Tina, stay-at-home-mother: grows from an “overconfident” newbie to a “rational” investor

The 9th anniversary story of Futubull users we would like to share today is about a new mom named Tina. She made her first foray into the stock market only a year ago, but successfully transformed herself from a green hand who followed the herd to a discreet and rational investor with her own investment logic.
As a mom, Tina has also set up a finance management plan for her baby born this year, hoping to save up a fortune as the baby grows up.
Used to be an “average but confident” newcomer trapped in herd mentality
At the beginning of 2020, Tina just closed her own business for good and, faced with the raging Covid-19 pandemic, she had no choice but to stay at home. Like many others who had plenty of time to kill during lockdown, Tina got intrigued by investing and making money. But by then, she was just an overconfident newbie who made quite a few silly mistakes.
“For a start, I did what other immature investors had done: bought at the top and sold at the bottom, held only those hot stocks and dreamed about turning rich overnight. I didn’t think much or do any review, because all I wanted was to make quick money,” said Tina. Yet the market trend changed dramatically in February, 2021, when the performances of growth stocks and value stocks switched, causing her portfolio to lose 30% of its value in a week. In retrospect, she confessed that “it felt like falling from heaven to hell with my face down. The excruciating loss made me deeply reflect on my operations.”
Learning from that hard lesson, Tina made up her mind to study investment from the basics. “I think what’s good about me is that I’m a constant learner.” She spotted numerous insightful articles by seasoned investors on Futubull community, who shared their investment philosophy and lent a helping hand to newcomers who struggled to build their knowledge base. Futubull also offers free courses for green hands, helping them learn investment in a systematic way, including basics such as how to value a company and diversify portfolios.
Furthermore, Tina joined several training camps offered by Money Plus, which taught her knowledge about wealth distribution, money-making tactics on the capital market and asset allocation plans for female investors.
“Futubull has taught me a lot. It gives me an opportunity to learn from investment masters and helps me grow. It’s more than a stock-trading app. I can feel Futubull takes an effort to guide investors, telling them about proper investment attitude and providing comprehensive investment knowledge and science-based approaches for them. It’s dedicated to thriving with its clients,” said Tina.
Tina’s growth stage: building her own investment pyramid
As she got deeper knowledge in investing, Tina fought her way as a mature investor, holding stocks and funds in the meantime and gaining reasonable returns within her capability step by step. Gradually, she understood what Warren Buffet meant when he said, “Time is the friend of the wonderful company, the enemy of the mediocre.”
“Now I’d put a greater emphasis on two types of companies that have a wider moat. The first ones are highly-recognized companies that cannot be changed, such as Hermès, LV, and Moutai, a household Chinese liquor brands. The other category is made up of leading companies that can change the world, like apple and Tesla.”
In terms of operations, Tina has become more prudent than she used to be. For instance, she closed her positions of Tesla at 100% yield. “I’m quite decisive in making exits. I’ll leave without hesitation if I feel it’s the right moment.”
Tina designed a “Happiness Plan” for herself in the investment pyramid, perking herself up by buying things she likes. “Apart from managing our finances, girls all enjoy shopping. If I stashed away all the money I earned, I wouldn’t be happy. But with this ‘happiness plan’ I’ll work harder on investing to make more money and reward myself with things I want.”
Her family members are also part of her investment pyramid. “I have a ‘fire plan’ included in the pyramid, too. I hope my husband won’t be so busy when I achieve my financial freedom. Instead, he can take me and the baby to travel around the world, experiencing exotic lifestyles and seeing something totally different. Since we cannot earn money beyond our perception, we need to see the bigger world before we play big.”
Setting a financial management plan for her newborn baby
2021 matters a lot to Tina for another reason—her baby was born!
“My baby’s zodiac is ox, making it a good pair with Futubull. I have redeemed many Futubull mascots and placed them around the TV. My baby will have a lot fun with them,” joked Tina.
After giving birth, Tina turns into a stay-at-home mom. “I now do financial planning while taking care of my love because good financial management matters a lot to a thriving family. As I have a penchant for managing finances, I also set up a financial management plan for my baby.”
Tina contributes a fixed amount to 3 funds on Futubull for her baby every month, hoping to save him a fortune when he grows up.
On occasion of the 9th anniversary of Futu, Tina said, “I hope Futu can continue to thrive and lead the industry, growing into a company that works for every investor and enables different means of payment so that everyone can manage their finances at ease here. Plus, I wish all investors on Futubull can earn big money. Finally, Futu, happy 9th anniversary!”

