GK Goh Foreign Exchange Trading

About a month ago, I have attended the GK Goh Forex Trading workshop and brought back with me some basic knowledge on the basics of Forex Trading.

One will buy or sell currecy against another at a specific exchange rate.

The major currencies traded in the world are:

USD - US Dollar
GBP - British Pound
EUR - Euro
JPY - Japanese Yen
CHF - Swiss Franc

Some of the terms you need to know before trading:
Base and Second Currency - EUR / USD

The currency in transaction is always the base currency. We always buy or sell the base currency. But profit will be calculated on second currency. So in the above case, profits will be calculated on USD and not EUR.

Bid rate (The price on the left-hand side) - The price at which you can sell the base currency.

Offer rate (The price on the right-hand side) - The price at which you can buy the base currency.

An important pattern to take note: Candlestick pattern.

Candlestick is a leading indicator that shows moods, emotions and actions of the market. They are divided into two parts: Bullish patterns (show up after a pullback) and bearish patterns (show up a rally).

Long range candles will mean that the buyers and sellers are aggressive while narrow range candles will mean that little price movement will likely to represent consolidation.

Binni Ong, one of the speaker of the workshop. She is a very experienced investor in the finance industry using instruments such as stocks, futures, options, forex and commodities.

Demo Experience
At first when I first started playing the forex trade demo, I was like at a loss of how to buy or sell the currency as there are quite a few options where we can choose:

Limit Order - Users who wish to submit Limit orders that will be executed at a specific price can do so from the Instrument Panel (Currency Panel).

Stop-Loss Order - Users can submit orders to buy or sell once the price reaches a specified price, known as the Stop price. Stop orders are used to limit the loss / protect a profit on existing positions.

Stop-Limit Order - Users who wish to combine the features of both a Stop-Loss and Limit order can do so using a Stop-Limit order. Once the stop price is reached, the Stop-Limit order is placed to buy or to sell at a specified price.

***

Did not use any of the above on the demo. Seems quite complicated as I need to key in a limit price. So I stick to the normal "GTC" - Good Till Cancel where orders that are submitted at a predefined price and remain in the queue until executed or cancelled by the user.

My heart is like the chart. It goes up and down as the price goes. At first, I was very Kiasu. When I started to lose money, I will immediately sell away all my shares. But after a few times, I decided to take a risk, I'm not resigned to the fact that I am losing money. So I just leave it till I make profit.

And it really worked, I managed to win back whatever I had lost. Keep a cool head and monitor the market.

Tips on investing

- The best way is to buy low, sell high.

- Hold your shares for a longer term basis, ignore the short-term fluctuation. Over the longer period, the price of your shares will be appreciate.

- How much to invest: The greater the amount of money, the greater is the risk.

- Do not panic when you lost money, the market will recover.

mioTV US TV Marathon

Arriving at Naumi Hotel after lunch-ing with Peishi, HP and Claire.


Look forward to spending our day at hotel relaxing. Yesterday's party had drained away half of my energy away, I need to relax myself and not be involved in any high-energy required activity.

And catching a TV marathon will be perfect for me where I can settle down by the tv and watch it for hours.

With Peishi.

Yummy refreshment awaiting us. Argh, lucky I did not take a heavy lunch (:

Taking a look at the boutique hotel. This living room area will be where our screening of the TV marathon will be held.

A comfy and cosy place indeed.

Woo, I swear I really wish to jump up the bed and sleep through my day. It looked even more comfortable than my bed.

Getting ready for the marathon.

Yeah hey, it's starting. Light off now.

We watched a total of 6 new US titles:

Hart Of Dixie

Welcome to HART OF DIXIE, set in the lovely town of BlueBell, Alabama, where the neighbors take care of one another, the mailman knows your name, there's a parade every Tuesday ... and no one has ever seen the likes of Dr. Zoe Hart. Zoe feels the culture shock of her new surroundings immediately but the real shock comes when she learns that the doctor who invited her to BlueBell has passed away and left her with his half of the medical practice. His old-school partner, Dr. Brick Breeland, is determined to chase her out of town and his daughter, southern belle Lemon Breeland, is only too happy to help. Starring Rachel Bilson (The OC)

Once Upon A Time

Emam Swan is shocked when Henry the son she gave up years ago turns up in desperate need of her help. Henry believes that Emma is Snow White and Prince Charming's missing daughter who sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen's curse. Of course Emma doesn't believe a word, but when she returns Henry to his hometown of Storybrooke, she suspects that this town may be more than it seems. Storybrooke is a magical place where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don't remember who they once were – including the Evil Queen who is now Henry's foster mother.

a
Happy Ending

The series revolves around the lives of a group of friends whose group is rocked when the couple that brought them together, Alex and Dave, break up. This leaves the rest of the group (Max, Brad, Jane and Penny) in an awkward position of either trying to stay together as friends or having to choose sides. This hilarious series stars Elisa Cutbert (24)

Revenge

Welcome to the Hamptons, a glittering world of incredible wealth and privilege, where smiles hide secrets – and nothing is colder than revenge. When sexy Emily Thorne moves to town, everyone wonders about the new girl, but she knows everything about them, including who they are and what they did to her family years ago. Now, one by one, she's going to make them pay. Emily's main target is Victoria, a powerful woman who holds the key to Emily's past ... and perhaps her future. No matter how guarded the people in the Hamptons are, they can't keep the truth out forever. Starring Emily Vancamp (Brothers and Sisters, Everwood) and Madeline Stowe (Last of the Mochicans)

2 Broke Girls

A lot of young girls move to New York City to "make it." Max and Caroline are just trying to make their rent. In this fun, outrageous comedy series written by Emmy® Award winner Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City) and white-hot stand-up comedian Whitney Cummings, two girls from very different backgrounds -- Max, poor from birth, and Caroline, born wealthy but down on her luck -- wind up as waitresses in the same colorful Brooklyn diner and strike up an unlikely friendship that could lead to a successful business venture. All they need to do is come up with $250,000 in start-up expenses. Starring Kat Jennings (Thor)

American Horror Story

The story focuses on a family who move to a decrepit mansion in Los Angeles. Little do they know, this once-noble home is haunted. "American Horror Story" revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The All Star cast features Dylan McDermott (The Practice) as "Ben Harmon," a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as "Vivien Harmon," Ben's wife; Taissa Farmiga as "Violet," the Harmon's teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as "Constance," the Harmon's neighbor; Evan Peters (One Tree Hill) as "Tate Langdon," one of Ben's patients; and Denis O'Hare (The Good Wife) as "Larry Harvey."

***

Every of the show is equally good. But of all, I like Once Upon a Time the most, fairytale story is always the best. Watching the first episode is definitely isn't enough for me, I gonna carry on watching the drama.

Have you guys already catch the US drama, which of it is your favourite???
