DOW at new high 20,743



This is DOW weekly chart ... we are in new-high ... high on vicodin (Dr House's pill).


Here is the side-effect of Vicodin ... as I m watching HOUSE now (Season 3 : Episode 14 now), he will do anything to get his feeds.

So ... DOW at new high ... as would it be a potential bubble? I will continue to stay sideway at the moment.

Have a nice long day ahead ...

Note : Heard that TTB revised his view to 'bullish'. Is that true? I want to talk about Market-Crash ... interested?

THINK and GROW ... rich

Morning from Shah Alam ... seksyen 15 here. Having breakfast with wife while talking about being "RICH" ... balance with PEACE and HAPPINESS.

http://www.businessinsider.com/im-a-self-made-millionaire-and-im-convinced-there-are-only-5-ways-to-get-rich-2016-2?IR=T&r=US&IR=T

There are many definitions of what it means to be rich.

Being rich is more of a state of mind than a dollar amount. Truthfully, the rich can be poor and the poor can be rich. For example, being rich could be a family of five who lovingly share their small piece of bread in a third-world country. Conversely, another family of five may live in a 12-bedroom home and still have strife over an unlimited first-class feast!

Moreover, being rich is really about having it all. It would be ideal to have a combination of the aforementioned situations: the happy family enjoying a delectable meal in the big house — and it is possible. However, to achieve this kind of wealth, along with financial freedom, personal peace and happiness, you must get committed to it.

You must also be able to enjoy your wealth. Some people put in a hundred hours per week with work but completely neglect their families in the process. Others focus on their family so much that they never really get busy at work because of their obligations. Obviously, achieving a sense of balance will allow you to possess true wealth and also be able to enjoy it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is what I m reading just now ... then, shared with my wife the idea of being RICH. RICH is not defined in what car(s) we are driving or our accounts size ... it is about FAMILY ... HUMAN VALUES .. and how we share with OTHERS. It has nothing to do with US ... individual. It is about appreciating and giving back to society, putting smiles to those needing them.

Will write more ... and include the popular Napolean Hill's book.

Time to do some work ...

Train our brain

Monday morning ... I had a good e-meeting last night, sharing my stories and some of my main characteristics ... being a 'weird' human.

It is HUMAN ... we are our own enemy. It is the SYSTEM ... political, educational, banking.

I talked about many things last night ... got carried away, as normal emotional human would.

5 exercises to train your brain for happiness and success

You have an estimated 70,000 thoughts per day. That's 70,000 chances to build yourself up or tear yourself down.

If you call yourself names, doubt your abilities, and second-guess your decisions, you'll harm your performance (and most likely you'll also be risking your physical and psychological health). But the good news is, you can change the way you think.

Here are five exercises that will train your brain for happiness and success:

1. Differentiate between ruminating and problem-solving

Thinking about strategies that would help you overcome an obstacle is helpful, but imagining yourself unable to tolerate pain isn't productive. Whenever you find yourself thinking about something for an extended time, take a minute to think whether you're ruminating or problem-solving.

If you're actively solving or preventing problems, keep processing. But, if you're simply rehashing things that already happened or making catastrophic predictions about things you can't control, change the channel. Get up and do something to get your mind off the issue and keep your brain focused on more productive activities.

2. Give yourself the same advice you'd give to a trusted friend

If you're like most people, there's a good chance you're overly critical of yourself. But beating yourself up and magnifying your mistakes will only drag you down.

Studies have linked self-compassion to everything from improved psychological well-being and better body image to enhanced self-worth and increased motivation. So make it a habit to speak to yourself in the same way you'd speak to a trusted friend.


3. Label your emotions

Most people have an aversion to talking about or showing their feelings. As a result, many people have become quite distanced from their feelings, which makes it hard for them to even recognize how they're feeling in any given moment.

And when adults do label their feelings, they often do it in an indirect manner. Rather than saying, "I felt sad," someone might say, "I had a lump in my throat," or, "My eyes got watery." Or, instead of saying, "I am really nervous," someone might be more included to say, "I have butterflies in my stomach."

Spend a few minutes every day acknowledging your emotional state. Label your feelings and consider how those emotions are likely to affect your decisions.

Whether you're feeling sad about something in your personal life, or you're worried about something going on in the office, your emotions will spill over into other areas of your life if you aren't aware of them.

4. Balance your emotions with logic

Whether you're faced with a tough financial decision, or you're experiencing a family dilemma, you'll make your best decisions when you're able to balance your emotions with logic. When your emotions are running high, take steps to increase your rational thinking.

The best way to balance out your emotions is to create a list of the pros and cons of your choices. Reading over that list can help take some of the emotion out of the decision and equip you to make the best decisions.

5. Practice gratitude

Gratitude has been linked to a host of physical and psychological benefits, including happiness. One study even found that grateful people are 25% happier.

So whether you make it a habit to talk about what you're grateful for over breakfast every morning, or you write in a gratitude journal before bed, train your brain to look for the good in life. It could be the simplest, yet most effective way to boost your well-being.

Create a healthy mindset

The conversations you have with yourself have a profound effect on your life. If you want to reach your greatest potential, it's important to build your mental muscle. Exercise your brain every day and over time, you'll train your brain for happiness and success.

DOW at 20 611.86 high




Trump-effect-rally ... welcoming DOW to another new high ... everyday is a bull-market.

Over in KLSE ... we do rub-on little of the heat but not much significant movements ...say to 2000 level? We are waiting there ... for everyone to yell "BULL market"

Contrarian Strategies

Contrarian investing is a type of investment strategy distinguished by buying and selling against the grain of investor sentiment during a specific time. A contrarian investor enters the market when others are feeling negative about it and the value is lower than its intrinsic value. When there is an overarching pessimistic sentiment on a stock, it has the possibility of lowering the price so low, the downfalls and risks of the company's stock are overblown. Figuring out which distressed stocks to buy and selling them once the company recovers, thus boosting the stock value, is the major play for contrarian investors. This can lead to securities returning gains much higher than usual. However, being too optimistic on hyped stocks can have the opposite effect.

Read more: Contrarian Definition | Investopedia



Many contrarians have the view of the market as an eternal bear market. This does not necessarily mean they view the market as negative but keep a healthy skepticism as to how certain general investors feel about the market. Overly high valuations can lead to eventual drops when investors' expectations do not work out. The principles behind contrarian investing can be applied to individual stocks, an industry as a whole or even entire markets.
As DOW going up higher ... being a contrarian, I have reduced my position ... into 70% cash in hand now.

I have trained myself to be a contrarian ... after all, only 20% of them profit from markets in long-run. A crash in market or sector ... or our stocks could wipe off our profits. I m speaking from experience, of coz ...

Have a nice day as I will prefer go shopping now and read ... and have classes. Tonight going for a market-talk.
