Do not quote me, please

DOW is hitting new high ... and KLCI dropping? Why is there an inverse correlation here? Could it be due to the fear of 1MDB? Hmm ...

I have sold many ... and keeping to cash. The risk of profiting ... that we have to fore-go, at times. It is a holiday time ... today is the last of the schooling-day.

Ok ... why am I being pulled into a conversation in i3? Why la ... hmm ...

First and foremost, I need to mention it MANY of times ... I am a LEARNER. I am a novice(from newbie level, recently). I have told everyone that knew me in person ... that I was a newbie. Due to my strict definition of sifu/guru, I am far-far away from that respectable level. So, please do not quote me ... and putting titles to me, ok?

I am a non-believer in sifu-worshipping. Let me share a little from those I have learnt and many good trainers, traders I knew ... bloggers and forum-kaki.

I have too many new readers(mostly from i3?) who do not even know me, or bother to read my past posts. Ok ok ... I know I am too long-winded, didn't know how to summarize la. But, at least listen me up ... read about my past and my posts. I do not delete any of my post ... I posting these spontaneously ... I do not do editing and I do not even bother if anyone reading my posts!!

It is accidental ... that I am known as a blogger? It is just happened that I like blogging and happened that I am a KLSE trader? And happened that I like teaching ... so, happened that I have followers ... to learn from me, my cheap ah-pek way of trading?

Do you get me or STILL thinking I m twisting my words?

Check my post since 2008 ... when I was naïve and NEW in stock markets, lost so much of my small initial capital? Read my posts and see how I have grown to be a better trader ... simply because I am PERSISTANCE and worked hard on my quest to be a better trader. THINK of it this way ... I am an open book for you here to WATCH me grow ... and you may take my trading journey as a STORY which might inspire you to be a trader ... or learn from my posts, indirectly? Otherwise ... think again ... you may not read any of my posts, right?

Blogger : I am a blogger since ... 15 years ago. You got me there ... I blogged about my past relationships in a Canadian page, and many caring readers share their experiences in relationship and advice me back then. I blogged about chess ... as I played online chess(yahoo) in daily basis ... I blogged about bowling when I took up the game some 15 years ago ... how I got into the games and how I improved. I can play 200 games, do you believe me?


This is a score I recently played in one of the tournament ... after 5-6 years I didn't participate in any(busy with learning to trade!!) but unfortunately, I injured my knee. You may follow my personal life-stories in my facebook as I blah-blah everyday in my FB. haha ... and yes, I do not bother if you read, like it or not. It is my personal space.

It is not easy to understand WHY am I blogging everyday, right? I used to blog WITHOUT a miss since 2008 ... but 2-3 years ago ... I could not cope up with the pace, and got myself very emotional due to the un-wanted attention thrown to me. I DO NOT need followers, ok? So, many times ... (PLEASE read my previous posts la ... I said many of times leh) I said liao ... I am just blogging for MY OWN read pleasure ... and I will appreciate it if anyone feeling offended to NOT read my posts.

I do blog about my college ...Inti College Sabah(at Putatan) ... I blogged about my kids .... and Sinaran Institute. These were days way before I m in stock market!! I blogged about my keropok-biz ... I blogged about Mathematics ... about Liverpool(Rafa Bertinez back then) ... about my Sabahan friends ... and my emotions, my struggles ... and views. Hey, that is what a NATURAL bloggers will do ... we blog because we are bloggers, ok?

I do not blog about stock-markets because I want to show I am a sifu? Err ... excuse me, you get me very wrong here? Can I put it straight? I am a blogger BEFORE I came into trading la. That is why I can have so many things to write about ... and if you allowed me to be FREE to WRITE(nowadays ... less freedom due to preying eyes, and disgusted brain twisted my words) ... I could expose many things and put it in words WHAT I think ... blog-post is the way I express myself as I am an introvert. I repeat ... I am an introvert, a person who do things by MYSELF .... and prefer to be left alone!! Again ... your brain jumping into conclusion that I am not ... by not knowing me, by not reading my previous posts ... and judging me. It is your ways of seeing me ... nothing I would change myself to be looked good in your eyes, ok? I am NOT a sales-person ... so, I do not need to polish my words, to suit my audience. Old readers might see how I am growing ... to be a better trader(one day, I will) ... but new readers, help yourself with my 2000 plus posts, ok?

So ... you see, I am a blogger ... and I am NOT those blog to gain popularity .. so that they could do biz and be sales people, ok? I attended an internet marketing course, teaching people how to blog, why they should blog ... to PROFIT and EARN money, thru blogging?? I was like ... WHAT THE ... you mean, you don't blog for passion? What is wrong with this world la? Cannot do things because we love doing meh ... must always talk about money? But .. that is the FACT these days. People go into blogsphere simply to gain attention and profit!!

I do not even put google-adsense till a blogger(Edwin) taught me how and said I SHOULD. Haha ... but, hey ... even I do not have that, I will STILL blog, you see. Then ... some people want to put up some ads in my blog ... and I said ... no way, sorry ... this is a personal blog and I do not want to associate with any companies, ok? I want to be independent and able to blah-blah ... haha.

Ok ok ... where am I again? I am a blogger, whether u could understand WHAT a blogger do.

