We know that most retail traders will tend to limit their trading account size as part of risk management; but most retail investors will not limit their investing account size; whenever they have spare money from their saving they will to continue to pump in more and more money to grow their portfolio.
But, when Mr. Market turns against them, they will face fairly large real or paper losses through their past investing and re-investing activities in bigger portfolio unlike most retail traders who are focusing on Entries/Exits.
Life of retail investor is sweet and sour! Not exactly nice at this moment!
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.
