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!

Can I use CPF Investment to trade???

Can I use CPF Investment to trade?

Yes, you could!

Our “XXXX” can help you to pinpoint which company to trade in and when to get out too. We do conduct previews almost weekly, do email to XXXX to find out more.

Hmm ... Walau! Early morning read this snake oil financial advice to grow CPFIS fund by trading in and out. Chun bo?

FACT: If you are already so successfully in trading your cash fund; then your CPFIS should be treated as your bonds as assets allocation and only switch bonds to equities during stock market crashes when there is higher opportunities of higher return on invested capital.

BTW.  Here is ....

Real CPF Member. Real Net CPFIS Refund!

Net negative CPFIS Refund means ALL invested capital has been returned to CPF OA!

One thing is clear!

Uncle8888 didn't trade CPF investment in and out. He invested!

    1. To learn real investing lessons on the ground, it is better to use cash which is of lower interest rate to beat that 2.5% rather using 2.5% to beat 2.5%. :-)

    2. Thanks Uncle8888 for your super good advice! Yeah, why risk the no-risk 2.5% when we cannot be 100% sure whether the investment from cpfis can beat it.
