Buy and hold forever?

By: La Papillion HH passed me an excellent article on buying and hold fallacy which I linked it here. The idea of buying and holding is what long term investors would like to do.

By: La Papillion I finished reading the dividend book…managed to complete reading it in a day. I never knew I could squeeze so much time if I had to, though it is quite tiring.

STI up another 1.24%

By: La Papillion Dow was still up last night and the party goes on. STI went up another 43 pts (1.24%) to close at 3521 with a volume of almost 2 billion. All the biggies moved up – SGX, DBS, Cosco…could it be that funds are buying up now to window dress their portfolio for the next year? Possibility is there. A lot of funny stuff happened towards market close. Sudden whack up and whack down to change the closing price – almost as if the BBs are trying to making the candlestick nice, haha! I saw that happening...
