Am a typical retail investor who started investing in stock market in 1993, the same length of period as SingTel was listed in SGX and ironically SingTel was my first vested stock. Back then was a passive investor and started to turn more active in stock market in 2006. A year later when I switched my engineering job to a finance related one, I became what commonly known as trader ( trade for living ) and at the same time also strongly believe in fundamental/value investing that is the way to growth wealth. In a way I classify myself as a "Strategic Investor". As a trader, I track market movement daily and as an value investor, I am always on the lookout for cheap bargain to hold for long term.