MooMoo Then and Now

The advancements MooMoo has made in 18 months is about like going from an Atari to a PS5 in that same amount of time. Night to day changes made and all for the better.
There was a time when people would post only stocks ticker, short and sweet, just to give everyone a heads up or a ”Hey look at this one!” “You might like it!”
Banter was to the point,with some maybe just asking a question or clarification. You were lucky if there was 20 posts the entire day. Now there’s that many in a few seconds in Memes alone. It seemed as if everyone had never invested or were less than 6 months into it. The ones that had any experience were latched onto or they made sure they took in what experience they let out. I, being a Sat-Guru, answered questions or pointed out other factors that could affect their predicted outcomes, which has become a great honor for me to continue doing, reaching thousands around the world. Touching the lives of so many people or putting out ideas to change their views on the world and teaching with kindness and respect, sometimes even with fun.
The stock market will not accept the weak so the more knowledge that gets posted, the more prepared we are for the manipulation.MooMoo became a big part of this movement. Its a main force in grasping how the market works and it forces one to accept brutal truths about life. One of these brutal truths is that whenever money is involved, there will be those who try to get an advantage by either legal or illegal means. As investors, we cannot control or change how the big boys play the game. Understanding that manipulation can work for or against you, depending on your position, helps remove worry about these sometimes unethical or illegal practices. And the more people in the game, on your side is the best way possible to beat the market. But there will be the ones around who want to invest in stocks that have the highest risk of losing and can have the highest profit in the market, aka day traders and short-term investors, so i figure its best they have the best teacher for that also.(If that is teachable);). I will protect as many as i can but you will always have the gunslingers or high risk takers believing the way they invest is different and they will beat the system, until they dont then that gives them someone to blame besides themselves.
So that brings us to the present time. Just look at all the changes and how far MooMoo has come. Almost unbelievable. Theres not an investing app or social media app in my opinion thats better than this one. People will learn more here than at any school or college or seminar. And the best part is that its all free(minus the expected kickbacks.)
The best community you can ask for is one thats open to all so no one is left out. Private messages ruin trust. We should live our lives that way, if you cant say it to everyone in the community then you probably shouldnt be saying it. MooMoo community has no secrets. Just ask @Captain Flint@chgocal123@DEADSEED1111@I M POSSIBLE@MS159@Mr Trecherous@Popular on moomoo@petermanysaliva@STD0313@Team moomoo@treydongui@yesuuu@Bunnx and thousands of others.
And remember to take time alone so you can enhance your perceptions and intelligence. To be the best we must remind ourselves everyday that we are mortal and we will leave this world with one thing and only one-enlightenment. Then we can face the world every day with the right perspective.
Before i go....
$Cricut(CRCT.US)$ today buy in 27.68 sell 30.70. Hold until Tuesday sell at 33.76. 20% profit.
Reversed downtrend
$US Well Services(USWS.US)$

American newbie investor: Starting a business has made me eager to make money "work" for me

Jazzie, a U.S. resident who left her job in April to pursue entrepreneurial efforts.
"Especially in the last two years, working in two or three supermarkets at the same time was routine for me," she said. "I had to work more than 60 hours a week, and I felt really tired."
As she ventured out on her own, Jazzie found her busy entrepreneurial life inspired her to find ways to make her hard-earned money work for her.
So Jazzie also spent more time and energy on investing but struggled with where to begin, that is until she found moomoo.
"Moomoo is like a trustworthy old friend that provides you with all-around information to help you make the wisest and most well-thought-out decisions," Jazzie said.
More importantly, because of her busy entrepreneurial life, Jazzie started to think more clearly and urgently about investing, and she also had more time to learn and practice investing.
Jazzie said she first had a clear sense of how powerful investing can be when her dad told her at her twentieth birthday that if she kept investing $2,000 every year, she would have a significant amount of money by the time she was 25.
"I wasn't that motivated at the time, but I was deeply touched," she said. "Later on, especially now, when I'm 25 and no longer have the support of my parents, I have to work harder to make money and have to rely on myself as an entrepreneur. I started thinking about how to make my money work for me. In that case, I could achieve financial freedom and retire a little earlier and focus on the things I truly love."
So Jazzie took to investing.
"Hopefully, someday in the future, I will become a senior investor," she said. "I hate living a life where I have to sit behind a desk all the time. After starting my own business, I can work remotely from home, but I'd rather not be on the computer all day and be on call all the time.
I hope I can enjoy life to the fullest and stop running around, trying to make money. Therefore, I will work hard to learn more about investing and practice until I achieve my ultimate goal of financial freedom."
But as she continued learning how to invest, she found a valuable tool with moomoo after a friend's recommendation.
"For me, moomoo makes all investment information more open and transparent," Jazzie said. "Everyone can invest and make what they think is the best choice on a level playing field."
Especially for investors like Jazzie and still learning the ins and outs, moomoo is user-friendly in terms of its functions and user experience.
When needing to research investment varieties and targets, Jazzie found that the research materials on moomoo are comprehensive and easy to understand and provide her with the information she needs. For continuous advanced learning, and at the same time, the functions are easy to use and convenient.
"One of the things that attracted me the most is moomoo's AI monitoring and predicting function, as well as customizable reminders," Jazzie said. "Moomoo is like an especially trustworthy old friend that provides you with a full range of information to help you make the wisest, most well-thoughted decisions."
Jazzie has seen exceptional results with that trusted partner in hand, with over 17 percent returns (Past result is in no way a predictor of future gains. Your results will vary.) last year.
"I'm happy with that, and I didn't pay too much attention to returns when I was operating because I know that markets are volatile, and you never know what's going to happen next," Jazzie said. "When returns go up, of course, I am happy, but when they go down, I would tell myself, now could be a time to buy-in. I keep reminding myself to stay cautiously optimistic and, as a newbie, to invest with caution and not put too much pressure on myself."
Now, having accumulated some investment experience, Jazzie has also started to recommend moomoo to her friends who are interested in investing.
"Moomoo is a stock trading platform that makes investing easier," she said. "Here, users can obtain the most comprehensive investment information. With moomoo, even a newbie who doesn't know anything can grow into a seasoned investor through hard work."

