I hv a friend who always tell me about his stocks.
I asked him isn't it a gamble.
He told me about those technical stuffs to analyse and to interpret. In gambling you can't use those skills.
So I ask him so with wisdom and knowledge and mastery of those technical skills which he mentioned basically is earn liao right he say no, once u invest means prepared to lose that amount. As there is miscalculation sometimes.
So I ask him what does it depend on, if wisdom and knowledge and skill doesn't help, isn't it depend on luck, he can't answer me.

So I've not invested  8)

In my part, I prefer Bitcoin/Ethereum.
For now,  I use Singbit.sg and it seems to be a system for trading and no transaction fees. It also has a referral program that's why I gather some friends to sign-up as it let you earn $30,000 in Bitcoin.
I try every option I can in investing but I need to try every single possibilities and invest also in time learning using bitcoin properly.

how are your bitcoin returns so far?

I also have some investments in stocks but I've only seen red for this past few months.
The stock market is never consistent on me.  ;D
I'm optimistic though that I'll recover. haha

Don't know about forex but for stocks and bonds,  it is important to start early and to be consistent

Been interested about it for more than a year now. I haven't found the right timing or it just escapes my mind.

Hmm
- whole life insurance for protection with Surrender value (invest to my coverage haha)
- Singtel shares to earn some dividends lo (looking for other portfolio too

I thought conventional wisdom is to buy term and invest the difference?   the rate of PAR policies and endowments is extremely poor and you could do better by buying cheaper term insurance coverage and putting the amount saved into a simple ETF such as STI ETF (SGX.ES3) - this "simple" ETF buys you into the 30 component stocks of the STI (including Singtel, DBS, OCBC, UOB, Keppel etc) and pays you a dividend twice yearly.

http://www.spdrs.com.sg/etf/fund/spdr-straits-times-index-etf-ES3.html

it is a full replication physical index (ie. buys the underlying stocks and not synthetically replicated) and has a relatively low total expense ratio - TER 0.3%.

Nothing wrong with picking individual stocks of course especially blue-chips like DBS, OCBC, Keppel Corp or even SingTel.   

BTW, SingTel is doing poorly and could potentially be disrupted by the new entrants (TPG and Circles Life).  they have promised to hold the dividend for the next 2 years to shore up the share price but look at what happened to Starhub with its fat juicy dividend .....
