    btw, i noticed not all blue chips are down exp.. F&N being collected by foreign banks like JPM, ML etc.. why are they collecting ? anyway.. it is a good sign.
    Sell down gives opportunities for investors to pick quality stocks at lelong prices.

    It's called switching to a more defensive position.

    STI rallied 52 points today. Up and down created so much trading opportunities. My friend just made $1,000 today. Oh man, making $1,000 in a single day is like so easy.

    Exactly, I always find it so amazing that people never learn from other's mistakes. Instead of learning to invest, people rather take the step of speculating which is akin to gambling. Once they get hooked, they will trade regardless of market conditions, and when greed kicks in, they will always end up loosing more than they made. For me, it is quite amusing to see these people come and go. Those speculators who are left standing at the end of the day either have deep pockets or more importantly are disciplined in their trading methodology. I believe that the majority of speculators will never fall into these two categories.

    Be discipline in trading and faithful to your targets, know your charts technicals and fundamentals well. Always have a backup plan to average down or take hold opportunities.

    Gambling on chance like technical rebound is playing with hell fire. Do not adopt that punt methods from your fren. Never never try that.

    Two types of people in the mkt; speculator and investor. Don't be one and think you are the other.

    No, he is not a speculator. He knows his stuff well. He has done his homework. He is also a prudent person, so no punting, etc.

    What he said to me was that market went down 100++ points 2 days ago, but subsequently rallied 52 and 27 points, etc. This proves what? He picked up those good quality stocks at cheap prices.

    It is all about expectation and sentiment. Buy those quality stocks that sold down due to market panic selling and not fundamental changes.

    Now it is all about talks/news. Therefore, it is all depend on whether you are an optimist or pessimist.

    Finally, it doesn't matter what other people think, etc. The most important thing is whether you make cash. Cash is King!

    Happy trading.

    If people want to speculate, they must overcome their psychological barriers such as when to cut losses and when to sell to take profits.

    I have seen rich men evolved and disappeared as a result of market changes.

    I am also amazed by how people got influenced by analysts, fund managers by buying and selling their stocks.

    Analysts and Fund Managers are quite good in producing "news".
