Two years ago, I wrote a short blog post “the market is dropping – what to do”. The Straits Times Index had fallen below 2,650 points and the mood was grim. Today the situation could not be more different. With stocks at record highs is a new crash coming?
As I was walking by an HSBC branch the other day I saw an advertising banner promoting taking a personal loan for a dream vacation. Are they serious?
The internet is full of personal finance blogs, but not all are created equal. What makes a personal finance blog interesting? The answer to this question is always subjective, but for me it is: Good and personal stories, helpful advice, solid analysis and fresh new ideas presented in a clear format without too much intrusive advertising.
The bookshops are full with meters of shelf space containing personal finance and investing books. Unfortunately many of them simply are not worth their money. However, there are 3 time-tested classics which are my absolute favorite books on personal finance and investing.