Teacher : I am a teacher ... I teach Math for past 25 years. I taught A-level Math, STPM ... SAM ... pre-U Math. And, yes ... I am very good in teaching Math because of PASSION. I live in-out my teaching of Math. I was passionate about Math since form 4. Again ... read my previous posts, I believe I wrote it somewhere ... repeated a few times, I think. I am not surprise if anyone could not understand PASSSSSION.

You mean, even tho you are not paid ... you will still teach? Yes ... that is how naïve and stupid I was. I was being used kaw-kaw by colleges(cant blame those principals la) as I was financially-idiot and wont even mind being used!! Haha ... how I have changed to protect myself now.

Do you know that a teacher is someone who TEACH? Think again ... someone who impart knowledge, someone who find the joy of seeing their students succeed and score? Helping those weaker students to achieve certain level ... and finding the satisfaction thru their hard labour? And lowly paid? That is a passionate and dedicated teacher!!

So ... I have to repeat it clearly here. I am a teacher .... and will ALWAYS be. I love teaching. I love Math. Hence, teaching MATH is part of me ... even for free. By the way, I do volunteer to teach in orphanages. I was with Pure-Life society(Puchong) and Ozanam(PJ) when I was teaching in Stamford(PJ) ... and yes, for free .. of coz. Do you understand JOY of seeing those kids, appreciating you? If you wish to experience that ... please contact me(cpteh@yahoo.com ) as I am going to form a teaching-panel ... and reach for those who could not afford any tuition classes. Teach ... because you love education. Believe that education could CHANGE the kids lives ... and make a small difference in others ... by simply being a teacher!!



So ... I am a teacher ... I am a blogger. I blogged about my teaching. Natural, right? Still cant get it as there is no such human who like teaching others, even not paid? Still cant understand why a person spent hours typing and typing in an open cyberspace called BLOG? By the way, last time we don't call it a BLOG. Blog is kinda new word, fyi.

 

Yes ... please do not judge me from one-two posts I have written? I will sincerely apologise to anyone if I have un-intentionally offended anyone ... and please move away. I have moved away from preying eyes of i3 leh ... but someone posted me this in our chatbox.


See? sent to my FB chatbox la ... not that I want to know. I do not read those comments, anyway. Just a request(can I ask nicely?) ... DO NOT put my names in anywhere as I am not most of you said/mentioned. I never a stock-guru and I never go into i3 or even go out of i3. I am here in my BlogSpot way before i3 was there! Get me? Phew ... no need to justify why I am not a sifu, right?

Trader : I am a stock-market trader ... hmm ... how to explain this one?

Ok ... about 6 years ago ... I got myself inside a casino-liked place called KLSE ... or named BURSA. It is not accidental ... I planned ... 2 years before finally took the plunge. The year : Dec 2007. With capital RM10k that I borrowed, I started my journey when KLCI hitting new high. Err ... I do not even know what KLCI stands for back then ... not a single financial-related vocab ring inside my stupid-financial-idiotic brain. It is full with dungs ... haha ...

I started to read ... and I read a lot!! Haha .. I have to re-wire my brain, change the way I see money(money is the root of all evil ... into proverty is the root of all evil. Without money, how am I going to help myself, my family ... and those orphaned kids, ok?)

I could not really afford RM6 for The Edge (see ... u need to read my previous posts ... how excited I was every Sat 2pm, waiting for The Edge to hit Sabah) ... but, I make sure I read pages by pages ... I cant understand most of the things I read, so I needed about 4-6 hours in daily basis to READ. It was a huge struggle ... I got to know few bloggers ... Greptrader, Remnant, Jackie, Edwin ... who guided me(tho little ... I appreciated their help till today). I read blogs such as Dali, Alex Lu, Sam and few more(some have stopped).

So ... I told myself. One day ... I want to be as good as them ... as others, who know what trading is. I was naïve ... but, I never give up. I structured my own learning curve, preparing myself to be a trader in 5 years planning!! Yes ... 5 years! In the first year, 2008 ... market crashing ... was a good experience for me. I do think God has been very fair to me, to let me bite the bitterness of losing 70% of my capitals which I could not afford to lose as I borrowed. Looking back, I think any normal human would have quitted. But ... a stupid me, pulled myself from the brink of failure ... and borrowed more money(do not follow my footstep here as we could get ourselves into deep trouble!!) and market recovering so so well since 2009. Buying anything in 2009 was ... easy!! Haha ... I bought Annjoo-wb at 20cents, it went to 35cents for me to sell in weeks!! The thrill ... gosh ... that is what market could do to us ... the UP and the DOWN.

The rest is history ... I am turning myself to be a stock-trader. More books and more reading ... more resources ... and my blog gathering momentum too. I used to have 30-50 readers(serious leh) ... it grew to few k viewers per day. And one day ... i3 contacted me, asking permission to put my blog in their new portal. The admin travelled from Spore to meet me personally ... and how can I say ... no? But, I did warn him ... my blog is my personal space. I do not and will not write for i3-audience. I want to write about washing dirty laundry can I? He laughed and said ... of coz, anything!! And still appreciate my passion of teaching others about trading, investing ... err... I think he valued my REAL journey of becoming a trader. How a person .. teaching Math, know nothing about finances, getting himself passionate about trading.

Do I need to explain PASSION again?

Do I need to repeat that I am a trader? You know that, right?

Do you remember I am a blogger? So ... I will blog about my trading adventure, right? That is how the name of this blog came about leh?

And add these together : A passionate person ... liking what he is doing ... blogger ---> trader.

