screenshot-2020-10-08-at-12-11-42This post was originally posted here. This is Goh Jing Wei who is currently in the top 10 on the leaderboard, out of over 2,000 participants.

We did a quick lookup on his tournament portfolio here and he has a return of 30.4%!

We asked the questions that followed and this is what he had to say.

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?
Goh Jing Wei: Recently, I just reached the age which is eligible for trading. Therefore, I do not have years of experience in trading.

What’s your profession?
Goh Jing Wei: I am a student at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. (Course: International trade and business)

How did you start trading and what got you started?
Goh Jing Wei: I watched many Youtube videos and many traders sharing their trading process and strategies.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?
Goh Jing Wei: I have not started trading with my real money as I have just reached the eligible age of trading. I plan to do swing trading or position trading but I am still exploring the different options and strategies.

Then how do you usually determine entry for a particular trade?
Goh Jing Wei: I will research and find investments that have a high probability of large movements in the future. I will avoid investment which likely has small movements or fluctuations.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade?
Goh Jing Wei: When things have gone according to my plan and I believe it has reached the highest profit possible, I will exit my position.

Finally, what would you say to new participants & traders of this year’s tournament who want to trade well?
Goh Jing Wei: Only start trading once you are confident and understand things well. Trading without knowing what you are doing is the same as gambling.

But, it’s not over. FINAL ROUND will begin soon from 12th October to 23rd October, where the tournament’s Top 10 finalists will compete against each other. You may view more details of our tournament’s Final Round as well as their portfolios and trades here.

This post was originally posted here. This is Nicky with username @bomfa, who is currently top 3 on the leaderboard, out of over 2,000 participants.

We did a quick lookup on his tournament portfolio here and he has a return of 40.3%!

We asked the questions that followed and this is what he had to say.

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?

Nicky:  I have been trading the SG, HK, and US markets for around 10 years.

What’s your profession? 

Nicky: I am a Corporate Development Analyst.

How did you start trading and what got you started?

Nicky: I started trading due to my desire to achieve financial freedom as soon as possible. I aspire to start my own hedge fund one day.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?

Nicky: I keep a watchlist with both technical and fundamental indicators. When my buy signal is triggered, I enter into positions that are sized based on my risk appetite.

Then how do you usually determine entry for a particular trade?

Nicky: I typically use fundamental analysis to identify opportunities and then use technical analysis to enter a trade.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade? 

Nicky: I use technical analysis to exit a trade. Very often, I already set the target returns before I enter a trade.

Finally, what would you say to new participants & traders of this year’s tournament who want to trade well?

Nicky: I learnt about DLCs through the competition and I absolutely love it. To trade well, it is extremely important to be disciplined and have a trading plan that should be refined over time to maximize the probability of success.

But, it’s not over. FINAL ROUND will begin soon from 12th October to 23rd October, where the tournament’s Top 10 finalists will compete against each other. You may view more details of our tournament’s Final Round as well as their portfolios and trades here.

Interview With Our Top 10 Finalists Of SG’s Active Tournament

Interview With Our Top 10 Finalists Of SG’s Active Tournament

Interview with Top 10 of the Tournament Leaderboard: Kenny Chia.

This mini-interview series is to showcase some of the prominent participants of the tournament leaderboard and what propels them to be able to trade well.

screenshot-2020-10-05-at-15-29-25

This post was originally posted here. This is @kennychia, who is currently top 3 on the leaderboard, out of over 2,000 participants.

We did a quick lookup on his tournament portfolio here and he has a return of 42.2%!

We asked the questions that followed and this is what he had to say.

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?

Kenny: I have been trading for around 6 years. I mainly trade in the SG, US, and HK markets.

What’s your profession? 

Kenny: I am an undergraduate.

How did you start trading and what got you started?

Kenny: I started in the SG market with blue-chip counters and REITs. I got started after being inspired by the idea of financial freedom and passive income.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?

Kenny: I screen the price charts of counters and focus on those with clear trends or showing signs of a reversal. As opportunities do not come by that often, I tend to hold a concentrated position whenever I come across one.

Then how do you usually determine entry for a particular trade?

Kenny: I use simple support and resistance levels and moving averages to determine the optimal entry price.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade? 

Kenny: I exit the position once it reaches my target price or stop-loss price. I will have an initial target price and stop-loss price before entering the position but will review them over time and adjust them if necessary.  

Finally, what would you say to new participants & traders of this year’s tournament who want to trade well?

Kenny: Take this opportunity to learn and make as many mistakes as possible. You will find out what works and does not work for you.

But, it’s not over. FINAL ROUND will begin soon from 12th October to 23rd October, where the tournament’s Top 10 finalists will compete against each other. You may view more details of our tournament’s Final Round as well as their portfolios and trades here.

judge_nasser

1. We’ve all heard of Singapore Exchange. As the head of equity capital markets in SGX, could you share with us some of the milestones of the SGX that you’ve been involved in and are proud of?

I’ve been with SGX for nearly 15 years, and one of the highlights of my career here would be to have witnessed the growth of Catalist – from its inception in 2007 to what it is today – home to more than 200 homegrown and overseas companies.

I am encouraged to see that a total of S$4.5 billion had been raised by Catalist companies through the primary and secondary market to fund their development and growth.

2. Can you tell us more about the Catalist-board in SGX? 

Catalist was launched in November 2007 with a vision to provide high-growth companies access to capital fast and efficiently. Its sponsor-supervised regime with no prescribed quantitative criteria, such as market capitalisation and revenue, allows companies regardless of size and age to tap the capital market for growth.

Today, Catalist is home to more than 200 homegrown and overseas companies from diverse industries, many of which are household names well-known to consumers.

2. How does PrimePartner work with and help companies wanting to get listed on SGX in Singapore? 

We really do handhold clients through the listing process. To keep it simple to understand, there are key 3 main steps.

First, understanding the owners’ objectives, the management’s style and the company’s business model.

Next, actively manage the listing and due diligence process and exercising judgement in resolving the issues raised.

Finally, championing the company with both regulators and investors.

As for post-listing, we continue the engagement advising on compliance, and connecting clients with capital and opportunities.

3. We’re interested in your inspiring story: how did you get started in your career and how did you get to become CEO of PrimePartners today?

After graduating with a degree in Accountancy, started my career in corporate banking during the Asian financial crisis – a real-world crash course in credit analysis, loan management and corporate restructuring.

This is what Chicao had to say:

Tell me more about yourself and how did you get started in investing or trading?

I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2015. During my university time, I was captivated by the financial market and was curious of what caused the market to move. I applied to many firms for a trading role and I managed to get an opportunity to join as an assistant trader for one of the largest brokerage firms in Singapore.

Over the course of the two years, I managed to trade in some of the most volatile periods, e.g. Brexit and 2016 US Election. It is through those rites of passages that I grow to fully respect the adage that the market is always right!

Tell me more about yourself and how did you get started in investing or trading?

Like most of the people, I am a normal employee who works by the day from 9 to 6 in the financial industry. During my free time, I would blog occasionally at http://www.foreverfinancialfreedom.blogspot.com to journal my thoughts on topics that are of my interests, i.e usually catered for investing strategy, portfolio management or personal finance. I am married with two young kids aged 4 and 1.

I started investing sometime in 2010 not long after I started working and have been trying to fine tune my investing style to fit my needs.
