Unveiling the Secret of Tick Reading

Post removed... sorry guys.

Why always last minute.. here is the fix.

Gosh! What a timely article, amid the rush of filing (or e-filing rather) our income tax.
I found this article is not only about motivation talk but also related to emotion control.
Hope it can benefit us all.

Procrastinate Procrastination - 6 Easy Steps
Author: Dan Ohler

“I’m going to make those marketing calls. Yup, tomorrow I will.”
“Dang, there’s the alarm. I’ll hit the snooze button – just one more time.”
“I’m going to start an exercise program. I’ll look into it next week.”
“I’ll get that GST report done – one of these days.”
“I’d really like to tell her how I feel about what she said to me. But not now. Maybe there will be a good time later – maybe.”
“Let’s get together for a visit. I’ll call you one of these days.”

Do you allow yourself to get sucked-in to these thoughts and actions, or lack of action now and then? I do, or did, or won’t anymore.

The more I chose these putting-off thoughts and actions, the more immobilized I became. When I chose to do that, I felt inadequate, frustrated, unworthy, and then rushed or panicked. The next emotional “trip” was blame, guilt, or anger – maybe all three. My situation was because of somebody or something else – not my fault.

I don’t know about you, but those feelings don’t seem champion-like. Those are not feelings that I want to embrace.

If I could give you easy steps to procrastinate procrastination so you can feel energized, worthy, productive, happy, and successful, would it be of value to you? If so, read on.

Procrastination is proof that we can postpone our happiness, dreams, and success until another time. We hope and wish that something will magically happen, so our lives will finally be amazing and incredible. Procrastination is a pathetic excuse for not attempting, succeeding, learning, or growing. It’s a pathetic excuse for not using our potential NOW, for not living NOW. Yet many of us procrastinate on a regular basis.

The psychological payoffs for procrastination are immense. We:
- avoid doing things we perceive to be fearful or uncomfortable
- eliminate risk and avoid change
- can be critical of others and use their inadequacies as justification for our own inactivity
- blame others or the world for our circumstances and results
- win sympathy from others and feel sorry for ourselves
- waste our days, weeks, and years agonizing inside about things we didn’t do
- justify sloppiness or incompetent work because “I just didn’t have enough time”
- avoid success and the perceived responsibilities.

Procrastinating procrastination involves conscious awareness of our actions (or inactions) and making new conscious choices. There are only two choices.

1. Do something so it is “done.” Then you can fully experience the feelings of pride, joy, exhilaration, wonder, awe, and great learnings. These are in-the-moment NOW feelings. The outcome may not always be as you pictured it, however there is always a great lesson when we look for it.

2. Don’t do something, because it is not important now and is therefore “undone.” Accept this without any feelings of guilt, anxiety, or remorse.

Here are 6 easy steps to procrastinate procrastination. Do them, or procrastinate – your choice. Decide for yourself how good it feels.
** Note: this next part took me a few hours to write because I had things to do with each step.

1. Take 15 minutes ONLY and do one thing you really want to do; i.e. a walk, play with your child, bubble-bath, reflect on things for which you are grateful, read a really good book (like mine). Focus your attention only on your experience and the great feelings. You are an amazing human being!!
** Excuse me; I’m going outside for a run with my dog, Tip.

2. Do something that you have been putting off. Start now! You’ll find the task is not as bad as you perceived. Choose to enjoy the project and especially the feeling of accomplishment, or movement in a desired direction.
** By gosh, that feels good to complete that GST report.

3. Ask yourself, “What is the worst thing that could happen if I do this?” Usually, the perceived fears or challenges are insignificant compared to what you can gain.
** Although I was afraid to ask Carol about our conversation, I did. I learned I had misunderstood. She was not upset at me. She was frustrated because of her own procrastination. She’s doing something about it now, just as I’ve done.