So, this blog is born NATURALLY leh. See?

How I started to teach trading? Do read my post FIVE years ago ... I planned to teach trading way BEFORE I know what trading is!! Read la .. I do not delete or edit.

3 years ago ... I started my cohort-1 ... I was still an anti-social kinda introvert. I get upset with my ''students'' ... but these students are adults!! I am just a passionate teacher. I want to teach basic charting, paid or not. I charged RM50 per session, for 5 sessions(5 alternative Fridays ... sacrificing my Friday night tuition class!!) ... and I have a group of 10 to start with. Do you want to know how it started?

Someone kept pestering me ... asking me to teach him trading, He was following my blog!! Do you know that even before I started teaching ... I do have few "clients" asking me to analyse some charts for them and willing to pay me for that? Hey ...I  am a teacher, do you think I could say NO to these nice people? Again ... read my previous blog ... back in Dec 2010, I think. Before IJMLand crashing down due to no-deal with MRCB regarding the Sg-Buluh development. Were you there then?

I don't know how to charge ... I charge them the rate I am charging my tuition students!! Haha ... because ... all I want is to teach la.

Wait ... before you forgot again ... I am a passionate teacher. I LOVE teaching. If you don't know or understand that, you DO NOT know me at all.

And before you forgotten ... I have to remind everyone again ... I am a trader. That is no accident ...

So, teaching trading comes NATURALLY to me. Can get it or not? You want to learn, I am so glad to teach. And I am having my cohort-14 later(now is 2am) Sat-Sun 2pm to 6pm. I am still the cheapest in town tho I have increased my fees(being said to be too cheap and cheap will be seen as not good ... I still wonder, why should I charge few thousands for?). I will want to maintain my fees ... RM800 for 8 hours. You do not need to pay thousands for few days ... to learn the indicators. I could give you the websites, resources to learn and such. Just join my free facebook group I have created, with objective to TEACH trading. By the way, I am still charging the rate I am charging my students for tuition Math ... and teaching people about trading?

Why am I cheap? Because I do not have compile notes. I do NOT believe in giving notes. One could buy books to read(ask me, I will share with u. I wont mind buying the books for those could not afford and want to learn, ok?) .. reading books is good but WONT make us a good trader. I do not use software ... as I am a non-believer of such tools. And ... yes, I am cheap because personally, I feel I am not a sifu-level, to demand high charges. I want more to learn ... LOGICAL and affordable way. I will donate some parts of my earning here ... that is what I am doing. I prefer to focus in my own tuition biz and my own learning curve ... in the quest to be a better trader.

I do have a stock-watch group, for them to see my trades and LEARN from there. Not just profit-loss, but to LEARN. See ... I told you I am a teacher, it is 2.30am and I am still blogging. See, I told you I am a blogger and get excited when I do things I love doing? Whether anyone read or not, I m doing many things FOR MYSELF. Yup, I am a selfish person!! Haha . By the way, my stock-watch is a learning page too ... and I never increase the member fees. Old members will always with old fees. Don't believe? Ask them!! I have intention to make it free for those old members, in appreciating them for being supportive ... yes, after 2-3 years with me, we should appreciate those support us ... our roots, ok? To show that, I will definitely wont increase their fees and phasing out the subscription fees ... into give whatever u wish as I am donating them to my charity-fund I am creating? Watch me ... I am moving into that direction!

Put it this way... one day, I will be teaching trading and transfer all my proceeds into my charity funds. Yes, a robinhood kinda idea ... a child in me!

Still do not believe got such blogger ... teacher ... and a trader?

I have to state again ... I am a novice. I never claim I profit a lot from trading as I am still learning. I just want to be myself ... a blogger. I want to do what I am passionate doing .. teaching. And yes, I m into trading ... will you want to join me for traders yam-char talk ... free, of coz.

And ... yes, my main biz is my tuition centers. I need to focus in expanding my biz, so I will be too busy to have my cohort trading workshop. I do not like promoting myself ... so, please leave me, ok? Do not compare me with others ... as I am unique. For sure, I am not a good promoter, not good in marketing, packaging ... sales gimmicks blah-blah ... Perhaps, one day ... I will employ someone to promote/sell me? Till then ...



I am a teacher.

Have a nice weekend.

night zzzz

That sinking feeling ... again


KLCI is dropping 12 points. I managed to short FKLI yesterday, and triggered my profit-taking.


Longed FKLI 1811 done. FKLI is very very volatile and risk ... every one point is RM50. So, 10 points going against our predicted direction will cost us RM500. We can short FKLI to hedge against our equities.

Yes ... that sinking feeling yet again ... as all worrying of the recent dropped to 1770 level. This time, will it break 1800 again?

CIMB and Petdag broken support and heading lower today.


PetDag : Trading at 17.50 level now, it broken RM18 today. That is about 4-5% drop in a day!! Wow ... wait for signals ... buy.


http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/11/21/no-more-petrol-subsidy-dec-1/

could it be because of this piece of news? Now we will be squeezed. With GST coming ... we have to thank of VERY in-efficient government. Well, at least they are corruption-free.


Another culprit is CIMB, broken RM6 yesterday. Are they going to support the price at RM5.50?


DNex ... hit 40cents level resistance and at 32cents now. Will it sink below 30cents level?

Feel the sinking ship now?


