I was reading a book recently in MPH Readers’ Circle on investment by 2 writers. They talked about value spread analysis of the stocks which means reading the charts and analyse the movement of the herd or crowd to make gains and profits. It is different from fundamental analysis or technical analysis. One of my methods of investment is to buy gold and I have already opened a Gold Investment Account (GIA) with Public Bank. For those with more money to invest, you might like to consider methods to buy gold bullion for long term investment. I am in no hurry to invest in shares as it requires indepth knowledge and timing to buy and sell at the right time and constantly reading the news, financial blogs and to follow The Edge magazine for tips.
