Bookfest @ Malaysia 2009

Dear readers,

I'm pleased to announced that there'll be a golden opportunity for us to meet and exchange investment ideas in Kuala Lumpur (KL) on the 29th August (Saturday) 6pm - 7pm at KLCC Convention Centre Hall 5, The Reading Room.

I remember during last year's Bookfest @ Malaysia 2008 I shared with the audience some investment knowledge. Not only did they learn how to analyse shares with financial ratios, they also learn how to read stock charts. Some ideas was shared during the "Question and Answer" session at the end of the event.


For this year's Bookfest, I would like to introduce my new book: "Fear and Greed" to my readers. I believe this book is especially helpful to investors as very often investors are swayed by emotion by buying greedily during the euphoria market and sell panicly when everyone was selling. Sometimes we trade without realising that we actually put in too much of our emotion into trading which may ended wiping out our investments! All these will be shared with you from a person who has more than 15 years of trading experience and has done extensive research on this topic.

I hope my readers will feel my sincerity in sharing my investment knowledge because obviously I write books are not for profit or fame, it's to help more people to acquire the right investment knowledge and to trade more successfully for themselves.

Until then, see you at KLCC Hall 5.

Are we out of the woods yet?

Many economists have started to criticise the trillion dollar fiscal stimulus programs by the Obama administration. Hasn’t the American learned from the Subprime crisis when it all started during the 2001-2002 recession, the Americans cut rates and boosted public spending. This brought a bubble in the housing sector which causes serious consequences to the rest of the world.

Now, with the current recession, the Americans is going to pump in trillion of dollars to boost its GDP. And the consequences? More debt and bigger bubble!

The Americans are not alone. Most of the governments around the world are increasing on their fiscal budgets and bailing out troubled banks to help steer their economies out of the wood so as to gain popular votes from the people. “China is back in bubble land,” warned the Financial Times. According to Bill Bonner, in the first six months of this year, Chinese banks lent more than $1 trillion, or about four times the rate of 2007. This loosening of monetary policy by the Chinese Central Bank is bound to add more trouble to the world in the future.

Why? Because no one would like to bite the bullet and let the economy suffers like the 1929 Great Depression. So let’s face the consequences when the next bubble blows up!
