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!

Recording Your Investment Or Stock Transactions Using MS Excel Worksheet Made You A Precision Retail Investors???

Just that MS Excel Worksheet shows value in various formats of presentation up to XXXX decimal points. 

It is just a worksheet and nothing more!

Just because of few pokers out there  in the cyber world poking some fun at these decimal places. 

Why are we are avoiding using MS Excel as CONVENIENT form or media for recording and tracking stock transaction either for performance review or future learning points?

By showing two decimal places; it DOESN'T make one a precision investor. Precision retail investors are those spend lots of time analyzing at finer details!

Anyone can turn on two decimal places with clicks; but not anyone can spend lots of time and effort on detailed analysis before execution.

See the difference!



  1. temperament,

    MS Excel ;)

    Notice CW's latest post on how he got $1 million in CPF?

    He rounded it up and decided not to use 2 decimal places...

    Snigger, singger.

  2. I`m Charlie Bean and I live in Toronto Canada. I needed a loan to buy a house and I searched for a mortgage loan from all banks and I was denied and I loss hope of having my own house until I came across a post just as you reading my post now. I saw a post about a Financial Service Company who gives loan at 2% interest so I applied in STEAKLEY FINANCIAL SERVICES using their email steakleyfinancialservices@yahoo.com. And my loan was granted it was like a dream but was true and now am a owner of a house in Toronto and am paying the mortgage loan with no stress and I also requested if I can be granted a business loan and I was also granted. Now am living a happy life, I will advice you if you have an financial problems and you need money to settle it so you can pay with no stress just contact Steakley Financial Service at their email Steakleyfinancialservices@yahoo.com.

  3. Hoho .... when you got 7 digits on the left of the decimal point, you can ignore those on the right! :)

    For some people, $100K is a rounding error for their personal portfolios. LOL!!

  4. Spur,

    Exactly ;)

    Its also called - not sweating over the small stuffs...