💖Love at First Sight❤

My first encounter with $Futu Holdings Ltd(FUTU.US)$ moomoo was when I chanced upon the advertisement on the MRT station where I was greeted by the cute sounding name which reminded me of a nursery rhyme that I used to sing to when I was a kid and the adorable cow mascot that seemed to offer hope and optimism in the bull market. The catchy name and fascinating mascot were so intriguing that it enticed me to discover more about moomoo. To add on to its appeal, the tempting free $Apple(AAPL.US)$ share proved too irresistible to the point that it initiated my investing beginning on this brand new trading platform. I must say that Moomoo is a very user friendly platform that offers an easy-to-follow user guide with all the various features to allow me to embark on my investing  journey without any difficulty. Without a doubt, moomoo is an innovative and engaging platform where it leads me to self discover all about investing once again with the quizzes, games, events and other activities which I could actively participate in. The highly vibrant moomoo community here fosters a free flow and exchange of investing perspectives, ideas and opinions with one another to enrich our investing experience, further bonding all mooers of diverse background as one big family. Investing is now no longer a solitary nor isolating experience but one where it feels like a community that renders investing to be much more meaningful. There is no one distinct moomoo moment for me as moomoo has already deeply integrated into my everyday life of investing and sharing of ideas with fellow mooers. It has become the first app that I wake up to and the last one I fall asleep to. Last but not least, I would like to take this opportunity, together with the moomoo Trinity, to wish FUTU a Happy 9th Birthday and looking forward to many more prosperous years with moomoo!

Happy 9th FUTU-bulous Anniversary!

Grab the cake Cake and candlesCandlebecause it’s time to celebrate a FUTU-bulous 9th Anniversary of our best-loved FUTU! Party
$Futu Holdings Ltd(FUTU.US)$’s MooMoo has successfully build a social community of traders. I notice that our MooMoo Community is very passionate about learning and utilising digital means to do so. FUTU has made tremendous progress to include features aimed at upgrading my knowledge, ease of use, such as real-time market data, access to tutorials, live company broadcasts and even customisable tools.
I, particularly, adore FUTU’s new logo inspired by the victorious Charging Bull, an unmistakable tribute to power and prosperity on New York’s Wall Street. The new logo is so apt as it represents the tenacity and upbeat spirit of Mooers.
RoseFUTU’s community of users is the real draw for me. Mooers can use the in-app forum to connect and exchange market views as well as share our investment insights. This social aspect of investing will certainly grow in the years to come. The MooMoo Community allows me to interact with other like-minded individuals across the globe.
RoseAdditionally, I have observed a growth in interactions as more Mooers are more than willing to share their tips and expertise with one another to help us become more well-versed in the financial world.
RoseI absolutely like the fact that Mooers can also partake in discussions and share our trading insights with other like-minded investors globally.
RoseWithin the MooMoo Community, I feel safe and happy to share my opinions and lessons learnt from my investments and inspire fellow Mooers by exchanging our success stories.
RoseHonestly, it is really quite amazing to see how involved Mooers are becoming in sharing their knowledge for the benefit of other Mooers.
HeartMy Joyous MooMoo Moment
I was totally taken by surprise with an in-app notification to inform that I was crowned with a “Mentor Moo” title for one of the posts which I had written. I’m genuinely grateful and humbled by how supportive our fellow Mooers are. And, I sincerely thank everyone who has taken the time to read my post and made that extra effort to vote as well. MooMoo Community is really encouraging and supportive indeed. I truly enjoy writing, sharing, learning and growing together within the MooMoo Community.

