As from April 2013 my Journey in Investing is 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!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

The Opportunity Cost Of Market Timing As Koala/Panda Retail Investor in local SGX from 2010 to 2021 (12 yrs)

Counting the opportunity cost as market timer after kena badly hurt in GFC 2008 Big Bear! 

LP also shrunk after that as there is no free lunch in the market!


  1. Hi Uncle8888,

    The most important point is that you've reached your destination. 😉

    I won't be surprised if Buffett has kept most of his earned cash in cash over the last 15 years (apart from buy-and-hold Berkshire stock that he had bought in past decades).

    With the size of his portfolio, he can live like royalty (if he wants) with just 1% CAGR.

    Those that haven't accumulated enough on the other hand ...

    That's where leverage comes in! 🤣

  2. Thanks for waking some of us up.

    Some of us perhaps have reached the state to practice "知 足 者 常 乐"

    Greed knows no bound.

    And anything happened :-

  3. Besides, i believe & adopted in Market Cycle Investing For Life after coming across reading a book from NLB b4 i started in 1987/88.

    Because to me the stock market is really like that till this day.

    Now stock markets seems changing because of Quando, Quando, Quando.

    Stupid me.

    Should be QE, QE. QE until maybe Bit Coins take over?

    Or Gold, anyone?