KNM : The fav of many ... last month, someone from i3 came for my e-meeting, asked me about KNM. I asked him/her to sell as this is not for newbies. Next support 50cents. If PetDag is also diving ... what is KNM?


AMBank : Gapped down on 12th Nov ... I dared myself to buy at RM6.35 and selling would be at RM6.55, for profit taking.

And since I sold my banking AMBank and Affin too ... I want CIMB now.

How about Takaful that once I like much?



Takaful : Oversold ... watching for entry.

Yes ... I prefer to buy these stocks ... CIMB, Takaful ... AMBank ... BJToto(entry was below RM3.40 ... now RM3.50, sell RM3.60)

Not PDZ ... or XOX ...


PDZ is giving many that sinking feeling ... I received few e-mail asking me about their portfolio and most of them have PDZ or Sumatec in their losing portfolio. Others .. such as Iris, KNM ... Nextgram, Kinstel, Frontken ... such cap-ayam la.

Tmr I will have to emphasize in my trading workshop again ... never to touch cap-ayam lousy stocks.

KLCI down 13 points today.

Time to go for cycling ...

TEH

My focus in 2015


It is 3am ... I just ter-woke-up as I ter-sleep early. Last night no e-meeting after like almost everyday giving lecture. Haha ...

Cohort-14 : This weekend, I will have a group to share some pointers in my basic trading workshop. I don't know when will be the next one ... if I m free. Planning for one in Jan before CNY, then I will be very busy with my tuition classes till July?



Penang trip : I am going to have a good lunch with some of my trading-kaki next weekend(Saturday) . Yes ... those in Penang, we can meet for lunch next Saturday(on me, no worry) but you need to let me know earlier. So far, there will be 8 of us.

Langkawi trip : I will be giving a short market talk in this nice Island on Sunday(4pm) ... and have nice seafood dinner.



www.tratles.net  : It is time for me to check on the dormant site, which I am planning to keep my trade records there ... some trades I have taken (good or bad) and also for members to check on the trades. Yes, I hope to utilize the site as it is a waste. It shall contain ... a public page(a blog) and a member-only page. I will post some e-meeting clips too.



https://www.facebook.com/tratles : An open page for me to share my activities. Do click on it and LIKE my page. Thanks



https://www.facebook.com/groups/cpteh/ : A closed group for my blog readers, sharing of resources such as motivational clips, investment/trading articles and such. It will be free for public. Just don't call me sifu/guru, ok?

These are related to my trading activities. I do hope to be more organize next year as I know I m such a disorganize person. Haha ... I do hope to join few trading-training next year too ... to learn and improve myself. Yes, we are all in learning stage as market is too large for us to grasp. I am a slow learner ... but I will persist on.



When I learn something, I will share in my closed group. I will give opinions and hope members will share theirs too. That is how I learn and grow ...

I am humble that I do have many followers. I do hope I wont disappoint them ... as I do wish to make myself more relevant ... yes, I have a child in me(been like ... always) ... and I do like playing with kids. I like simple things.

I dislike quarrels, disputes ... and create a hostile situation. So, being a so-called public figure, I have to toe the lines which I DO NOT like. I prefer to be free and independent. But, my opinions becoming ... emm .. heavier on shoulder as I realized there are followers .... and I might un-intentionally influence them. I hope it is a good influence tho.

I am not a motivational sifu/guru either ... I just want to motivate MYSELF, in my writings and doings. It is to encourage everyone to be to motivated, persistence and work-hard. Here, in my blog ... I am just writing about my Trading Adventure, how I came from the newbie zero-level to my current novice level. My struggles ... my failures and successes. I am still seeing a long learning journey in me, while creating those groups or pages, I am still hoping to learn from many.

I need to mention that this is not my main "biz" that I am focusing ... it is just out of pleasure of being a teacher. So, I have no intention to compete with anyone out there. I want to do things MY WAY ... and like it or not, that is not my control/choice. We all need to have our own likings and ... if we dislike or disagree ... we just need to move on.


This is what I am focusing in. My own wiring ... need some clearing up. haha. I want to focus in my main biz --- TUITION. From renting tuition spaces to teachers, giving tuition personally, employing tutors for my tuition centers ... employing some workers to run my centers, to expand another center next year ... and create a website(blog and facebook) to promote my tuition-biz.



So ... that is my main things up in my head. While I will still check market in daily basis, and sharing with my group ... protect their interests. That explain why my group is cheap(fees) as it is my second-task in my busy schedules. I want my trading-journey to be shared with many newbies, and they will learn about what it takes to be a trader.

I have quit my full-time teaching since July 2014. It is taking this few months to shape what I needed to focus in coming 2015. Yes, I am preparing for 2015 ... mentally. I am also planning a trading space(those wish to trade together in the morning?) ... and a traders meeting(those wish to meet, yam-char to talk about their experiences) ... while I will be learning about public-speaking!!

Correct .. public-speaking as I am very bad in that. Haha ... I do not have patient with my audience, especially talking about share-market. Yeah .. it is a place where many simply refuses to use their logic(covered by GREED). So, I will like to organize more free public-talk, in the view of educational sharing. Hey, Bursa ... I am taking small bit part of the responsibility now ... in educating retailers. Yes ... we retailers are not always the losers to those operators. I am going out to spill some beans.



