Borrow and sell

There's so many sg investment gurus out there selling snake oil courses from borrowed investing ideas. It ranges from value investing to, a more recent ad that I saw on Youtube on Barbell strategy.

I foresee there will be crypto trading or "value crypto investing" courses ads popping up next. Just that there aren't many "famous ideas" out there to borrow for cryptos currently. The time will come when crypto has reached super euphoria and became more mainstream (we are approaching soon). Because then it will be easier for the gurus to "sell" to people from all walks of life, make themselves sound more believable and squeeze out more money from it. 

Just keep in mind that these gurus won't be the ones who truly made tons of money from what they preach. 

They got rich from "borrowing ideas / theories" and packaging them into something sellable to the masses. Cos they want YOUR money.

  1. Waiting for market crashes to invest big is also Barbell investing strategy. No?

    1. hi Uncle8888,

      Crash only happens once in a blue moon, unless the snake oils can teach people how to pray for it. It cannot be a strategy that can be implemented at any random time point.

  2. Rainbow girl,

    And I thought this post is about borrowing shares to sell short...


    Oh, don't let the fisherman smoke you.

    Waiting for market crashes to invest big is a Market Timing Strategy.

    Have you noticed in our community, many like to "invent" their own definitions of everything!?

    These people...

    1. Hi SMOL,

      Borrow shares to sell must cover back later. This one no need, plus low barrier of entry (no margin call whatsoever!).

      Oh yes, that's market timing strategy exactly! :P

      "Invent" their own definitions? Copy gurus is it? Haha
