WHY will pple lose money in penny stocks ?
bcos it is always syndicated to spike up in a very steep inverted V shape. it means good times is short ( like love making ) n never last over 3-5 days n end up down all the way n days.....
Once u decided to cut, it is edi down at least 15%.
Certainly not feasible to bet on pennies.
It is good to made a commitment to avoid completely stocks priced below rm 1.20, unless it has genuine low single digit PE ratio. Do remind ourselves always n we will prosper in stocks together ever laughter. 1st confidence must come from good feel of FA, then TA shall works its way up...
Every Time there is a sell-off in equities n DOW component stocks, the foc financial networks will sound so “panicky” n noisy. It is good to learn a little bit of history lesson on “market corrections”. Corrections are a normal feature of the stock market, and they said is healthy for the market's future wellbeing.
Please be reminded of their frequency. Check out these stats on how frequently mkt corrections occur on average:
1. - 5% market corrections: 3x per year. 2. - 10% market corrections: Once per year. 3. - 20% market corrections: Once every 3.5 years. 4. - 2.5% market corrections: almost every month.
How To Time It exactly when DOW is changing course ?
[4/8/2014 10:54:43 AM]
Dow's downward threshold level from its recent highest pt is - 450 pt. At this level, the crossroad is established in 2 ways : i. If it is profit taking, then it is best time to buy for continued uptrend or ii. Best time to short, if it is going into 5-10% correction or more.
I believed we r in option i.

DOW closed lower n more than the critical -450 pts from its peak. This is very bearish sign. Tomorrow's mkt could be at the real crossroad. If it gaps down n stays weak even till 12 noon, hell will break loose. PureBear looks like is edi entering the very door step. Be decisive to Do n act whatever is necessary to contain all financial risk.

