Technical Analysis

George Kleinman in the book, "The New Commodity Trading Guide" on price action & TA
Does it really work? My 30 years of trading experience says it does. Solid
technical analysis is perhaps the only tool that can give the individual trader a
decent chance against the professionals. You might not have the research
capabilities of the commercial firms, but you do have the luxury of moving
faster than the big commercial operators because your trading size will not affect
price significantly. You are not stuck trading just one market (which might not
be moving). You can relax in the comfort of your home or office and analyze
your charts.
Pure technicians believe that the most important factor in predicting the
markets is price action. They don't look at crop size, export data, trade imbal-
ances, or employment numbers. They don't care if it's raining in Brazil or if the
head of the European Central Bank just made a speech hinting at an interest rate
rise. Technicians primarily care about price action.
This is not to say that technicians don't believe fundamentals move the
markets. They concede this fact. A technician might know that soybean prices
are rising because drought is devastating the Brazilian crop, but he or she will
also tell you that price will signal when the diminished supply has finally been
rationed by diminished demand—and this could happen long before the
drought has broken

The technician believes that all the pertinent fundamental information,
perhaps hundreds of bits of data impossible for any mortal to assimilate, will be
reflected in price and price action. In essence, the price action will reflect the
consensus of the market players far better than the mainstream fundamental
information available to the public trader. With this in mind, let’s look at two
classic chart patterns that possess significant predictive qualities: the breakout
and the head and shoulders

You are only as good as your last trade

So goes the saying. Mega trading losses even happen to the best of the 'Experts', even super speculators like George Soros can experience humungus losses from one trade. As small speculators, you are different from these corporations. They are trading with OPM (Other People's Money) and their capital base is large to absorb these losses. All else fails then they can turn and ask for a bailout form the government.

Moral of the Story: Don't go for broke, lest you become a statistic...

Over a long period in history, the statistics show that 90% of speculators in the commodity markets ed up losing all their money...

Gas Malaysia IPO

With only 30.tm of 333 m offer shares, it will be worth trying to apply for the IPO. RM520,000 can go a long way to try to make some money where a number plate for RM520,000, in my opinion is just plain irrational overexuberance (Alan Greenspan)...