IT Engineer from Singapore: From Unemployed to Employed & How Investing Became His Alternative Life

Brian Ong is from Singapore and is one of the first users of moomoo when it launched in the city-state. Brian’s nickname on moomoo is @Brianjh.
A year ago, Brian was at rock bottom as he was unemployed, but a year later, he is gaining success in both the workplace and in the stock market. Not only has he become a product engineer at a well-known technology company in Singapore, but he has also learned how to invest and manage his wealth starting from scratch. He regained his self-confidence on his investment journey and has found a new lease on life.
Brian told us his story on how moomoo has helped him on his journey in investment and trading, and how it has increased his motivation for self-improvement.
From unemployed to employed, Brian regained his self-confidence
Brian lost his job a year ago due to the pandemic and other reasons. He had lost his heading in life during this time and was living aimlessly. Having spent all of his savings, he had no choice but to rely on his parents.
Fortunately, Brian’s parents were not harsh on him, but encouraged him to look for new employment opportunities instead. Brian felt shameful in the face of his aging parents and realized that he could not continue like this. He therefore started thinking about how he could get out of this difficult situation.
To improve his financial situation, he decided to try his hand at investing. However, starting as a newbie, he didn’t even know which type of investment and trading software was suitable for him. As he painstakingly searched through investment information online, an app with an orange “Wall Street Bull” logo caught his eye.
moomoo had just launched in Singapore at that time, but quickly become well known amongst Singaporean investment circles. With a “let’s try and see” attitude, Brian downloaded the app, registered and began his journey as an investor.
What he likes about moomoo the most is the abundance of investment tutorials on the platform, cateringto investors with different levels of experience ranging from beginners to advanced. He uses moomoo every day to learn about basic investment and trading knowledge, the stock market, trading strategies, long-term investments, and other financial knowledge, etc.
Besides using moomoo, Brian also watches a lot of YouTube videos on investment and trading every day. These have all greatly improved his overall understanding of stock markets and money markets, and his knowledge of investing has improved by leaps and bounds.
He then slowly began to formulate his own investment strategies. Before investing, he would conduct in-depth research and analysis on companies he is interested in, and use moomoo to learn about related news and industry trends, and then analyze the trends to decide whether there are potential investment opportunities.
At the same time, he also uses YouTube, Google, and other channels to find more information to come up with an overall understanding and then evaluates and selects 1 to 5 companies to invest small amounts at regular intervals. Brian believes this reduces risk and “usually results in good returns.”
Slowly but surely, Brian’s investment returns have increased.
Only after 6 months since he started investing, Brian’s return is sitting at around 20% to 30%. He even yielded 100% once on a particular trade.
moomoo has been Brian’s guide in the world of investing
As a total beginner investor, not even in his wildest dreams did Brian think that he could do well with investing in such a short time. He credits this success to the investment software he uses every day, moomoo.
You can say that moomoo is the first software that led him down this journey of investment. Brian says that the moomoo operating interface is very user-friendly and that investors on moomoo can view quotes for individual stocks and related market news more efficiently and conveniently.
Brian likes to look at the fundamentals of a company.The variety of reports, information, and news available on moomoo satisfies his analysis and research needs. This helps him discover high-growth technology companies with sound fundamentals.
Of course, the most attractive aspect of moomoo is that “it has a great community, which is suitable for people to discuss stock information and share their investment insights or any other finance-related topics they may be interested in. If you have any questions about a particular function or stock, you can find the answer on moomoo. It is like a pool of knowledge that everyone benefits from, and everyone actively gives feedback, helps and encourages one another.”

Brian also loves the various activities and rewards on the moomoo platform. Several months ago, Brian exchanged the points he earned from participating in activities for a limited edition “lion dance bull”, which he places on his office desk so he can see it every day.
He says that he will continue participating in activities and earning points. “I want to get a money box next, which I plan to give to my father as a gift. He is almost 70, and he loves lucky charms. This money box has the Chinese character for “fortune” on it, so I’m sure he will love it.”
Investing becomes an alternative lifestyle
Besides doing well in investing, Brian has also been offered a job at a well-known technology company in Singapore thanks to his hard work. Now he has a stable job.
Today, Brian works hard at doing his job and also in investing, and is very confident about his future.
He frankly admits that investing has brought something new into his life. “Investing means that my wealth can grow. I have learnt many new things, and made a lot of like-minded friends through the investing process.”
Brian plans to slowly expand his investment portfolio and is considering investing in other financial products besides stocks. He believes that as his own analytical and decision-making abilities continue to improve, he will be able to make even better investment choices in the future. “I hope to yield 40%-50% in the future.”
This year is Futu’s 9th anniversary and Brian says: “I hope that moomoo will hold more online activities or seminars in the future and gather even more people together. This will allow us to share our own investment experiences and insights in real time. Of course, if possible, I would love to meet friends in the community in person.”