Toastmaster Club : I joined this last weekend. It is a good experience, seeing how some people learning to speak publicly. It is giving us the butterflies and the bees in out stomach. I definitely need to improve my English ... vocab, grandma ... punctuations and expressions. Heck ... everything about public speaking as I have been doing it all wrong. Haha. Here I wish to thank a FB friend, Ricky for inviting me to his toastmaster club. Thanks.




This is one excellent one. Admired him. The message too.


With the care-taker lady in the Rawang home. She said I am the very rare Chinese to contribute to her orphanage. She got aids from neaby masjid and recently, from UIA.


With the care-taker of a home for 40 boys. Education is what they needed, to get out of poverty and feeling of dis-owned.

I noticed that I wore the same t-shirt this year for both occasions? haha.

https://www.worldvision.com.my/Pages/Home.aspx

Charity : This is another small part of my busy lives that I will like to extend out to ... to form a fund-raising group, getting some volunteers to help me in reaching out for some under-privileged kids(homes) and bringing some cheers to those kids ... and that will give me the cheer in my heart that I needed. So, do leave me alone and do not judge me on my quest ... it is not something new to me. I started with my groups/org since I graduated 25 years ago. WorldVision, Purelife Society, Ozanam, WAO, Be-freinders, Hospis to name a few that I have volunteered and help. I was personally financially tight back then ... and promised myself to go back to contribute when I am doing OK financially ... we do not wait for us to be rich to donate, u know. I have known so many great human ... they are rich INSIDE them, not financially. So ... to do charity, we MUST have the passion for our cause.

So ... please leave me alone. Do not judge me if you do not know what I am doing, do not know me in person ... and un-fairly seeing only one-side of me. I do need my energy and focus to do what I wanted to carry out ... as I am planning for my 2015. Yes, I will be busier than when I was teaching in Taylor's college ... and making my dreams into reality!


So, I have to do the work.

It is almost 4.30 am now ... I do need to take a rest.

Morning.

Stock Watch : CIMB


CIMB : Broken the important RM6 support. At RM5.90 now. Need to watch for reversal to buy.

TEH

Newbies : Be aware of media


Good morning ... I have a good talk about newbies should not buy 7 types of stocks. I added an extra one : SPAC. Yes, newbies ... people like me who think we know trading but actually very little about it.

Fundamental analysis is the most crucial part ALL newbies/novices should learn. There is one good and kind person in i3 who is teaching and sharing about FA --- kcchong. Yes, I wish to find some time to read about his articles and comments. I did read some ... and kcc, if you are reading this .. thanks a lot.

We all have our opinions on FA or TA. So, it is ridiculous to argue which is which ... but I do still believe in trading good fundamental stocks. So, what newbies should be doing is ... LEARN about which companies are good and sound, ignore those speculative get-rich-quick stocks. I have said many of times that newbies will be lost punting in-out into those ... and strongly advise those who wish to learn to get a good mentor. Not me ... I do not know anything much about FA ... or TA. I am still learning ... from many.

When the years to come ... unfold, many punters will realize that ... trading is too difficult. No one get rich by trading short-term as the emotion control is too difficult for most of us to handle. Remember, when market dives ... nothing could stand still ... many over-valued stocks will dive too.

EGO ... this is something we all could learn to eliminate. I wish I do not have that in me ... I wish to be more humble ... as market will humble us. It is those days and those time when ... when we thought we are good enough, we fall. We are too complacent ... and exposing ourselves to too high of risk. We might be leading others to that situation ... and we could think that it has nothing to do with us.

We lead each other ... like it or not. We are influencing each other and create the crowd. Whether we are saying or doing certain things ''differently'', we still being influenced by people who get to know us ... and influencing people we know. I am very aware of my words here being followed closely by many now ... and as I blog without preparation ... or editing ... I do not delete my posts. I do have my UP and DOWN mood ... in a year, of coz. The high ... and the low tide. So, I will want to write it in my own close blog ... away from preying eyes. Well, because I like to write ... and being seen in public(many followers?), I am supposed to be professional? Nah ... I dislike the rigid restricted ways of things being done in the whole society. We should have our way of doing things. But most important thing, we should not offend anyone, cheat ... or perhaps, mis-lead?

So ... yesterday, when I mentioned about those lousy stocks ... I do put it nicely. Newbies. Yes, people of my level, who still humbled by Mr Market ... should not touch those stocks. I have learnt many lessons(painful ones too) ... and I just hope to reach out to many more newbies who just came into stock market, and un-aware of the risk they are exposed to. Being a teacher, I do hope I could impart some of my experiences that I have gathered for past 5-6 years ... of struggling in trading.

Everything I wrote here are meant for my personal reading, my personal opinions and not to oppose anyone in anyway. But, people like to judge ... without knowing what it meant. If one thinks he is not a newbie, and earning well from those speculative counters, WHY NOT? So, I m not pointing to anyone. I have no personal attack on anyone ... just my opinions(novice level) on things going around in the noisy market place ...

When I said aunty-uncle, I am referring to retirees who are just too free and came into stock-market. That is a category I m most concern about as they are exposed to high risk. Yes, if for youngsters(below 30) to be in market ... it is OK for them to learn thru trial-error, as those experiences will bring them good in future and they could still have the time to re-coup their losses. But ... what about those above 60 years old? If we have lots and lots of money, burning some for the excitement ... err .. I think it is ok(why not donate it away to needy ones?) ... but if we are using our retirement funds(EPF, pension etc) ... that is the risk I am talking about.

