“I just want to invest… what does these investment terms even mean?”

investment terms

Investment is such a loaded word. It covers a wide area, I guess similar to the word ‘science’. If you’re not from that world, reading content about it is likely to make you confused at some point or another. You need A to understand B to understand C to understand D. This is why beginners find investing intimidating in the beginning.

What I’m going to attempt in this article is to kind of explain those investment terms using analogies, examples, and memes. I’m covering: Technical analysis, fundamental analysis, hedge, arbitrage, ROI, equity, options, futures, IPO, ICO, bull and bear market, and pump-and-dump.

Disclaimer: not a financial expert. If any of my personal understanding below is wrong, please comment and I’ll edit.

4 Things Guys Can Do For Women

Things Guys Can Do For Women

I don’t shout out this fact often, but I used to work at an international women’s rights organisation. I can answer most questions you have on women’s human rights, or at least point you in the right direction.

Women, in general, earn less than men, retire/stop working earlier than men, and has a longer retirement period to worry about (longer life expectancy). This post is written for the male reader in mind, but I invite everyone to do their part.

Here are 4 things guys can do for women in their lives.

How I Will Be Managing My Money During Trump Presidency

 money during Trump

Like many people around the world, I’m disappointed by Trump’s win in the U.S. elections. Personal reasons aside, what’s done is done. But as it stands, the ripple effect of Trump’s presidency will be felt worldwide, even for us Malaysians who literally live halfway across the world.

My personal opinion is that Trump’s selfish America-first privileged white people-first economic plan won’t work, and even if it did, it would be to the expense of the rest of us global citizens. A group of 370 economists – including not one, but eight Nobel-prize winners think that his plan is crap, too.

Still. If we can’t change his plan, we can still plan around it, until a better U.S. president comes along. This is how I plan to manage my money during Trump presidency for the next four years. I divided this post into three aspects of money management: spending, investing and earning money.
