Get Rewarded for Healthy Lifestyle!

I'm a very lazy person when you talk about exercise. Since my early retirement from the corporate world to become a fulltime investor, I've been putting on weight, all at the wrong place you know. I always tell myself I must exercise to stay heathly, cos Health is Wealth! But I always stick to my computer, now worst with this new blogging hobby!

So I try to force myself to exercise by signing up for Healthy Lifestyle Brisk Walking with RC. I know this does not help much, but at least I try to exercise and get to meet uncles and aunties in my area - very soon I will be like them!

Guess what, I get rewarded for participating! I pay $1 for every session, get a goodie bag of an apple, a bun and a bottle of mineral water. On top of that, I can get a $5 NTUC voucher for every 3 sessions I participated. Wah, Health is really Wealth!

So far I only got one $5 NTUC voucher, see how lazy I am!

Best Capital Protected Dividend Stock

I'm a long term investor for my shareholdings in NTUC Income. Regardless of bull or bear market, my capital does not depreciate in value cos it is not listed in the stock exchange. It pays good annual dividends between 5% to 8%, depending on performance. 2007 was the top of the bull run, I received the highest dividend payout. On top of this, it rewards me with bonus shares. Each share cost $10. Wah, Best of the Best FD in town!

Too bad, I cannot increase my investment in this safe haven cos NTUC puts a max. on shares each policyholder can hold. To exit, I need to give NTUC one year's notice. So you can guess lor, maybe must wait more than one year if you want to buy cos must queue up to wait for people to sell. I will not sell, will you?

I'm also a long term shareholder of NTUC Fairprice. Aiyah, this one is chicken feet lah, cost $1 only, max. even lower. Also pays good annual dividends, helps me beat inflation lor.

About This Blog

Welcome to S.M.A.R.T. Investing with TSK, sharing my Big-Picture approach to Investing in the Stock Market and Other Investments. Get the Big-Picture right and the Big Profits will follow. Investing smart in this market beats reacting to it. I hope some day, some smart investor will take my blog private for their sole benefit, lol! Dare to dream, dare to be different!

Crisis is Opportunity. Volatility is Opportunity. Since October 2007 when the bear market started, people have been looking for a market bottom. However with this bear market which might run from 4-7 years or more, a bottom might not be the bottom yet. To adopt a buy and hold strategy no longer works without accurate timing. So to make money from such opportunities, I need a good market timing tool to determine when to enter/exit my investments.

I use Stock Market Astrology/Fengshui combined with reliable Technical Analysis to forecast the future market direction which helps me Beat the Market with 80% accuracy. “Millionaires don't use astrology, BILLIONAIRES do” ...JP Morgan.

Here, I share with you my money making secrets:

Beat the Market: Explains the Big-Picture Approach I adopt, How I obtain reliable information to forecast the future market direction with 80% accuracy - I'm no Astrologer, Fengshui Master nor expert in Technical Analysis, My success stories using this approach – friends who met me in March 2008 benefited from my forecast for bear market rally in April/May 2008 – heh friends, you know to what to do lah!

Crystal Ball (Monthly): Monthly Forecasts on Stock Market Direction, with weekly and adhoc updates. Crystal Ball (The Future) provides forecasts for a longer term period.

Crystal Ball (Crash Alert): Alerts of potential major market reversals/crashes based on key indicators.

Money No Enough?: Ways to make that extra pocket money to beat inflation.

Other Investments: What other alternative investments can I consider or am I invested in since equities are no longer a safe haven.

Upcoming Seminars: Free seminars you can attend for updates on stock and related investment outlook and opportunities to improve your investing/trading skills.

So lookout for my postings/updates on the above and more.

Beat the Market

My Secrets Revealed!

Failure is the Mother of Success! To succeed, i.e. for me to consistently profit from the market and make it my ATM machine, I need to be able to see the future market direction instead of reacting to it. I need this Crystal Ball to make me a "Smart Investor Always Succeed" and no longer a "Silly Investor Always Suffer"!

But I'm no Astrologer, Fengshui Master nor expert in Technical Analysis. So I started my search for this Crystal Ball, surfing the internet for experts providing stock market forecasts and information, worldwide. Why not tap on their expertise! I only need to test to confirm the accuracy and reliability of their forecasts and information (see my success stories), and bingo! I got a Crystal Ball with 80% accuracy! I can manage my money and manage my life!

Focus on the BIG-PICTURE, get it right and the Big Profits will follow, whether I invest in the stock market or other investments.

The BIG-PICTURE is know where we are in the Business Cycle as well as the Stock Market Cycle. It is not easy to identify where we are in the Business Cycle, however, we can roughly gauge it from the Stock Market Cycle. It is said that the Stock Market Cycle is usually about 6-9 months ahead of the Business Cycle. We are now in a Bear Market that started in October 2007, which might last for 4-7 years or more (I hope not). So are you ready for Recession or the next Great Depression?

Its amazing how Astrology/Fengshui can be applied to forecast the future market direction with great accuracy. Both Astrology/Fengshui and Technical Analysis have their own strengths and weaknesses. So I use Astrology/Fengshui combined with Technical Analysis for my Crystal Ball to increase its accuracy for timing the market.

tracks the DOW, Nikkei, Hangseng and Shanghai indices closely. STI chart is quite similar to that of S&P. So I use the forecasts for DOW and S&P directions to determine the possible STI movement.

With the market direction forecasted, which sectors and which stocks should I buy? Fengshui is applied to forecast the sectors which might do well and technical analysis is used to identify the stocks to buy. In a Bear Market, it makes sense to lookout for STI component stocks because these would be the first to move in a bear rally.

Lastly, follow the trading rules to manage my investments.
