About Jonathan

“Good stocks, bad stocks, as long as can make money, it is a good stock.” – Jonathan Tan

Picture being able to make money regardless of market going higher or lower, able to have financial freedom and worry free the rest of your life. More than that, able to spend time with your family and to do anything that your heart desires! Impossible? Not according to Jonathan when you know how to read the charts.
Jonathan Tan started investing in stock market right after the Asian financial crisis in 1998 and made quite some money. But having substitute luck with skills, he lost every profits and his capital. He accumulated his savings by working and started all over again. In every bull market, he made some profits, but when it comes to bear market, he lost everything including his capital. Sounds familiar? Until one day when he was so frustrated, he started to learn technical analysis and through real life application, he found out the practical way of applying technical analysis and from that day onwards, his trading skills started to improve and slowly regain back his lost capital and make consistent profits.
After numerous years as Regional IT Manager for a large multi-national company, Jonathan has since quit his full-time job in 2006 and now trades for a living. Having previously conducted a lot of seminars and technical analysis courses, Jonathan discovered that the simplest way to trade is the most effective and profitable. He prefers the “lazy” way to trade which means waiting for the right signals, the right time and the right price before pulling the trigger. Jonathan had previously written articles for regional newspaper and magazines such as The Star and SmartInvestor. Now he shares his experience using social media such as website, Facebook, and YouTube. In fact he is very proud to say that he is the one and only person in Singapore that does a weekly YouTube briefing that enables the public to understand the market directions in less than 15 minutes.

Words from Jonathan:

Hi everyone, this is where I put my heart out. You can see what I am doing, where I share my thoughts and feelings, not only about the stock market or forex, but this is also where I share my inspirations, aspirations, goals and achievements. In a short word: everything. Why am I doing this? It is for me, whereby once you know what I want to do, whenever you see me slack off, I need you help to remind me to keep pushing my limits, ok?

In this page, you will see my heart, whereby I will put in some notable quotes (who knows, I may write a book in the future, ke ke ke). And I will also write my goals that I will work towards and hopefully, you will also join me in this wonderful journey called life. This page will always be a work in progress.

Goal Settings:

  1. Holiday in Namale for 1 week
  2. Meet Tony Robbins
  3. Meet Eric Thomas
  4. Listen live to Jon Schmidt concert
