It has been a long hiatus and don’t worry, I’m still alive and kicking. A lot of things have changed (look who’s taken over as the President of America…) and I have even completed two semesters of university since my ORD last year. The reason of the lack of updates is mainly due to my really hectic (by really hectic, I mean REALLYYY HECTIC). On top of me making best effort to cope with school work, I also accomplished few things I’ve kick-start. Firstly, it is the new Instagram account I created with an identity of a 24 year old inspiring to become a Fund Manager by 30. As of writing, the account has managed to garner over 7,000 followers in just three months. Still, it would mean the world to me if you, as an avid reader of TheIA Blog, will give my social media account a follow. In future, I will be synchronizing the contents between this blog and my social media account. This means more updates right here 🙂 Details about the account will be at the end of this post.
Secondly, I’ve been trend and day trading (opening and closing of trades within the same day) since last year and have managed to build a good track record that I’m proud of. Markets I trade now are the FOREX market and Futures market. Futures is still new to me (Thank you Azrael for introducing me to it!) but learning this market has proved to be easier with my past experience in FX trading. This then led to the third item that I’ve been working on for the past 10 months – a startup fund. As Robert Kiyosaki once said, “The most important word in the world of money is cash flow. The second most important word is leverage.”. There are just too many myths out there about leveraging OTM (Other People’s Money). I’ll be sure to write a post about it, what is leverage, why you should have leverage in your endeavors, why you should not have it, who should use it, how to ensure you are safe leveraging OTM. Keep a look out for it.
Thirdly, I’ve managed to start a small private fund since last year and got some investment capital from my family and friends. I even moved on to starting another one with one of my good friend (HouTian Tan) and having it registered as a consulting company. Due to the heavy licensing and staffing requirements, we are pushing out our services as a product – automatic trades copying. So to speak, trading accounts will be hosted on my server and my program will automatically replicate all of my trades to investors’ own trading accounts. This is a new concept and has been favorably accepted by my clients so far.
Because of these, it has been really hard to update you guys on my progress despite thinking about it many times. And now that things are more anchored, I’ll be updating more often. Probably even my weekly performance if you guys are interested.
Once again, I will be really happy if you could give me follow on my new Instagram account and comment that you’re (proud to be) from TheIA Blog!
In the Instagram app, search for my account theia.blog or click on this link: https://www.instagram.com/theia.blog/
If you don’t have Instagram account but would like to open one, it’s free and super simple, just download Instagram from AppStore or Google Play. Then sign up with Facebook and you’re done! (Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook anyway, so you don’t really have to worry about the data privacy part)
Towards a richer living!
