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!

Leverage With Margin Account???

Long long ago Uncle8888's friendly broker offered him promotional rate margin account so he could leverage up to make more money. But; he asked back his broker why he needed that margin account when he still had plenty of cash and CPFIS rotting. 

You tell me why I need one?


  1. No harm accepting it if maintaining such account is FOC right?
    Just like you got credit card not because your bank account got no money mah....

    1. Not same as CC.

      It is like you have war chest rotting and broker thinks you still need war chest++ to increase your positions.

      Why in the first place there is war chest rotting?

  2. If you ever did time in army, you'll know that those sh_t-heavy thousand rounds of ammo & grenades & missiles aren't "rotting". You may curse & swear when having to hump a few hundred klicks with those bastards. But when sh_t hits the fan, you wish you had carried more of those bastards. :) :)

    Anyway if you can get 2+% returns on your ammo while you wait, it still beats inflation.
