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!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

Timing Is Everything. Yes?

 Read? Timing Is Everything. No?

Really true even in investment training space. Timing is everything and when timing turned sour or bad then trouble begins!

Those days when Uncle8888 started serious attentions into into Market - Option trading for passive income was so hot! Big option trading booths especially Freely School Of Options Trading at investment seminars giving out door gifts at the main entrance. Shiok!

Actually; Uncle8888 likes to attend these free previews if they provide free makan. Why not when he has plenty of free time and no additional transport cost to these venues as he is on monthly pass.

Timing is everything even in investment training space. 

Right timing to sell hot courses. 

From option trading to value/growth investing, passive income/from S-REITs, not enough capital to build retirement income from S-REITs? Don't worry. Just leverage up!

Then S-Reits to Crypto and soon back to pivoting to growth investing?

Timing Is Everything. Yes or No?


  1. Hi CW8888, after more than 10 years in SG investment internet space, i have already figured out who are the credible peoples that are worth my attention. Some “experts” are just dubious and good for entertainment. Like investment, reputation must pass long term test.
    I have never attended or paid for courses. Blog like yours and the selfless comments from your fellow investors help me to be a better long term investor. I learn from crash got sound - steal from SMOL, painful but grateful .

  2. CW,

    That's cute what you did with the blog post heading!

    Like that also can!?

    Makes sense. We are opposite sides of the SAME coin.


  3. One more thing. It cringed me to see how trainees went belly up on Reits leverage strategy but trainer continues to live another day. Look under the iceberg esp the family background. Training is just entertainment to trainer, at best a hobby or science project.

    1. Leveraging and de-leveraging is master at market timing. Just look at When Genius Failed for evidence.

  4. Uncle8888,

    Timing is everything? Maybe.

    It's a something, but not the only thing. ;)

    Lol, trainer a bit off ... the time for growth training was 2 years ago. Hopefully his timing will be better than for cryptos.

    But I agree that Q4 of this year will be good timing for growth stocks. Growth has become the new value.

    That being said, there are so-called growth stocks that shouldn't be touched at all, except for trading or for fun.

    1. So there is market timing for growth, value and income investing and sometime for fun too. Timing the market is for everyone. LoL!

  5. Since i had read a book on market-cycle-investing-for-life on earlier than 1987 years, i don't know how to otherwise.

    What works for me may not works for you; if not market will never moves at all.


  6. It is hard for a financial trainer to be of value to his students if he practises market timing on what to teach.
    It takes time to be an expert on a topic. If the trainer teaches a hot topic which he only recently pick up, the students are better off self-learning using online content created by more experienced experts. This is more effective and cheaper (even free of charge).
