Stock market as an unregulated online casino?



The two casinos in Singapore are  regulated by the CRA, with restrictions on locals such as entry levy and background checks. I think they are some who take trading as an online casino.

I was following a few forums, and was quite surprised by the interest shown in penny trading. There are few observations that shown the recklessness of investors and the fact that they treat the stock market as a casino.

1) Many of the posts are not backed by TA or FA (if there is any FA to begin with anyway).

2) When the price of a penny does run, instead of taking some profits off the table, many are screaming a higher target price. Many do not realized the Law of gravity applies in stock market too.

3) When price start to correct from their peak, many new forummers seem genuinely surprised or disappointed. I mean, I do not know how much a penny can run, whether it is a 2 baggers or 10 baggers, but as it goes up, I will be very wary of the risk-reward profile is constantly changing.

4) Penny trading attracted a lot more attention, many are looking for instant gratifications.

5) They believe if the price fall, after they buy it, they make a wrong decision, and if the price rises, they have made a right a decision. This is a myth Peterlynch wants us to be aware of. For this statement to be true, you must be buying at the bottom and selling at the peak. If you can do that, you beat Warren Buffet hands down, and I think he will need to learn from you.

  1. Better yet, check your chosen online casino platform first before signing in. Why not try a free account? Big starter’s deposit is a no-no! Aside from bonuses that will benefit you the most, look for as much information on the internet that you can find out about the online casino you are thinking to register in (customer reviews will help you with this). Folks, always remember to make it a real art to research the right online casino for you, OK?
    Have fun!