The really good ones have made all the big money. What direction r they going to take next ? [4/11/2014 2:45:49 PM] Lull before the storm is approaching quick sand condition. After they sell enough, somebody is going to pull the rug thus creating an unpleasant news to scare the shit out of everybody.
Let's read carefully what Mitch Zacks has to offer. Mitch wrote a weekly column for the Chicago Sun-Times and has published two books on quantitative investment strategies. He has a B.A. in Economics from Yale University and an M.B.A. in Analytic Finance from the University of Chicago.
If there is one thing markets hate more than anything is uncertainty and change. With Ben Bernanke being replaced as Fed Chair by Janet Yellen, the markets are going to have to digest a little bit of both. Although, it’s not exactly like Janet Yellen is unknown. She has been an active policymaker for a dozen years and for decades taught economics at the University of California, Berkeley, but you never know how sitting in that all important position will affect their policy decisions.
Yellen’s First Test
Yellen faced her first major test this past week when she testified for the first time in front of Congress. Markets were waiting to see how she would handle herself as she faced a barrage of pointed questions from critical U.S. Lawmakers about the Fed’s unprecedented efforts to stimulate the economy and its oversight of banks.
Most likely due to her years of experience, she was able to remain calm under pressure and handle even the toughest of questions in a measured tone that the market liked, as the S&P 500 rallied after the testimony. I believe the reason the market reacted favorably was because it seems like there will be very little disruption from Bernanke’s policy. She showed that she will remain flexible when it comes to tapering QE3 and the decision on keeping the short rate near zero, where it currently sits. Again, the markets hate uncertainty and based on her testimony, it seems like she will keep that uncertainty to a minimum.
When Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-New York) pressed her with her with questions about what it would take to cause her to consider pausing the tapering process, Yellen answered the question directly and essentially said the Fed would adjust as needed. This exchange showed she is not just going to stick to a set tapering schedule, but decisions will be data dependent. Nothing is set in stone. However, she did say tapering would remain intact for the time being and wasn’t too concerned about recent weak data on employment. I too am not yet concerned about the recent weak growth in jobs. It’s only two months of data and the overall trend in the long-term is still positive.
Yellen was immediately put on the spot when House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling challenged the Fed's wide departure from a decades-old monetary policy rule of thumb that Yellen once called the mark of a "sensible" central bank. He asked “So that begs the question today, using your words, are you a sensible central banker, and if not, when will you become one?" Her reply: "Congressman, I believe that I am a sensible central banker,” showing that she won’t be rattled by Congress, causing her to make decisions based on politics, rather than on economic data.
In an exchange I found particularly interesting, she was asked repeatedly if the Fed was “enabling” government deficits with its massive bond-buying program, QE3. Again she was firm in the face of the grilling, answering the question in what I felt was a sensible way. “I don't think it would be helpful, either in terms of achieving the objectives that Congress has assigned to us or in terms of Congress' deficit reduction efforts, for us to purposely raise interest rates in order to weaken the economy," she said. “The likely impact of that weaker economy would be larger deficits.”
The Ongoing Emerging Markets Problem
While Yellen made it clear she understands that U.S. fortunes are now intertwined with the global economy, she said the U.S. economy is the Fed’s primary mandate. She said emerging economies don’t pose a serious risk to the U.S. economy right now, then stated the Fed is “monitoring” the situation closely.
The confluence of events in Turkey, Argentina and Ukraine created a panic and the emerging markets experienced significant correction. However, this is different from the 1990s. Most Emerging markets have higher international reserves and lower debt and thus higher policy power. Fed tapering has created a sense of uncertainty but it was somewhat expected and investors have already rebalanced. To some extent, investors are also asking for structural reforms in many of these emerging countries.
Emerging markets have been getting hammered with currency issues and high debt levels. Some of this could be caused by the fact that the tapering process is still intact, which will eventually lead to higher interest rates and money to move out of emerging markets and into safer, higher yielding investments. Yellen confirmed that, for the time being, tapering will remain intact which will put added pressure on emerging markets.
The issues surrounding emerging markets, while I believe are likely overblown, did add fuel to a pullback in stocks that ended on February 3rd. The S&P 500 dropped almost 7% in a short amount of time, but has since rebounded and is almost back to where it started the year. While the situation remains fluid, at this time I agree with Yellen and don’t believe emerging markets will derail the global economic recovery that is underway in most of the developed world.
Putting it All Together
There is an argument that has been called the “Curse of the New Fed Chair,” in which some argue the markets gets more volatile when a new Fed Chair takes over the position as investors grapple with the uncertainty of the new regime. This may have also played a part in the recent pull back we have since bounced back from. But overall, I expect Yellen to be pretty much like Bernanke and expect her to continue the tapering process in a controlled, measured pace. So, as far as uncertainty goes, I believe a lot of that was taken away after her first appearance as Fed Chair in front of Congress. This year may be more volatile than last and we probably won’t see the same huge returns from stocks that we saw in 2013, but this bull market has plenty of fuel left. n What's on offer here ?
WISHING ALL A HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR & GONG XI FA CAI TO A VIBRANT STOCK MARKET AHEAD........ Ever wonder how some people seem to be able to make money in the market no matter what?
Why some people are successful enough where they can trade for a living? For some, it seems like a dream, akin to fantasizing about being in the movies or winning the lotto. But for others, it's not a dream. It's what they do. And there are way more people doing it than there are famous actors or lottery winners. But it didn't just happen overnight. It took hard work and dedication. But for most, it was likely a labor of love. What's interesting is that, in most fields where people have reached a high level of success, you'll find that it doesn't necessarily take extraordinary smarts or some ultra-special talent to make it. It's really just about doing things that have proven to work and then doing them over and over again. The key is knowing what works. But you don't need to know everything that works. Just some things that work. (And at the same time, stop doing things that don't work.) So what can work ? Ans: BUY AT last purebear of ALL TIME/NEW HIGH of GroWinG stocks. n what's GroWinG stocks ? Ans: ALL TIME/NEW HIGH n What's on offer here ?
Simply because they r all either greater fools or still calling themselves smart. Why not upgrade yourself to a fool like me n we can make money together. We r in the same exact endless 'financial war'. Move quickly to the same strategy, join forces n we will confidently make big money together forever ever laughter again...
About this time every year, mkt players and investors begin to talk about the phenomenon known as the January Effect. The theory says that investors will sell stocks in December for tax purposes or money managers will sell stocks at the end of the year as a kind of window dressing to show they are doing something. These same investors will then start buying stocks again in January, causing January to be positive for stocks. It also says if January is a positive month, the year will be a positive one for stocks. However, no month, week or day has any bearing on what will happen during the next day, week or month. There have been many times when January has been a down month for stocks but the year finished in positive territory. The January Effect is not a sound investment strategy. Some investors do not believe that the time of the year has nothing to do with stock returns. They will tell you the mkt has predictable patterns depending on where we are on the calendar. A very common saying in investing is “Sell in May and go away.” Meaning, you sell your stocks and stay in cash during the summer months and get back in the market in the Fall. Again, some years this might work, other years it will not. Take this year for example. If you had sold in May and gone away, you would have missed out on a lot of gains seen during the summer months n for the rest of the year.
Clearly “sell in May and go away” does not always work as evidenced by mkt returns this past May. The index was up nicely in May. Granted this is just one year, but nevertheless, a rhyme is not an investment strategy and the data bears this out. These are research data I read some where. It says May through October are considered bad months in the stock market. Since 1950, the S&P 500 has an average return of 0.20% in May. Not much to write home about. The return for June is -0.10%, which is essentially flat. But in July, the average return jumps up to 0.90%. Clearly July is not a month to miss out on, which you would if you sold in May. August is almost completely flat at -0.04%. Finally, in September, the worst month, the return is -0.60%. Following a sell in May strategy is simply a crude form of market timing. Seasonal investing does not work. One month has no bearing on what will happen the next month. The market does not care that it is May or any month for that matter. Some years these types of things might work, but some years they will not. The best way to invest is to look at fundamentals and decide using stock charts to determine where the economy and mkt are headed in the long run. Always aim and know how to spot the greatest winning stocks. Unless you feel we have reached the peak of the mkt or the high point in the economic cycle, it is best to just stay invested no matter what time of the year it is. Importantly, ask yourself whether the stocks you are holding now do have the potential and character of a typical great high flying stocks of the country...

