New Trading Strategy to Profit in Bull and Bear Markets!

What’s your story?
According to statistics, more than 90% of people lose money when trading the financial markets — some even lose their entire savings and go into debt because of it.

So, my goal is to save them from self-destruction through proper education.

What excites you most about your industry?
In the past, if you want to learn how to invest or trade, you’d easily fork out thousands of dollars just to learn the basics.

Today, with the internet, anyone can research and learn about the financial markets for free. And with the right education and mindset, an average person can grow their wealth and possibly retire 10 – 20 years earlier.

What’s your connection to Asia?
I was born in Singapore and have been living here all my life.

Favourite city in Asia for business and why?
I’m probably biased when I say this, but Singapore, because it’s one of the safest countries in the world, it’s stable, and the tax rate is relatively low.

What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
Henry Ford once said… “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t — you’re right.”

I love it!

Who inspires you?
Bill gates. He gave more than half his wealth to help the poor around the world.

And, he still remains one of the richest people alive.

What have you just learnt recently that blew you away?
“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” — Zig Ziglar

The idea is to stop focusing on yourself because nobody cares about you, they only care about themselves.

So, focus on providing value and serving others. It’s a rewarding experience and somehow, you’ll get paid many times over.

If you had your time again, what would you do differently?
I wouldn’t change a thing. My mistakes, lessons learned, and the people I’ve met made me who I am today, and because if I were to change something, it might make me worse off in the long-run.

For example: I was once severely overweight topping the scales at 108kg but eventually, I got back down to my normal weight.

Now, I could have wished I wasn’t fat so I didn’t have to face issues fat people encounter, like being overly self-conscious, difficulty finding clothes, no girlfriend, etc.

But that experience taught me about mindset, perseverance, and how I can achieve anything as long as I set my mind to it.

Clearly, that “bad” experience has a ton of positives that more than compensated for it.

How do you unwind?
I go for a holiday and observe other people.

Favourite Asian destination for relaxation? Why?
Tokyo. It’s clean, safe, and the food is great!
