Risk and Leverage are subjective. Knowing Enough!!!

Read? Risk is subjective

Uncle8888 doesn't fight Mr Market with both arms. He is one arm swordsman. Why need leveraged instrument in margin trading for shorting or leverage up for higher yield on own investing capital e.g. assets pledging to open overdraft trading with brokers.

He doesn't have to polish his trading Craft for better Entries and Exits. He is Panda or Koala in the stock market; but his food is still not extinct yet!

Knowing enough!

Money is enough! Capital is enough! Risk is enough!

Parroting Buffet .... it is insane to risk what you have and need in order to obtain what you don’t need.”

Uncle8888 is already practicing it years ahead of his 2018 annual letter. :-)

We take calculated risks and leverages to meet our objectives, wants or needs. 

It is like that! Right?

Risk and Leverage are subjective. Knowing enough!


  1. CW,

    "Uncle8888 is already practicing it years ahead of his 2018 annual letter. :-)"

    Ego is strong in you ;)

    Pokes and jokes aside, there's a reason why I often refer readers with lots of questions to you and the bleeding heart.

    The 3 of us are not exactly agreeing all the time, are we?


    The few alert "confused" readers may discover my intention - own time, own target ;)

    The fool is one who surrounds himself with "yes men".

  2. Just sharing .....

    Why & How to use Margin Finance to increase PROFIT.

    Quote: " My purpose of writing this piece is to teach you how to make more money or how to improve your profit from the stock market by using margin finance. As I often said, I walk the talk. My wife and I have a total borrowing facility of more than Rm 100 million from 6 local financial institutions."


    p.s. I am a kiasi investor and thus I would not use any margin account for stock investment.

    1. For some people money is never enough no matter how much they already have

    2. Average retail investors don't lose their hard earned saving in the stock market is already an achievement.
