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? (2) - Re-posted

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

When the market keeps falling to a certain point even some most experienced and seasoned retail veteran investors will cut losses and stay out of the market and hoping to buy back lower.

We can plan but when the moment arrived our balls may shrink faster than the market drop.

We need strategies to overcome the Fear.

What are your strategies in addition to your capital deployment plan?

The Mind part?


  1. True story:

    During 2009 low, one colleague asked me what to buy. I told him DBS now at $6.X and 8.x% yield can buy. He never buy as he was waiting for $6.

    If DBS dropped to $6. He would wait for $5. Right?

    1. CW,


      And when DBS went up instead to $8, he would wait for the pullback to $6.X you recommended.

      It's like in corporate life - superb planning; lousy execution :(

      Do more; plan less? (But... but schools taught differently...)