Truly this is a labor of love for me as I enjoy sharing my sincere advice on the stock market, hoping to empower n improve your financial well-being. I should know best. Do not do it alone in the stock market, as we face the same market together everyday with differing results. I channel all my faculty in search of the greatest winning stocks in the cycle. n they r few. My KPI showed I did successfully identified n spotted some really great ones. Take advantage of these n never to reject them 1st. just because of me. Missing them is truly missing the jewel of the country. There can't be that many great stocks coming along. Good Luck n Warm Regards Always... http://klse.i3investor.com/servlets/cube/post/purebull.jsp
MKT looks very toppish.
Just look into the week charts/picture n u will know mkt has matured.
All the great winners have edi moved up to their sky highs n starting to bend/give way.
Many other weak stocks do not seem to move much but r actually up to
or near their last round highs = about double top picture.
the only stocks look ok r TENAGA n the palm oil CI stocks due to slight strengthening of the CPO prices lately.
So mkt is very fair. Whether it is good stocks or bad , all have gone up in prices but at differing rates.

Might have to SELL all n sell into strength if there is...
It's long school holiday this time of the year again. High rollers might have edi pocketed n
r off for a nice vacation with their love ones.
YINSON, my favorite stock. Why must u choose to come so late ?
Mkt safe period is about nearing over.
Best to always refer to the week charts. It shows a clear picture of where your stocks is n where it is going now. Before u buy any stock, look at it. It will tell how much it has gone up n roughly how much is left for u to bet on. If u miss the chance, let it miss. Do not ever miss the next chance.
With fewer sticks, week chart is an appropriate compass to investment.

SUPERMX, in some at 248 n some support parked at 247. This 'aqua' stock needs your full support near its support line at 245.
It is much more profitable than KOSSAN.
At KOSSAN's mkt cap it has the potential to scale up to 329.
Have a way to know the exact point of take off in the last cycle to 284. That's the all important resistance turned support level = #. n when the idiotic fun_ sells down to that level, taruk sama dia !
i. Forget Everything And Ran. ii. Face Everything And Rise.
The choice is yours. This is food for thought from RATAN TATA, the Indian Billionaire.
KLCI is being hit by 'financial accident' led by attack on our Ringgit. In all accidents there r sure people coming to help. Yet to see people offer to help in this 'financial accident', more so from the opposition. It is so ironic that they r running down our country n economy in times like this n causing many to dump away their stocks for cheap.
Yes, players in KLSE over reacted in throwing away all the stocks on the cheap. Too fearful of the memories of 97-98 currency crisis being recalled n refreshed by the free news n essays on the net. DOW's current weakness seems scary. S&P 500 is in normal profit taking activities. Nasdaq looks like nothing bad is about to happen. What r these indices telling us n which index to follow now ? 07-09 subprime crisis was allowed to happen with the whole purpose of killing the demand of # 1 USD enemy, EURO$. This time around there seems no compelling motive for FED, maybe a time to strengthen the USD on a measured pace across the board. The side effect of safeguarding the USD caused the US mkt to crash miserably to Mar 09. It is like the mkt had dropped into a big deep drain. To bring the mkt up, FED has to implement 3 successive GE 1, 2, 3. In so doing, FED has spent so much money to bring the mkt up n running. Do u think FED will let it drop into the drain again ?
It should be a time US wants to make back all the money in the world. n the 1st move is to strengthen the USD over time. With stronger currency, US can import more for the same money. The shining USD is now attracting demand by traders n the return of USD as the main international currency for business n trade ever again... US stock mkt culture is based solely on daily news flow. All the reporters n journalists of free internet news portals r controlled n salaried by the prominent hedge funds. Either way, they will dramatized the news to the easy benefit of the funds. And lots of highly educated readers with good englan always r being taken to the 'cleaners' following those free news essays. Importantly, all of us have to make a stand whether these r noises or a real start of new damaging world crisis event capable of leading to bankruptcy of some PLC in wall street. Sometimes n at times like this, we must think it is not that easy to crash a mkt !
