As from April 2013 my Journey in Investing is to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

Am I Better Off With Trading or Buy&Hold?

Cheng asked:

"On hindsight, if you had held on to it from $1.37 to $2.65(not including divy and rights issue, excluding trading fees) will give you $193.43, which is 93% gains"

Let me do a review on Noble and Olam, the two most actively traded counters in 2009.

Let look at the charts of Realized and UnRealized P/L between Buy&Hold and Buy&Hold&Sell&Buy

Assuming I held on to Noble @ $0.91 and Olam @ $1.37 at Round 1.

After sensing that STI was not going to crash back to lthe level of Mar 09, I decided to leave behind some Noble at $0.96 and Olam at $1.68 to continue the commodities race with CIC and Temasek.
It is important not to left behind while the Bulls are charging up without you or the Bears stumbling down and you are fully on board.

I can see the difference!
