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!

Strengthening War Chest From Our Investment Portfolio??? (2)

Read? Strengthening War Chest From Our Investment Portfolio???

Read? Switching Horses Is Not Same As Cut Losses Into Cash???

3M's - The Mind and Money Management

Many bloggers have talked about it over and over again.

Read? Loss aversion

So loss aversion will lead us to this feeling ...

It is better to REGRET not making more than to feel SORRY for losing our hard earned money.

Naturally; it will fit nicely into our loss aversion behaviour. Right?

How do we want to strengthen our war chest at the next market cycle?

Positively by making hay while Sun shines or negatively by pulling out weeds from our garden.


Cost Plus by making hay while Sun shines or Cost Minus by pulling out weeds from our garden.

Uncle, how ah?

Should I bite bullet and cut losses?

How do you feel?

Same same?



  1. Do you feel stressful when your stock price run up after you have sold to strength your war chest to prepare for the next market cycle?

  2. Hi bro8888,

    I think we should only pull out weeds when we have no more hay. Sometimes, weed can become hay, and if we have nothing better to do with the weed that is pulled out, pull out for what? LOL

  3. what is bite bullet? I thought it is bite teeth?

    In volatile market better to have 50/50. Everything in moderation.

    If u do not pull out, wait business is so bad that u may loose ur land (job) then u have no more hay...

    I am lucky to pull out quite a lot of hay and weed based on my post on 22 Aug.. scary!!! just before the black Monday.
