Uncle8888 doesn't fight Mr Market with both arms. He is one arm swordsman. Why need leveraged instrument in margin trading for shorting or leverage up for higher yield on own investing capital e.g. assets pledging to open overdraft trading with brokers. He doesn't have to polish his trading Craft for better Entries and Exits. He is Panda or Koala in the stock market; but his food is still not extinct yet! Knowing enough! Money is enough! Capital is enough! Risk is enough! Parroting Buffet .... it is insane to risk what you have and need in order to obtain what you don’t need.” Uncle8888 is already practicing it years ahead of his 2018 annual letter. :-) We take calculated risks and leverages to meet our objectives, wants or needs. It is like that! Right? Risk and Leverage are subjective. Knowing enough!
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
