Every market addict is different.

One market addict is glued to his screen. He monitors CNBC or Bloomberg’s quotes before and after he opens and closes his eyes every single trading day.  Another market addict barely looks at the market, checks prices of certain stocks for five minutes prior to market open and close and resumes his daily business.  One buys and sells hundreds of stocks without knowing the company’s numbers.  Another thoroughly reads every news and financial report related to the company.  Sometimes, they are both one and the same.

Whether you are an active trader scalping the financial markets, or an investor looking with a wider time frame to buy and hold investments riding strong industry growth rates, we are all in the markets with one goal in mind: Make the most return for the littlest risk available.

Core Investment Philosophy

Dimsum Trader understands the differences of methodologies traders and investors both use in order to make a killing from the markets. None is superior over another. Here, I believe that the best way to approach the markets is to listen and invest in growth stories (fundamentals), but to time them using the overall market cycle and sentiment of the public supply and demand (technicals).

I will incorporate key influential people in the overall investment philosophy of this blog.

1.) Michael Moe’s emphasis on finding megatrends and investing in them.

2.) William O Neill’s emphasis on finding companies using the CANSLIM method.

3.) Jeff Cooper’s Hit and Run strategies in finding high probability stock setups.

4.) John Murphy’s classic charting techniques.

I am primarily focused on the following equity markets:

1.) Hongkong

2.) Philippines


I wish to provide you with actionable advice and up-to-date market commentaries to give a better informed decision over your equity investments. With the myriad of stock sites and newsletters abound, I hope that you find me as a reliable companion helping you to navigate your own personal way to wealth.

Your fellow market addict,

Dimsum Trader
