I started trading in my uni days and burnt 15k USD. Painful lesson but honed my psychology somewhat.
Then I decided to go for something more conservative and started investing in November 2014. Unfortunately, I followed a few positions of others but was not doing well on sizing and got burnt.
There on, I figured I had to do my own due diligence and started learning on my own.
Stumbled onto Fifth Person for organising and presenting materials in a more easier to digest way, and started my own journey of learning via reading and chatting with like minded people.
I'm still doing okay (overall positive) but still considered myself in learning phase. I do admit I use technical analysis to pick entry and exits though.
I'm heavily in Singapore markets, and exposed to US and HK (and maybe UK, Japan and Aus someday).