I do hope I do not offend anyone by stating such ... it is just my opinion that those can't-afford-to-lose group should not buy into those penny-speculative counters. And do not follow blindly into buying those hot-stocks. It is hot for a reason ... if we do not know how to exit, we will be cultivating greed in ourselves, without knowing it.

Simple summary : Never touch these "things"

1. PN17 stocks(potential to be de-listed)
2. Losing money companies(every quarters bleeding)
3. Over-valued stocks(up few hundreds percent)
4. Buying cyclical stocks(at peak)
5. China-stocks(polished balance sheets)
6. Call-warrants(short expiry, not liquid)
7. Pump and Dump(speculative ones)
8. SPAC

Here is the reminder and summary again ... if one is newbie(less than 3yrs in KLSE) and above 60yrs old ... as a age guideline, these are too risky for you to touch. Just promise that you will not buy into them. If you do not know which is which, ask around in the forums ... I do believe many good souls will guide you. Remember ... ask those 20% winners. Ask your good friend who are in market long enough to advise you.


This was taken yesterday ... the most actively traded counters. All the penny, like what RI said ... cap ayam. Haha ... this are for experienced good punters who know the movements and their experiences could give them good profits trading these kinda stocks. I have to admit that I do not know how to buying into these ... so, I just given them a skip. My trading system just failed ...on these stocks. Do remember ... the stocks are active for a reason(THINK) and they are cheap for a reason too(THINK).

I do hope remisiers/dealers will be more responsible too. If your clients are newbies, advise them not to buy into these cap-ayam stocks. Give them good stocks to trade. If they are ignorant and stubborn(many of them) ... then the risk is their. We all should never blame our remisiers/dealers if we lose money due to their recommendation. We should take responsibility of our own trades, asking them opinions and guidance.

Analysts too .. should be more responsible ... we newbies do read broker reports to buy/sell. When we see the high target price, we will be tempted to ADD. I do know analysts are just doing their jobs ... but we, newbie retailers do follow those reports, ok? Again ... we should not blame the analysts for our losses, right?

Bloggers should be more responsible in their sharing? Especially they know they have followers? Ok, for my blah-blah blog, how about not following my writing, please? Unlike many bloggers, I prefer to be on my own ... writing whatever I have in mind. I like the freedom of writing, and I have nothing to show ... I like putting in those nice songs, those valuable clips to share ... or perhaps, washing my laundry in public, ok? I cant speak about other bloggers ... but if you are buying stocks due to their writings, just understand that they are very much a human. Perhaps, they do have personal agenda or interest in the stocks?

Anything written in media should be taken on the surface. WE ... yes, readers ... should be aware of internet(scams, lies and such) is a place where many un-true things being thrown in. We have to filter. For sure, I will protect my mind ... and that is the most important asset. Media certainly influence the movement of stocks ... good report, bad report ... and more.

Politics is another area I will not want to write or get involve too ... too many people spreading rumours, lies, hatred. So, leaving politic aside ...

Time to go for my morning jog. And to reflect on my words.

Nothing written here should be taken seriously ... relax-la .. afterall, I m not even a stock analyst, ok? I am .. just a blogger.

Have a nice punting day

We are the expert



I have tried to pull myself out of the cozy bed ... and to plan for the day. Good morning ... 5am ritual need to kick start as 2015 new year is nearing ...

Yesterday, KLCI giving slight cheers to many retailers as it rebounded well. We shall check 1840 level, while I have been busy buying since last Thu-Friday. So, time to slowly un-load and moving to end of Nov ... the holiday period is here.



Muhibah : I have sold all yesterday. Part in the morning at 2.32(hit 2.36) and day-trade her as it came down to 2.22 ... bought back and sold all 2.28-2.29. A good trade indeed as we bought below 2.20.

I will take the trade again today as the expert mentioned target price RM3.64, ADD call.

Expert : What We Think We were surprised by the selldown, which could have spilled over from investors' general concern over the impact of the decline in oil prices on upstream pure oil & gas players. The fact that Muhibbah did not benefit from the award of the regas plant in Pengerang should not be a major concern as 1) the group did not tender for the job, and 2) Pengerang and Rapid are two totally different tender areas. Management clarified that the group's tenders in Rapid for more than one refinery subcontract works remain intact. We expect it to land a contract in the short term, worth up to RM500m based on a recent article in The Edge Weekly. Muhibbah could be in the running for up to c.RM1bn worth of projects in Rapid. This excludes new infra tenders in Pengerang which have emerged in the last 2-3 months.

Like my page : https://www.facebook.com/tratles here.

As I am trying to re-activate my tratles.net, I will have to start to promote the page and site. Well, I will create a member only page there too, to post my trades and for recording purposes. Will also post some stock-analysis there ... and some of my e-meeting(recorded).

As market is getting hot ... I will want to do the opposite of most so-called sifu/guru. I want to discourage newbies/novices from punting into those speculative counters ... those losing money counters. Yeah ... sound kinda negative, but it is for their own good as they will get themselves GREEDIER and ... as market going to come down sharply(due to GST? due to 1MDB?) due to high risk ... many might get caught. Be aware of these, ok?

So, tonight I will talk about stocks we should not be buying if we are newbies/novices. Of coz I do know 80% of them will not listen ... after all, we only have 20% non-losers in any given markets, right?




