Me & You & A Dog Named Boo

As far as photos posted on Instagram go, they don't get much cuter than this. Tokyo, Japan-based mother Aya Sakai has been charting the adventures of her young son and his best friend, which just happens to be a French Bulldog, using the popular photo sharing app. Whether they're cuddling on the couch or watching tv on a cushion, the two just can't seem to get enough of each other. The relationship will remind you of the sweet 88-year-old grandmother and her cat, as well as Haru and Mina, those incredibly cute brothers growing up in Japan. Adorable beyond words!

Dali, thanks for this jewel.The bond between the two souls is just magic. How about indulging us with a few photos of your own darling, which should be about two or three years old by now.

The US debt ceiling will be most probably be settled and raised by this weekend,latest by Monday.The market has caught the act(poker game)and rallied before the fact (announcement).It will most likely to spike early next week before "Fat Mama" join in the chorus.I went short on a quarter position to add the rest most probably by next week.

If only our politicians were to be as loyal as our family dogs and cats and not fight day and night.And not to forget our tropical fishes too(good for feng shui).Have a nice weekend folks.

Hi Dali,

What is your take on the white knight in Silver Bird rescue forgetting the 150% profit condition?

According to the Edge on 7 Oct 2013: "The condition was inadvertently omitted from the original announcement"

While the spouses are fighting down to the wire,burning the midnight oil,the S&P futures are down nearly 14 pts.We took profits at 12 pts leaving some at the table.Let us enjoy the Kobe beef and wait for the relief rally which will come sooner than later.
bruno said…
Just went long usd/yen.Stops at 97.01 with target at 105.A break under 97.00 and usd/yen will be vulnerable to low 90's.Enjoy the spoils of the spouses fighting day and night.
bruno said…
The S&P from being down 16 pts to up 6 pts now.Street smarts or just plain lucky?Even my family dog can tell that the debt ceiling will be raise and there will be a rally in world stocks.Or else the world economy and stock markets will come down like rocks falling from the skies.

But am I brave enough to get long this market which is almost in uncharted territory.No way.I would rather let it go up as high as the moon and try to get short from there.Hey,12 pts is 3k,depending on how many contracts one has in a partial or full position.

Like I said many times before,being wrong most of the time and able to make money feels much better than being right and lose money most of the time.To me being right or wrong or hitting a home run is of no importance.Just having being stopped out on a 1 pic profit and I am a happy camper,just as long as the guy taking an opposite position do not take a single cent of my hard earn money.But of course,most traders know that losing is just part of the game.

As long as we are making money being wrong most of the time,we are still riding strong in the game.One of these days we will catch the big one and make a home run.So until then,we can sit and wait patiently under the pondok,waiting for the good variety durians to fall.

And to add icing to the cake our long usd/yen is in the money.Like I always said,the trading gods have a way of rewarding the hardworking and the brave.

Aussie has had all the time it needed to rally to .9700.It has been almost two months now since it rallied from around .8850.It is now around .9530.Just gone short the Aussie,betting for a double top.Stops at .9701.

Usd/Yen stops moved to breakeven at 98.25.
bruno said…
If our Aussie bet is correct then most probably our analysis of the Usd/Yen is wrong.We cannot hit an exacta/forecast at the same time on both trades,as these two usually go opposite directions.That is the reason the Usd/Yen stops moved to break even so early.
bruno said…
We just got stopped out in long Usd/Yen at breakeven.Also took profits on short Aussie for 30 pics profit.The Aussie is hanging tough and wants to go up.

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…

PUC - An Assessment

PUC has tried to reinvent itself following the untimely passing of its founder last year. His younger brother, who was highly successful in his own right, was running Pictureworks in a number of countries in Asia.

The Shares Price Rise & Possible Catalysts

Share price has broken its all time high comfortably. The rise has been steady and not at all volatile, accompanied by steady volume, which would indicate longer term investors and some funds already accumulating nd not selling back to the market.

Potential Catalyst #1

The just launched Presto app. Tried it and went to the briefing. Its a game changer for PUC for sure. They have already indicated that the e-wallet will be launched only in 1Q2018. Now what is Presto, why Presto. Its very much like Lazada or eBay or Alibaba. Lazada is a platform for retailers to sell, full stop. eBay is more for the personal one man operations. Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.

Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…

How Long Will The Bull Lasts For Malaysia

Are we in a bull run? Of course we are. Not to labour the point but I highlighted the start of the bull run back in January this year... and got a lot of naysayers but never mind:

p/s: needless to say, this is Jing Tian ... beautiful face and a certain kind of freshness in her looks and acting career thus far

I would like to extend my prediction that the bull run for Bursa stocks should continue to run well till the end of the year. What we are seeing for the past 3 weeks was a general lull where volume suddenly shrunk but the general trend is still intact. My reasons for saying so:

a) the overall equity markets globally will be supported by a benign recovery complemented by a timid approach to raising rates by most central banks

b) thanks to a drastic bear run for most commodities, and to a lesser extent some oil & gas players, the undertone for "cost of materials" have been weak and has pr…