4. If you find yourself being critical, blaming, or sympathetic of others, ask yourself, “Would I want others to do this to me?”
** I will not allow my critical thoughts about him to destroy our working relationship. I am going to see him, now, to talk about this head-to-head and heart-to-heart. He’s a great leader, a wonderful man, and thank goodness he’s not a copy of me. I will clearly set my boundaries in regard to what I am willing to do.

5. Evaluate your commitments. Are you stupendously prepared? Have you invested the time to do the job in an exceptional way, fully utilizing your abilities and talents?
** I get to practice that presentation one more time. Now I know I’m ready!

6. Gauge your self-talk. Ensure it is positive and supportive. “I should do this.” “I must do that.” These debilitating mental conversations are an attack on your self-fullness. Be proactive rather than reactive.
** I will visit my neighbour this afternoon. I’ll easily finish this article today. Today is a fantastically productive day for me.

Will any or all of these steps work for you?

If you want to be a champion, take ownership of your life and act now – not tomorrow, NOW! You’ll like how it feels.

When you act in ways that allow you to feel really good, you’ll find you can be, do, or have anything you want. It’s the Law of Attraction – and it works.

The Star : Spanner in our WiMAX rollout works?

Looks like somebody made a blunder here in Bolehsia on 2.3GHz vs. 2.5GHz, who is that? I am not smart enough to figure that out. MR loud mouth Ken Yek, please tell us.

KUALA LUMPUR: Certification for WiMAX equipment on the 2.3GHz spectrum could be delayed longer than expected and this will impact the country’s rollout of wireless broadband services using the ­technology.

Assalamulaikum. I am Syariah (err. investment only)

Reminder for myself:
Just entered ING Ekuiti Islam yesterday using my EPF fund. my projected costs are: Entry fee 3.5%, Annual management fee 1.55% and KWSP dividends loss 5.8% (based on 2007 pay-out), total = 10.85%. Using that as a benchmark, I will be happy if it can give me annualized return of 15%~20% for the 1st year.
The chart below is hand-made by me, you can't find it anywhere else. :D

As strange as it can get, news headlines nowadays.

It would be unlikely to see these kind of news headlines on main stream medias pre-2008 general elections, all quoted from The Star:
27/Apr Return Cash, Khir's wife told
27/Apr Hishammuddin urged to quit over keris issue
27/Apr Copy Jews and Chinese, Malays told
What do you think?

YTLLAND Look Back and Look Forward

This is a very special counter for me. No, I didn't make big bucks out of it. I was naive back then, with zero TA knowledge. It was just more than a year ago, I followed some savvy investor's call, but without any entry or exit strategy. As you can see my entry and exit from the chart, no doubt made some quick bucks (feel like superman back then), but I missed the bull run of 2007 of this counter. Would I exit it back then, had I been equipped with TA? Probably yes, and I would probably enter again at 1.35 level and took the ride. Anyway, that was past. And now, I think this baby still owe me something. kekeke. I want to see will it get any support next week at 1.13 level. If yes, probably I will enter at 1.15 level. Let's see. It has better be good, am drooling already. :))

KLCI Weekly Chart Review 080425

Now we wait for the MACD line to cross signal... and if it is supported by higher volume next week, can start party lah. :))

Getting tired of choppy waves, need to park your yatch and fish ashore?

Public Bank will be launching this gold investment scheme very soon. Check out more details here. I understand Maybank is also offering similar investment scheme.

Is it a good investment vehicle or not? It is very much depending on:
1) Spot gold price movement.
2) MYR / USD exchange rate.

Strategy will of course be investing it at best spot price when MYR is at its strongest position (ideally) against USD.

Maybe I can use this for short term trading platform on gold.. kekeke.

What do you do when you can't find a reasonable counter?

This evening I had been surfing charts for potential good one, but most of the charts I saw were overbought. What does that tell you? Pull-back or correction is due lah! Common sense, isn't it? Will track down this KLCI baby whether it is a pull-back or distribution, then decide what to do. wa ha ha ha.

