Young Noob in his mid 20s and started trading/investing in year 2006. He got himself educated in both TA and FA. He didn't just read books on TA; he also paid course fee to attend training by professional and graduated from School of ChartWhatEverWin.
He also mixed up around with those like-minded in forums and cboxes.
Do you need to guess what happened to his investment portfolio by Mar 2009?
Uncle8888 last heard from him that he has learned to stay out of market and quietly building up his new War Chest for the next Bear-Bull cycle.
Auntie Noob in her mid 30s came in 2009 to ask one question:
"Can we make money in the stock market?"
The answer to her is Why not?
She CAME, HEARD IT, SAW IT and BELIEVE IT!
Auntie Noob doesn't really get herself educated much on TA or FA.
Simple TA charting is still okay for her. She could understand.
Those cheem cheem TA indicators she couldn't understand. She just stayed away from them.
She even told Uncel8888 that she doesn't bother herself with FA and reading those pages of financial statements made her "headache."
In short, she bochap!
She just played round after round from 2009 to end 2011? or mid 2012? (if Uncle8888 remembered it correctly) on market's famous names like Semb Corp, Semb Marine, Keppel Corp, Capitaland, etc collecting round after round of profits and dividends; and smiling to the bank.
Her highest winning profits came fromher 18 Rounds in Keppel Corp!
Auntie Noob may be noob in stock market but not noob in instinct!
Auntie Noob has the natural instinct as fisherman knowing that low tide you can't do fishing. She has been staying out of the stock market with 9X% cash as War Chest for the next Bear-Bull cycle.