You see ... when things are NOT as it seen to be ... these so-called sifu/guru aka sales-people will be trying to draw us to their points, making things more complicated so that newbies being confused and we think that is the only correct as it is given by an expert? Haha

Listen to the simple clip above, newbies. Don't be so naïve ... if all those indicators salesmen telling you that you need SEVEN indicators, in line with BUY signals ... and then, u are believing those signals? THINK ... if that is so simple, don't you think so they would have done that trade well, and perhaps ... get rich?

You are the EXPERT.

Serious issue in trading/investing. It seems that everyone want an easy way out. Why cant we learn first ... see what is possible and alternatives. Then, see if that is LOGICAL to us, ... rather than taking their words in total. PERHAPS ... they are selling you their software? PERHAPS ... they are selling you a sure-win stock tips(and they wont buy it themselves, right? Must give to u, and you pay for that?).

PERHAPS ... they earn commission from your trades, if u win or lose?

PERHAPS it is time to use common-sense that is NOT there?

Welcome to stock-market ... where SEVEN lines could be drawn perpendicular to each other ... and we can draw a straight line, in the shape of a kitten? Haha.

Listen to the clip, you will UNDERSTAND why so many suckers buying softwares, paid thousands in those trading courses ... or even paid for stock-tips. Oh yes, by the way ... I will be having a trading workshop this weekend(cpteh@yahoo.com )... to explain WHY it is silly to believe those salesmen. Attend those preview talks, perhaps JOIN them(pay your thousands, please) ... perhaps, you might know what I mean.

Task : Try to draw 7 lines ... and they must be perpendicular to each other, ok? Perpendicular = right angled = 90 degree = sudut tepat = 90 darjah.

Have a nice day.

Handling criticism





#1 : Do not focus in criticism. Focus in our own goals.

#2 : Take criticism as compliment.

#3 : Take criticism constructively.

#4 : Critics are in fear and feel threatened.

#5 : Leaders are visionary. Critics are not.

I have been learning about "criticism" and how I should handle these baseless criticism. So, I will move away from these BAD humans as they cant be successful in whatever they are doing, unless they are your best partners who want you to improve. Then, I will see it constructively ... and see my weaknesses, in the form of step-stone to improve.

Yes, people feel so threatened ... and lead them to criticism someone who are doing better than them. The inferior complexity in them ... pulsing them to criticize without concrete solution or points. These are everywhere ... as if my writings is being read by few hundreds out there, I m definite we have bad-red-eye human will criticize us. Do not go down to their level ... focus in our own goal(whatever it is).

In trading, as in lives ... we do not need negativity in our mind. We need to generate good energy(chi/vibes) for us to carry on our tasks ... and putting things in place. It is seeing opportunity in every aspects and move on if we have failed ... picking up our mistakes and use them constructively.

Last night, I had an e-meeting. I talked about how DIFFICULT trading is ... and if ANYONE telling us how EASY it is, they are lying. They want to sell you something. And they know you are a greedy lots being in stock-markets. While statistics showing 80% losers out there, losers cant be right. So ... as trading is difficult, that doesn't mean we need to know 20 financial ratios or 20 technical indicators to trade. It is ALL in our mind. Those selling you ratios or indicators may have something in them that they want you to believe. Unfortunately, I do not believe in such ...

I believe in hardwork. Things we do in daily basis. I believe we need PASSION and putting our commitment in whatever we want to excel in. If it is easy, it certainly cant be good ... or consistent. That is the way nature is telling us the LOGIC ...

Learning from mistakes ... I shared that too, many of my silly mistakes making me to understand how difficult trading could be ... as we are just very human to err.

And I made a conclusion for my audience ... DO NOT think of being a trader if you do not have passion for it, staying positive to survive and used your time effectively to learn to be a better trader ... and a better person, as a whole.

GOOD MORNING ... it is Monday.

Stop criticizing and complaining. Do something about yourself. See the POSITIVENESS in anyone and anything. We can change ourselves. I have decided to changed myself 10 years ago ... and it have changed my life.

Remember ... we can UBAH if we want ... as we are in control of ourselves. If one is still sticking with negative humans(they are everywhere, unfortunately) ... we cant move higher as when we are doing better than them, we will start to criticize us to bring us down to their level.

Get out of the negative people, environment is one of the first step you could safe-guard your precious MIND. Çoz ... if you started BAD habits these losers have ... it will be difficult to get out of the situation ...

GOOD MORNING ... and have a nice day!

Note : I will have next e-meeting this Wednesday night, talking about Trading Mistakes : The 7 stocks we should not be trading if we are newbies.

Deepavali Charity Home



Today ... I went for my be-lated Deepavali Charity Drive. Yes .. belated ... as it is about a month ago we celebrated Deepavali festival. I am a person who do not believe in festivals ... and I do believe during festival seasons, many donated to these homes and many large organizations or cooperation will be having the charity drives. Malaysians are generally generous. I m glad we have such good society ... as we could still afford to give ... even a small amount, to those needy ones.

I have chosen my cause ... it will be orphanages.  I have adopted a Malay orphanage home at Rawang for past 3 years ... and as they are gathering more funds and doing much better, I will slowly moving out to those more homes ... who might need help.

https://www.facebook.com/AgathiansShelter?fref=ts

They do have a facebook page ... do check them out. They are just in PJ ... section 8.


