What Uncle8888 knew from his encounters with many other retail investors on their large losses and become extremely difficult to recover from such large losses is that they have been averaging down their losses till no return!
That is very bad portfolio management and risk control!
Uncle8888 as fisherman and no matter how careful he can be; but at some moment of complacency and carelessness he has been stung by sting-ray, catfish and scorpion fish. Luckily, he was not bitten by sea-snake; otherwise, he wouldn't be around to blog!
I am 60+ yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has retired @ 60 on 30 Sep 2016.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 and now becoming full-time retail investor. So I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I have two sons and one daughter; two working adult children and the youngest son is currently in his 1st year SUTD.
I am currently executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038
