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!

The stock market is weird. (2)

One buys, another one sells, someone waits and all three think that they are smart.

Read? The stock market is weird.

We can really witness such weird behavior in investing/trading forums!

Go and see for yourself. LOL!

  2. In order for someone to buy, someone else must sell to him. There must be disagreement to create a transaction. The one thing that both parties agree on is the price. That's what makes a market.

    It's the same thing outside the market. Many of us have different opinions on the same issue but all of us think we're right and others are wrong:)

  3. As my guru likes to say, "You don’t trade the markets; you only trade your beliefs about the markets." :)

  4. Some may be just doing rebalancing & quite neutral i.e. they have confidence that the asset will have a higher price tag in 5 years or 10 years, but they also know that there will be volatility (maybe a lot) between now & then.

    And they are just sticking to pre-defined asset allocation or position sizing that suits their risk appetite (often based on past bear market experience LOL).

    This should be the best approach with our own data points as back testing!
