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!

Trading for Income or Active Investing for Wealth? (2)

Read? Trading for Income or Active Investing for Wealth?

Having to Be Right

As a trader, you have to be right most of the time in the future in order to make money from trading and stop losing your trading capital.  Past performance is no gurantee of future trading success.

But, as a long-term investor, once we have been right, we will recover our investing capital over time through dividends. Past performance is an indication of future cash flow.

See the difference in having to be right!

Picking the right stock to be right is tough and having to be right most of the time is even tougher.