Talk Only Mah!: KLCI Review 080327 & Next Action Plan

Indeed talk only, no TRADE action. BURSA MALAYSIA KLSE's KINSTEL have jumped from 1.16 since I last blogged about it to 1.33 as at 18/Apr/2008 closing. I was just not following my plan. :Bang Wall:

Is today a good day to trade?

KLCI has got some room to move up (uphill battle though), while DJ and HS are facing downward pressures. That will make KLCI extremely difficult to read. Not straight forward, hey, when's the last time it was straight forward? ha ha ha

Itchy hands need something to play with :D

Entry Price : 0.625
Cut Loss Price : 0.61
Exit Price : No idea for now.

Hicom-Chevrolet launches Chevrolet Optra Magnum sedan...

I am not picking on Hicom-Chevrolet, but I do think their marketing people suck. Comon, very dark, old fashioned, unattractive car launch event. You might need to refer to UMW and learn a trick or two.

Read Chart Like Reading Green

Golfers who read green delicately are good golfers, because they are serious in making the putt. People who don't play golf are thinking putting is silily simple. How wrong is that! Reading green is not as simple as it seems. Golfers need to be experienced enough to judge the slope, the break, and the ridge (dear traders, does this sound similiar to the Tides / Waves / Ripples?) Let's not forget about the green condition of the day; is it dry? wet? firm? soft? sandy? grainy? and etc.. (similar to traders trying to figure out market sentiment and psychology at that very moment, and I say moment as it can differ from moment to moment).

KLCI 080415

Today's surge of KLCI definitely caught me by surprise. I believe 2 plantation giants Sime Darby and IOI contributed greatly to the surplus. I noticed KLCI were being discreetly purchased these few days. My chart still show downward moving KLCI, but could there be something fundamental that might prove my chart wrong? Let's see if it will be bounced back again by EMA26 tomorrow...

Immelman claims Masters title

OK, Tiger, try another year for the grand slam... but 2nd place perhaps is just not good enough for you I guess. Immelman, nice chap, always enjoy watching his game. Hard working player, Simple, classic swing. I knew he would make it big one day. Congratulations to Immelman!

KLCI Review 080414

Break away gap! Breached EMA12d! Down-trending Stochastic! Very bearish indeed. Was obsessed with higher low, but forgot a potential lower high was already forming on 2/Apr...

It's Masters Week again!

It is one of the majors, personally I think it is major of the majors. It will be perfect if this major is placed later part of the year :D Who will win this time? Can Tiger live up to the expectation of his supporters? Or a new champion will emerge this year (as first time winner Zach Johnson last year)? Pretty excited to find out that.

Yummy Yummy Nasi Lemak

I tell you ar, over here, nothing compares to this No.1 national food of Malaysia - Nasi Lemak. Its literal translation is "Fat Rice". It is actually the rice cooked in coconut milk... tasty but sinful. High cholesterol mah. The chili paste plays a critical role in determining whether a Nasi Lemak is "Hot" or "Not" (call it the soul of the Nasi Lema). The fried peanuts and Ikan Bilis, I tell you ar, the crispier the better, otherwise will let down the whole sensation of tasting this wonder meal. Some of the upgraded Nasi Lemak will be served with curry chicken, mutton, beef.. I am drooling already lah. Tak boleh tahan dah. You may find my English is weird, no choice, my English is with Nasi Lemak accent mah.. wa ha ha ha ha.

KLCI & FKLI 080401

Hmmm.. chart still indicates overbought. EMA12d was almost "touched". Volume is lower. Tomorrow will be a test, considering T+3 of 27/Mar hi volume.

Flying Penguins, wa ha ha!

Gold Rush Update

Lower High? Lower Low? April Fool? Good luck goldies.

Words borrowed from Dr. Alexander Elder:

Trading is so exciting that it often makes amateurs feel high ...Nobody can get high and make money at the same time.
