Seriously, how many average retail investors fully understand the big difference between 2.6% Compound Interests payable on HDB housing loan and Compound Returns on stock investment.

To be able to beat that 2.6% Compound Interests payable on HDB housing loan with Compound Returns on stock investment will require you to stay fully re-invested most of the time across several stock market cycles of bulls and bears.
