Dear friends,

First of all I must thank to CSE a lot because I made over 200% gain over the last 2 years. I have been trading over 6 years in total and seen many downs and ups of the market. 95% of my portfolio is of fundamental shares and undervalued shares.

At this present condition, I have been losing almost Rs. 200,000/= everyday. I am planning to quit temporarily and come back with 50% of portfolio when things are ok. My portfolio value is 8 digit figure and if I dispose it and put it in a fixed deposit I will earn more than my present salary.

My options are:
1) Dispose entire portfolio and deposit it in fixed deposit account
2) Dispose 50% and reinvest it in plantations (coconut)
3) Quit the job and spend more time on trading
4) Buy an appartment and rent
5) Do nothing and wait till the market recover

Also, I would like to know how many of you are doing trading as a job (full-time). I have more than 25 years to retire but I feel if I spend more time in the market I always can make more gains and reduce loses. I'm also fed up with my present job.

Friends, please advice me.

If I were you I would dispose about 25-50% of PF even with some losses, after carefully selecting high P/E forwards. Keep this money in liquid form and keep until this down trend ends. I expect this to be end by beginning of Q4, until then those with high p/e's will seek its bottom (i.e. until Q3 results, those companies which cannot support these high p/e with actual results will sink).

Again enter the market if you wish. I believe 2012 to be exciting year.

This is my personal view please obtain professional advice before making your investment decisions.

I believe this is due to some credit clearance, political unrest and flow of IPOs and right issues. People don't have money to invest (with credit clearance and sequence of IPOs). I think the red will continue till end of this month but cannot guarantee a bull run after that. Overall, 2011 will be a flat year in CSE.

I like to mention that quit from the job sound not good to me . At least you will get some income end of the each month. Hope you have a good job with decent salary. We cannot relay every time from the market. Actually i am doing the share market in part time and i invest some from my savings on the market and i have given two apartments on rent in colombo and now think about cultivation and searching for a good coconut land and having some FD also for emergency. What i want to say is don't relay on one field and better to focus in all side that u can do. Think about fundamental shares and their scope is on many fields and same way you have to use your savings wisely. Don't relay on one side and for example now see what happening on the market. Same way if you have more than 25 years to retire loosing the job will be not good thing.Take perfect decisions other wise you have to suffer for the life time. Very Happy

My advice is..... don't sell when market is coming down. Sell when market is going up. Don't follow the crowd.

Wait till the market recover and when all other people are buying you sell your portfolio and gain as mush as possible. After that you can select one of the options you have listed above.

If i were you i would dispose 50% and invest in an income generating asset. (investment property...rental income etc.). I am also working in a state bank and derive a 5 figure salary. Even though i am happy with my salary i am fed up with my job....Thinking about doing full time trading and having some investment properties that generate monthly cash flow.

In my opinion ,

best strategy is to keep holding, Don't be panic selling @ low , pump additional money to buy fundamentally strong shares at low level

Finally,, plane for the worse... hope for the best Wink

Best strategy is not to start fighting among members,.. just allow stock market to see an overall recovery.... Ninety nine percent of the shares were down... Let all stocks recover up to previous levels.... Keep all kinds of mew investments interested and attracted to CSE.
