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!

What was I thinking and feeling in Mar 2009 Bear market low? (3)

Just For Thinking ...

Read? What was I thinking and feeling in Mar 2009 Bear market low? (2)

Did you read this ad in the newspaper?

"Profits of  US$6,179 .....   Thanks GURUxxxx, I can now use your methods to achieve financial freedom."

Yes. It is most likely to be true; but for how long??? It is not that moment or period that counts. It is sustainability and consistency over market cycles that really define your success in investing or trading.

Back to what I was thinking from Mar 2009 to early 2010 ...

Honeymoon in the stock market

From Mar 2009 onwards till early 2010; it is the honeymoon period in the stock market where newBEEs can easily find Cheese and thinking that they can now use their new found knowledge and skills in trading or investing to achieve financial freedom.

This is what I witnessed and even amazed when one newBEE was making really high returns from the stock market by hopping here and there among the wild flowers looking for Cheese. But once the honeymoon was over. The truth is that the newBEE is probably like ...

The stock market is always moving the Cheese. One must continuously adapt their knowledge and skills to find the moving Cheese. Our success in finding Cheese can only be determined after at least one market cycle Bull-Bear-Bull or Bear-Bull-Bear or better using two cycles.

Don't ever mistaken your honeymoon as your new Found to financial freedom!
