I always keep myself up-to-date with the current and latest news by reading subscribed newspapers at home and from buying periodicals in the bookstores. Normally I read up on finances and world news on the stock market and its ripple effects. The burgeoning fiscal deficit in USA will affect world economy as USA is one of the biggest importers of raw and processed materials around the world. China is catching up as well and is the second biggest world economy after USA.
And if you are a Malay, you might be interested in Arab News about the situation and ongoing fighting in the Gaza strip. Arab News have certainly captured world attention because it involves Israel which is God’s chosen nation. When you read Arab News, you will see the high tension there between warring parties and this also affects the world stock markets.
We have been educated to buy during bad times like recession, scandal, etc and sell during good times when the economy is doing well. Like what Warren Buffet said, ‘Be greedy when others are fearful and be fearful when others are greedy.” So, stock investment involves a lot of reading up to do, doing mathematical calculation to calculate the EPS (Earnings per Share), ROE (Return on Equity), dividend yields, etc. This, my dear friends, will take some time to digest and understand all the financial terms used in the stock market.
