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!

Timing the Market???

One Person said that one of five common mistakes stock investors made is Timing the market.

Chun bo???

For long only retail investors, are you still waiting for Bear market to become rich in stocks?

Mistake meh!!!

Don't anyhow say!!!


  1. Hi CW,

    I think no one, even the regular and fully vested school, simply buy on the full moon...

    But I think he meant, when you find something cheap and good, just buy, no need to wait and think:" can get cheaper a not"

    But if not cheap, waiting is not timing the market

  2. CW8888 : The fighting of "Timing The Market" vs "Time In The Market" school of thought? ;-)

    1. No fighting in me.

      I practise both school of thought through long-term investing and short-term trading. LOL!

    2. CW,

      Confirm 1 person never read your Masthead.


    3. In my own personal view,

      timing your purchase and sales; and also be a little bit greedy are okay.

      but take note of missed opportunities; and also being overly greedy which can be your bad blind spots.

      Penny wise pound foolish indeed.

  3. 3M's : Method, Mind and Money Management.

    Timing the Market Not by method but through Money Management.

    Buy slowly by batches and by intervals.

    Sell slowly by batches and by intervals.

    No perfect timing but still need to Time the Market. No?
