Some readers of this blog might be wondering: what has happened to Bursa Dummy lately??
This blog has been somewhat "abandoned" since the start of year 2016.
The reason is, I have shifted my focus out of stock market at the moment.
Now, I don't look at real time stock market price, I read less stock market news and I even forgot my stock trading login password at one time!
I don't even check the closing price of the stocks at the end of each trading day.
However, this does not mean that I don't like or don't believe in stock market investing anymore.
I'm still holding lots of shares and might buy or sell if there is a need to do so.
Why are people investing in stock market? To me it's a way to maximize our net worth.
To achieve financial freedom, I wrote before that we need to Earn, Save, Protect & Invest.
I have invested in property and stock markets, and I will continue to do so. Now I'm trying to earn more by doing some business.
That's why I spend less time in stock market, blogging and doing company research.
From year 2008 to 2012, I was doing property market research and viewing subsale and new properties.
After 2012, I just didn't feel it's a right time for me to buy more properties. So I shifted my focus more into stock market in 2013.
That's the time I developed my new investment strategy and became more active in blogging.
Now we are in year 2016. Personally I don't think that it will be a very good year for stock and property markets.
So, I'm thinking of maximizing my earning potential through business venture so that I can have more cash to invest when the time comes.
Anyway, I will still do a monthly summary for my stock portfolio here.
