Hi Tian Tian,
I do have interest in stock investing and have been trading all this while but without much success.
Found that trading is risky and can lose a lot of money.

Recently read a book, 'The Great Investor' which is a good book
that taught me that trading is actually speculation!

Am interested to learn more about the right way to stock investing,
not speculation.

Still learning, so in the future hopefully can invest properly when I have the money.

there is a difference between investing and trading. if you are investing for long terms, look at the underlying fundamentals of the company, the sector, the macroeconomics, etc.

if you are trading, look at the charts. get familiar with support, resistance, moving averages, and some basic patterns.

ultimately it takes a lot of experience to be a good trader.

I have been investing in manual+ automated trading in Forex. I did not do any thing but just park my capital in the Account with the company agent. So far, the gain is positive which is 5% to 8% per mth. Anyone is interested, can pm me.

forex is very high risk, you can lose everything at one go. I don't advise anything to go into forex if you don't understand the derivatives behind it.

Agreed, it is high risk investment. A friend recommended me this platform using automated plus the traders trade manually. I went to their seminar and knowing that they trade conservatively and they do cut loss. I don't invest much, still looking into it.

I recommend POSB Savers Invest for the STI ETF.

Or open an account with fundsupermart and buy the STI ETF.
