Share investment is not an easy game

Fred Tam, the famous teacher of charting and some of his students visited me a few days ago as the below photo shows. They wanted to know how I can be so successful in share investing.


I told them to be successful, you need more than just the knowledge of financial and technical analyses. You need to be able to control your emotion of ego, greed, fear, confidence etc. to think logically. If everyone can think logically then all the listed shares in the market would be fully valued and there would not be any undervalued share for sale. But that is not the case.

About 2 years, I gave one of my grandsons Rm 5.50 million to invest in the stock market. He has a MA Economics and a CFA qualification. He lost Rm 1.5 million within one year and he realized the difficulties of playing the game.

My clever Dentist brother thought he could play the game well. But I had to bail him out a few times. Losing money had created some unbearable stress which was one of the reasons for him to commit suicide.

Today Edge page 16 carries an article “TA Enterprise looking at Tee Keong’s assets”. According to the article, Dato Lim Tee Keong, the eldest son of Genting founder Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong, lost a huge sum of money and TA Securities is suing him for Rm 146.62 million. Tee Keong passed away in April 2014. I think losing money has created some unbearable stress which could be one of the causes for his early death.

About 2 weeks ago, Keuh Tsu Tsung committed suicide due to his heavy losses in the stock market.

My advice to all the losers is to know when to retire and stop playing the stock market, instead of making senseless comments in If they really want to learn my investing method, they can find all my investment articles in my blog:

In the stock market is like 22 players chasing one round ball and trying to shoot it into the goal but the goal posts keep moving. This is a good analogy.
