After a few years in investing, many retail investors will have read enough, hear enough, see enough and know enough what to do with their capital.
But few of them actually do what they know.
Knowing is not enough?
Tell me how many of them actuallycommitthemselves to written investment strategies, plan, short-term goals e.g. Yearly; and long-term goals e.g. 10-Year and watch over them diligently so they can revise their investment strategies to meet their long-term goals when their short-term goals seem at risks of meeting their long-term goals and objectives.
Some may think that keeping records of their investment is the same as tracking and measuring their investment performance.
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
