weeks or months, they finally see it is simple job to do, and have confident with it. And they can start illustrate and telling others how to drive and so on.

Is the same thing isn't it? Just like a financial consultant has confident talks about how to do financial planning on others, a businessman has confident in setup multiple businesses upon his first few successes, or perhaps a player has confident in how to tackle the pretty girl in a pub.

Just be patient, you will need time to build up your confident.

The problem is, how do we have confident if we are not experience about the thing before? Just do it? I don't think so. Do you think a player feels confident to get his target when he the pub for the first time? Or do you think a fresh entrepreneur feels he is confident to be success for the 1st time? Perhaps they have the initial confident before the failure. It will be totally gone easily if they give u.

For me, it is not about the confident leads to success, it's your experience and skills. It's your experience and skills that build up the confident in you, and work out the outcome of success. And most of the books and sources will tell you about one thing in order to have the skills and experience, practice. Yes, practice makes perfect. For example, if you want to learn how to play World of Warcraft in order to play with your friends who always hang around the cyber cafe, you will start to spend time to learn about the game. Buy the game to install in your computer, learn each character and what strengths and capabilities they have, and then you keep playing the game with the computers until you familiar with the character and possess the skills, and have the confident in yourself that you can play with your friends.

You can always look into compliments to further boost up your confident.

Another good example is going after the girl you like. Initially we feel panic and nervous to approach the girl we like. But as a man, we have no choice and we force to action, perhaps by self or friend encouragement. We normally did it very badly for the 1st few times, due to our nervousness. But if we insist, learn from self and other mistakes, get a mentor, come out with some simple strategy and plan, and keep practicing it, we will finally build up our confident in it, not only approaching attractive female, but in everything, including building our wealth. And soon or later, it would be an easy job for you, just like driving a car.

In a nutshell, apart from self-confident, we also build up our confident by walking out of our comfortable zone by having a positive thinking, insisting our goal, take encouragement, and keep practicing it until we success and have that kind of confident build up in ourselves. This should be the most solid confident we should have in us.

After I typed a lot of craps from my thought, what do you think on how to build a person confident?

What is Going on with Malaysia Stock Market?

I sincerely apologize of no post update on last weekend, as I was on vacation for 3 days. Well, I should take my initiative to update it before I went on leave. Okay, this improvement will be done next time, I mean I'll try if time allows me to do so. ;)

I believe you have gain a lot of profits from the stock market, if you starting to invest since March 2009. We focus on Blue Chips and they are giving us good return every month. But, not for now anymore. have you notice what is happening now? Since 2 weeks back, you would see the top 10 volume companies are strange to you, or a very low share price company on the show. Why? It indicates the stock market has bullish until certain level that investors felt the fundamental companies share prices are already expensive. So they started to turn to invest in penny and PN17 stocks, perhaps for fast profit and lower cost per share.

KLCI index has been raised for more than 50% within 7 months, are you worry?

For your information, PN17 means Practice Note 17/2005 and is issued by Malaysia SEC, which indicates the company are in a financial distress situation.

Practice Note 17/2005 and is issued by Bursa Malaysia; relating to companies that are in financial distress. Companies that fall within the definition of PN17 will need to submit their proposal to the Approving Authority to restructure and revive the company in order to maintain the listing status. Recently, some PN17 companies are successfully uplifted by SEC, and they managed to attract huge investors and make them the top volume of the trading day.

Oilcorp is being fried and rumors saying it will be uplifting from PN17 category soon. Will you buy it?

Are you one of the investors investing into them? What a joke! These companies share price are not supported by the fundamental elements at all, or I can say that they are not making enough money to support their share prices. Since the volatility is so huge, if you are late a little bit, you may making a great loss! But from the look at it, they can make you a very quick and easy profit within a day! If you are lucky, you can get 100% return within a day. No kidding.

Yes, with such a temptation and hot cake, I've followed the best practice of one of my mentors, "wherever there is fish, we will go there to fish!", while another mentor of mine adviced those PN17 stocks are devils, don't go for it.

Okay, temptation is an issue for me. I've invested into two of them twice, without knowing anything about them. Pretty daring huh! And guess what, my daring and decision did not bring me any profit, and I encountered minor loss by cut loss early. See, thing is just simple but not that straight forward, else everyone would have make money from stock market, no? I would say it's the timing problem, and I applied the best practice to the wrong companies. It gave me a very good lesson.

We talk about investment with passive income and risk control here, not gamble and fast money.

As there is no one can predict the right timing to enter and exit every time, for those who already earn money from these companies, you are just lucky by enter at the right timing. If you don't agree so, congratulations, you should be a millionaire or perhaps billionaire by now.

So, what now? Say bye-bye to penny and PN17 stocks, and wait for mid-term correction to buy good fundamental companies with discounted price (if there is any). Have a nice weekend, folks!
