It has been two years since I stopped blogging, and thinking of continuing again

2008-2009. It was a tough investing years for me. I lost some, and it thought me this basic principle. Buy low and sell high. It was the year that everything wasn’t doing so good for me, except for me getting married and having a daughter. I cant progress professionally in my work, my investment went sour and I must decide whether to follow my wife to Australia or not. Follow I did.

So, I stopped blogging and stopped looking at bursa. Gold is expensive and I have no money. Start afresh is a step I like to do, even though I have to sacrifice my work for family.

Coming back, I think I am a bit wiser. I learnt a lot on how to survive, it gives me insight as what constitutes good work and better family life. I understand now that money is important, but time is more important.

So I decide to blog again. Hope I can understand myself a bit more.

wk1Result is in. Those who select Arsenal players (Fabregas especially) will get max point. The rest tanked. You get result from unexpected players, like Shawcross, even Jason Koumas.

I am perplexed as to why the stock market is up, even though the retail consumers are not spending. US ppl are saving more, spending less, jobless at 10%, house price is down and stabilizing. I have been reading a lot on the net, a lot of bloggers are split view on this.

1. Many government can afford to let the economy to correct by itself. This is particularly obvious in US with their stimulus package, but closer to home, immediately after Najib became PM, the stock rise back up to 1000, obviously from instituitional investor money such as PNB, EPF and Tabung Haji. Foreign money is not in, individual investor like me are just cold. I dont know what to do, so I do nothing.

2. Foreign economy is still bad, not many demand. Looking at department of statistics Malaysia the look is not good. Manufacturing export falls, even the rubber / oil / palm oil export is down. The only thing is many Malaysian is still employed, and they probably work for the gomen.

3. Some even proposed that the stock market will rise a bit more, but the correction after this is even worse.

Just wait and see. Save some more.

Alarm bells: (On the official website, nubex.com)
1. There is no company details other than the office address.
2. The contact us has no other info except a form, and I am still waiting for the reply on my request for a brochure.
3. There are some stats of gold price, links to other websites such as emiratesgold, perthmint, e-dinar.
4. The menu cart is not done in https, which is poorly done.

Item 1 is of great concern. Item 2-4 are just showing what a poor website it is. But, regardless, selling gold bar is halal in Islam. The only thing is the authenticity of the gold bar, their certificate, how to verify the gold content.

Furthermore, now gold investment in Malaysia is not really a golden opportunity because even though US currency drops a lot, RM currency conversion is not really strong.
