Dr Chan’s newsletter for August:

Dr Chan’s newsletter for August: 上个月我做了一次半年回顾, 指出股市有波幅却无方向, 同时我也指出7 月份与8 月份会出 现炒业绩期的反弹。 果然7 月份股市再度造好, 海峡指数一度回升至3018 点, – 很接近4 月份 的高位3037 点。 目前,大市正在重演今年 2 月份开始至 4 月份结束的炒业绩期的反弹,今年全年,大市仍会 处於一个有波幅却无方向的年头,因此偶尔炒炒短线也不错,今年我很幸运地捕捉到两次炒业绩 的短期升势。 我的所谓「短期炒卖」实际上至少也持有股票一两个月,这是我自己的「短炒」定义,对另一 些人而言,持股两个月已是长期投资,「即日鲜」才算是短炒,我鼓励长期投资,我自己也通过 长期投资获利不少。当然,我也不会反对短炒,不反对「即日鲜」,股市是各师各法。实际上, 缺少了短炒,整个证券业就不存在,人人像我那样长期投资,股票经纪吃甚么?今日,全球金融 市场已成了一个超级大赌场,你不赌,别人会代你赌,你老老实实地存钱於银行,银行却将你的 钱拿去赌,赌输了,银行破产,你的存款也没有了。 华人生性好赌,西方国家的股民比例远低於东方,假以时日,新加坡交易所必然成为世界上 最赚钱的上市交易所之一。 也因为华人生性好赌,澳门赌业的营业额早已超越美国的赌城拉斯维加斯,现在,多只澳门 赌股股价表现都非常好,屡创金融海啸后的新高,新加坡的云顶也值得长期投资。 中国温加宝总理稳定内外需的言论持续推动中国内地股市,上海综合指数已上升 10%以上。 另一方面美国联邦储备局主席伯南克(Ben … Continue reading
