Re: How to Avoid Falling Into Scams?

If the deal is too good to be true, then it is probably not. I will ask myself - if it is such a great deal, why is this person inviting me to invest instead of investing himelf. Do not invest out of greed or even kindness (because it is a close friend who is recommending the product). And never put...

Re: How Best to cover Your Medical Needs?

Hi Wanderful, Many diseases can be directly or indirectly due to hypertension. So you are right the exclusion is quite broad. The insurer is trying to reduce their risks. However, there are many other diseases that can cost tons of money to treat e.g. cancers. So it is still wise to accept the polic...

Hi Dennis, Pardon my ignorance. If we use CFD to short a share e.g. share A at $2.00, thus if 1 lot it will cost us $2000 without any leverage. If share price goes down to $1.50 and we buy back at $1500, we make a profit of $500. Does it mean we will get back a total of $2500 (profit plus initial ca...

In addition, we should also increase our investment assets much more than our personal use assets even when we are richer.

Also don't forget the needy among us too.

Thanks Dennis for guiding us along.
