The Game That Is The Stock Market

Have you ever had that moment when a friend asks for your stock
 picks. And you, without hesitation, give out your most prized and
 thoroughly analyzed stock pick - with you having none. And later
 the next day you find out that your prized pick just outperformed
 every other stock in your port without you having a 
SINGLE BIT of share?

Frustrating right?

Then you think to yourself, 
"What if I sold everything and went all in on that prized stock?"
"Why did I not sell all my laggards?"
"Bakit walang forever?"

Ahhhhh emotions and reason. 
Because it is one thing to know, it is another to do.

For when you execute a trade, your whole being is involved. 
Your trades reflect who you are and what your current 
state of mind is.

Sometimes I wonder what it'll be like to let a kid gifted 
with strategy and self control handle my trading port.

Have you seen this Film? No? Poor you. 
Watch it. You'll get the whole point of this post.

In every single game, there's timing and tactics.

Take for example in the Game Clash of Clans,
you don't just deploy all your forces in one go.
You have to be careful with your placement 
or else this could happen.

I'm not discouraging the All In one stock method.
But whenever you do, always think of the risks.

And sometimes with minimal effort, 
you even get to win Big Bonuses.

So grab every opportunity to trade setups that you are familiar 
with that is most likely a 'sure shot'. 

Think of the stock market as a hobby or game you like to play.
Not some dreadful Job or something you have to do 
because you have to. But a game you actually Enjoy. And 
when you follow the rules and you play it just right, 
then the money will just follow.

I can show this snapshot since I don't have these babies anymore.
Too bad it didn't breach that 1M Profit Barrier. 

TGIF. Happy Weekend Everyone!


  1. Bro, you are an inspiration! I like the CoC analogy, ie baka ma-big bomb ang port. I love the papa JL meme. And the port is res ipsa loquitor (taken literally)! You're a rock star! Keep the dark humor and sarcasm coming (although di ko nga napapansin).

  2. Lol relating Clash of Clans in trading. It made me smile :). I miss that game
