HI Riz. I have visited the `london stock exchange and also attend a few seminars of both investors and traders. I have studied hard many of the methods that really make a good trader, but I am not a trader myself in that sense. I am not a successful investor even, not yet! but what I am is a disciplined investor, allowing my total portfolio to increase around 3% per month on average.
There are far and few great traders around. They have constant attention to their screens, and have direct market access to order books. They have vip accounts with the minimal trading frees, and fast executions. They go long and short... the greatest traders recognise a stock worth shorting, even when the majority are buying in long. They are unemotional to the point they won't even get excited by any big wins.
The successful trader is shrewd, extremely disciplined and are not distracted by bulletin boards. They are almost stealthed in what they do. They keep the sector or industry they trade in small but know absolutely everything about their chosen sector/industry. They have studied maybe 5 - 10 constant high volume shares..nothing else. They study the way the share price moves each day. They overlap fundamentals with their own unique technical analysis trading styles. They do not really share there trading secrets either.
I have met only one successful trader and in real life (Not Robbie Burns). Which is not surprising since only 2% of all traders make any money.
Honestly, I thought using Asian language (or English as my 42nd Lnaguage), I may have offended you (due to misinterprtation), Silly me I did not come back to ask if i had offended you but you got bigger heart to ask for apology.
Knowing now you are a grandad, t may be not by age but surely by status. Hence, in my culture , as you may know, poeple with higher status/title do not apologise over trivials. So please take it back, you owe me nothing. You are better person by heart and nature. I guess you are a horse/ox in chinease astrolgoy.
As I said on this/other board. I am full time worker with extented network, so i am the weakest link on this and five other boards. I do not read or respeond regularly, hence miss clues, but just chip in with the latest posts. Baaki Sab kher hai. :-D
Shoki , you are such a smooth talker , nice to hear from you , actually i owe you an apology , i meant to come back to you on FGP the other day when you messaged me, but i had to go out at the time and forgot when i came back , sorry mate :-)
Miss G, There is not a such thing 'Purple , yellow or blue fire in Chinease Zodiac '. But Fire only, and knowing you as much i do via your post, you do relate to fire element i.e Smart, Clever, diplomatic, law abiding but firm. Nice to know you. :-D
Hi Miss G, Regardless of weather or market, you keep your sense of humour intact, which is good for you and your health. Nice to learn that you have interest in Zodiac as well. What element of sheep are you?. Carefull, if you do not want to tell your age !I! . Top of my head it is auspicious year for sheep (my daughter is sheep), Me as a Ox is clashing with horse, not in a nasty way but on principles.
Read some of your post, nice to see your sanguine nature that comes with age and experience. :-D
I am a big fan of some very experienced investors here. So i always read what their posts and very good advice. I am a very big fan of Miss G and Mogie, as i think good solid advice. SALSAKID is the great trader and i do admire him and they are many more that i haven't mentioned.
Lucky for TCG shareholders you haven't got ericeric on here.
