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!

You Can't Predict. You Can Prepare - Updated on 25 Jul 2014

Read? You Can't Predict. You Can Prepare - Updated on 25 Jan 2014

Just about everything is cyclical.

Nothing goes in one direction forever.

Tree’s don’t grow to the sky. 

Few things go to zero.

Cycles always prevail eventually.

- Howard Marks

BTW, how are you preparing for it?

Uncle8888's Game Plan 2014


  1. Why is the capital deployment based on absolute number for sti?

    1. Fishing Uncle watches the level of sea tide to deploy big hook with big bait to catch big fish.

      Blue chips Uncle watches the level of STI to deploy capital to catch cheaper and blue-less chips.

      Habit of fisherman. The level of sea tide is not an exact science. Agar agar only. It is like marking where to start throwing hooks.

  2. Quote: Just about everything is cyclical...Nothing goes in one direction forever....???

    Inflation goes in one direction... up!
    Age goes in one direction... till we die.

    Yes, we can predict.... the sun will come out from the east tomorrow. LOL

  3. The only question now is WHEN? :)

    1. My last purchase of stock was in Feb 2013 and the correction never happen after that.

      Money stuck in bank rotting.


  4. Based on the lunar calender, can one tell when will be the lowest tide of the year? Scientifically possible or not?

    1. We use lunar calender date to check the tide. Tide is influenced by the Moon. Chun chun!

    2. Ha! Ha!
      If only it can be applied to the stock market, you the fisherman sure "HUAT AH".
      Maybe to some extend it can. When it 's a full moon that's when the dogs and wolfs howl and some people may be influenced by the moon too. Lunar - Lunatic.

  5. But whoever in the market long enough will understand bear will come out one day! :)

    1. If we believe in Joseph's Market Cycle. This Bull may end up in 2015 Q4 / Q1 2016. It is about 7 years since Mar 2009 Bear lowest.

    2. May be now is only 1/2 of the bull run! No crazy volume, no crazy new record high, no uncle and auntie talking about how much they win in the stock market, broker complaint business is bad. :) now is bull or bear?

  6. it seems only Singapore is a STALE BULL! Others are still charging.
