I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed 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!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Stock investing not always a gamble

No safety net in trading futures, options or forex!!! - 2nd Revisit

Some financial instruments like options and futures are zero-sum game as for every winner there will be a counterpart who will lose the same amount.

Some people may think that stock investment is not a zero-sum game. Yes, it is true that it is not a zero-sum game as for every winner there will be a counterpart who may not lose the same amount.

But, stock investment is still about winning a loser game. If you don't believe me, go and poll your colleagues, friends and relatives. You don't be surprised that to find out that there are more losers than winners.

Let me know if your polling shows more winners than losers.

Stock market is not only winning a loser game and is also great wealth re-distributor. So be careful with your wealth in the stock market.

"The Stock market is a financial redistribution system. It takes money away from those who have no patience and gives it to those who have." - Warren Buffet
