    I doubt anyone could highlight better the dangers of having no stop losses, money management plan, position sizing techniques etc.

    Never date Asian women because they are tight and only ever interested in money.

    Nice one, i have no doubts i would be up as well, if i didnt go on holidays for january and feb and return and jump back into the market one day before the biggest fall in 5 years.

    But 2005 and 2006 were very kind to me, 2007 we'll see...

    'So, the 67-year-old former sailor, who runs a shop selling women's clothes in Chinatown, gave his son $300,000 - his whole life savings - to invest in shares.'

    Oh well, I guess if they've lost their shirts off their back, at last they can wear some of the shop stock. :eek:

    Geez. It's pretty hard to spot a tongue in cheek comment online isn't it? What a dry audience.

    As for you snake, maybe we should go and have a look through some muslim threads shall we?

    The moral of the story - RESEARCH!!!

    Blind Freddy could tell you it's all about to go tits up. This is why it's a bad idea to invest at the end of a Bull Market, but that seems to be when the inexperienced love to jump into the stock market.

    An unbelievably stupid statement!!!.

    Her support has been way above the normal call of duty. Have a go at him by all means, but please do not extrapolate his stupidity across all asian women.

    Your comments are high defamatory for all asian women.

    There was another one I read just a few days ago in Indonesia, a guy lost all his money, they where quite a wealthy family.

    The wife left a message on her mobile phone saying she couldnt handle being poor, poisoned all her kids breakfast cereal then popped herself leaving the message she was taking the kids for a journey to heaven.

    How can people be such nutjobs that they love Money more than life?

    Ahh the two things that'll kill anyone.

    Initial 'lucky' success and borrowing to trade.


    Combined they are deadly.

    It is best never to borrow to trade, and in alot of ways it is best not have have initial success - a good kick in the ass can keep you wary forever.
