The speaker that shared his thoughts with us was a trader who has more than 20 years of trading experience, Wong Kon How. I have shared below on the insights gleaned from his seminar with us. Feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments section!

Investors can be Classified into 4 Quadrants



(i) Short Term Investor

– 2 days to 3 months 
– Derivatives and consider Stocks

(ii) Short Term Trader

– Intra-day 
– Derivatives e.g CFD

(iii) Long Term Investor

– 3 years or more 
– Stocks and Property

(iv) Long Term Trader 

– 3 months to 3 years 
– Stocks and can consider Derivatives

We can strive to achieve all 4 quadrants. An individual does not necessarily have to fit into only 1 quadrant.

– Brent Crude Index and Keppel Corp

Insider Trading

Reversal to Bull
– Born on pessimism. Grow on skepticism. Mature on optimism. Die of Euphoria.

Reversal to Bear 
– Start with Greed. Followed by Confusion. Sold on Fear. End with Hopelessness.

Exit – How to take Profit

– Manage your profit – take the “body of a fish” (along the way) because if we don’t know exactly how high or low the stock will go
