Investment & Trading:


  • Bitcoin investment need to be leaned through year 2018, even though year 2017 made 479% profit over bitcoin investment. More concentration should focus on block-chain related innovative applications, not the uniform currency. In year 2018, find out a nice PE or ETF which has good allocation on block-chain investments. If there is no one, just wait, there must be one very soon.


  • The stock investments should be less aggressive in year 2018. Use short term options frequently to make hedge trading strategies. Be confident with top-notch technical companies such as FB, GOOG, BABA. The acceptable P/E for those stocks are 70.


  • The major long term investment didn't change a lot in year 2017, keep PE, be aware about BABA's long term investment. Q1 and Q2 report for BABA is critical, do not concentrate on revenue growth, margin gross and profit increment. Be aware of revenue component change in Q1 and Q2 report. One last word: 相信马云!


  • Keep look at Chinese AI and Deep Learning market, the short time is coming soon. Should find new financial tools to short directly on pre IPO AI and Deep Learning tools. Keep one word in heart : There must be a lot of bubbles behind each rapid growth, but the key is how to find them before the market changes.


  • Current investment portfolio is too volatile for year 2017. This portfolio need to be adjusted to have more wise investment allocation, should focus on risk free returns and sharp ratio for current portfolio.


  • Save money.

Summary: Try to save more money and be less aggressive on trading strategies, only trade on familiar patterns and situations.
