Kiasu or Kiasi or his Mind and Money Management? Short-term trading and long-term investing with his initial capital since Jan 2000 and no more adding of capital since then. It is already accumulated saving since Aug 1977 when he started working after NS. He has thought it very carefully. Enough is enough over the initial few years of investing in the stock market. There is no need to inject more saving into his investing capital to try make more money in the stock market. Being single household income and in his 40s; by limiting his risk exposure to the stock market is far more important than trying to "make" more money in the stock market. He has been applying this risk and money management till today. His position sizing is limited to maximum 10% of his investing CAPITAL since Jan 2000. In this way; his investment portfolio can grow and diversity; but his risk exposure to any stock is consistent across market cycles. When he has this sense of enough is Enough; Why leverage up? Capital is enough!. Return is enough! Why ask more? Feeling of enough is never the same for many of us. How many can understand this investing mind? Kiasu and Kiasi?