Due to my small car ... and with two of the boys with me, I could not carry much items. Only spent about RM1700 on some necessary items. I will be going to the home again for next round ... and will be in contact with the person in charge. Yes, I have given them my number ... and will be buying the boys their school stationeries, uniforms and etc.


The two boys, Valen (the spec one, 14) and Karuna(facing, 15) are two of the boys helped me to carry those items. They have been at the home for past 8 years. Hailing from Klang, Valen came from a poor family and his family could not afford to raise him and bro/sis. He didn't tell me more of his stories ... and I am just a stranger to him, yet. Karuna is from Kajang. A more quiet one ... I do not manage to get any info about his past. But, gladly they called me Uncle Teh ... and I bought them drinks. My advice to them : Study well.

I am thinking of funding their tuition ... by gathering some tutors to volunteer to teach these boys. And pay the tutor ''small'' amount. Education is what these boys needed ... to get away from proverty, vices and helping the community.


These boys doing some dance ... and called themselves, AGBreakers.


The group photo ... many the boys suddenly joined in. Haha ... well-behaved and thanking me much for the small donation. I do not give cash as I do not believe in that. I prefer to go there personally and just call me up ... and let me know what they need, I will get them the necessities.

It is my dream .. from my heart, to reach out for these under-privileged kids. Boys or girls. Black or white. It has never been my bother ... as I always believe charity is from the heart, when we feel satisfied and glad inside ... knowing that we have make the huge world slightly happier with our small existence.

One day ... I know, when I m no longer working so busy as I m now, I will like to dedicate my time blogging about them ... giving these homes a platform to be known, and the place they deserved. I will like to have a relief-center sort-of ... to link these homes, network them together and becoming more efficient in distributing of funds and items.

Till then ... I will still do in small manner, whatever making me happy ... and craving some smiles on these kids.

Thanking many who have contributed to the fund raising, by generously believing in me. I am just a social worker ... and many behind my cause have helped to contribute. In them, I would personally say :

We are all geniuses






Hypnosis of geniuses : Passion, obsession and much work behind the successes shown. We could only see the end-results, but hours and hours of daily drills ... to master a skill.

I used to wake up 4.30-5am in the morning ... everyday, including Sat/Sun when I was in KK. I trained my brain to think differently. I was a finance-idiot who knew NOTHING about finances. So, I will have to work much harder than anyone else to be in a fair playing ground.

I was a science-based person ... teaching Math for years. So, to speak about commodities, demand-supply, operational cost, depreciation ... to understand inflation, currency war, carry-trade ... zero interest rate, quantitative easing, GDP ... national debt, central banks? De-valuating of currencies ... stock-markets, IPOs ... right-issues, private placement ... syndicates, operators ... to the technical charting of stocks ... chart patterns, trading systems ...

All these were sound VERY alien to me who don't know anything much about saving-earning-investing some 7-8 years ago.

So, when I decided to CHANGE my MINDSET ... I worked extremely hard to force myself. What do I do in the first place to plan to be a trader ... one day? Yeah ... the one day is here TODAY. The day I could called myself a trader ... tho I m very much still in NOVICE level.

To many old readers, who have been following my posts for past 4-6 years, they will see the improvement in my trades : FA and TA wise. I started with FA ... and still strong believe we ALL should only trade good fundamental stocks! That is what being shared with my trading group. We just bought PChem as the support is RM5.35 ... so, buying nearing to 5.35 was a trade being PLANNED when it was diving from RM5.80. I bought earlier at RM5.57 ... all the way down to RM5.36.

Yes, good fundamental stocks ... low could still go lower due to some change in fundamentals. For example, the low price of crude-oil will affect the profit-margin in many O&G companies. That is the worry now for those in the industry. But if we could buy PChem  nearing to support RM5.35, our risk is LOW ... as we could exercise cut-loss if below RM 5.30 level, right? But the reward ... the upside, the rebound is much higher.

Trading good fundamental companies using technical charts for entry. That is what I m doing and learning to do.

MOST of those speculative punting counters could not use technical. Those signals failing most of the time. Put all the indicators as u wish ... if only it is that easy?

Give yourself TIME to develop a good mindset. Start with read good books about how to have a good mindset ... and learn to screen only good fundamental stocks(profiting companies, good dividend yield) ... then, learn charting for entry and exit.

SO ... we all think we are geniuses, right? Then ... learn for hours ... learn it well. Start it well. Learn from experiences and mistakes. And continue to improve. That is how I think I could be a better trader, one day.

Invest in ourselves. We are the greatest asset. OUR LOGICAL BRAIN. Buy those good books ... read till many idea embed in our system ... then, we could do many things more "natural". Remember ... no such thing as short-cut. Pay good money in YOURSELF. Don't bother to pay those thousands of dollars to trading workshop(heck, most trainers not even active traders) ... for worst, believing in software to trade on our behalf(heck .. it is just a tool, ok?). And paid hundreds per month for stock-tips(heck .. if that is get-rich-quick mentality asking us to buy penny speculative stocks, you better get out and run fast).

Because we all are born geniuses ... we certainly deserve better to improve ourselves. We certainly know what really works ... and what is not. We just need to be rational and THINK.

To help newbies to START ... and start it ''right'' with right mindset is NOT easy. As newbies, we do not understand how risky trading is. So, get a good mentor!! Not someone asking you to punt/gamble.

Get that brain of ours wired again ... and have a nice Sunday ahead.

off to do some geniuses work. haha
