Risk Appetite Lowest Ever Since 1982

Typically, the relief rally from such “deep panics” (4th time since 1981) ~ 10 - 15% from the lowest point. Research note from Credit Suisse.

Yesterday our Global Risk Appetite Index hit an all time low of -5.77. The previous deep panics were in August 1982, October 2002 and November 2008.

well that's "good" news for "cash is king" folks I suppose but examine the previous deep panic event, the market (DJ and MSCI in my review) retreated to about the prior lower level but now the market is still at the post-2009 high. my very layman theory is this(un)ochestrated global risk potential involving PIIGS debt risk, US debt risk and BRIC weakening (CN hard landing) is unprecedental and could mean <-6 on scale may happens??

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

Passengers - Go Watch It

Passengers. Brilliant story telling. Visionary yet believable. Like Martian, only better. Space travel, science, romantic, desolation, philosophical, mortality n its devastation, spectacular imagery. Being human n humane. 9.7/10
