How To Use My Menu

How To Use My Menu

It doesn't matter how great the information here may be, if you can't find it easily.

That's why I've spent quite a bit of time today categorising my posts here in The Cool Time and Money Blog.

If you're dropping by for the first time, please consider this a BIG, warm welcome! My name's Rajen Devadason, and I'm a licensed financial planner currently living in sunny, equatorial Malaysia. I also own the life planning resource site, www.FreeCoolArticles.com, which contains free articles on three main subjects:

  1. Financial planning
  2. Goal-setting and
  3. Time Management

The information you'll find here is categorised into those same categories... plus a GENERAL tab for messages or posts that don't quite fit into any one category or that involve more than one of them.

All you need do is check out the sidebar on the right and look for the section clearly marked EASY REFERENCE - RAJEN'S POSTS BY CATEGORY - you might need to scroll down a little.

Have fun exploring, and happy reading!

Warmest regards,


Rajen Devadason is CEO of RD Book Projects and its sister company RD WealthCreation Sdn Bhd. He lives in sunny, peaceful Malaysia with his gorgeous wife Rachel. He's a Malaysian Securities Commission-licensed financial planner, a life planning consultant, a professional speaker and a serial author... which probably explains why he's so exhausted! Some of his books are available here.

Hi Rajen,

Received your email solicting feedback on your articles, FP8, FP16 & FP13.

I think lots of people are in debt and/or have difficulty in saving money and I think that is the reason why many people read these two articles and not the other on Mr Market on investing.

They may not be in a position to invest or have not much experience in investing and hence may find the article difficult to understand. Mr Market is a concept.

The reason why they find difficutlty in understanding Mr Market, I think, is most people "invest" by trading (buy low and sell high concept)and your readers may well have the perception that investing is to be done in this manner, ie trading manner.

They may not realise that actual investing is actually investing, ie buy a stake in the company which you think has potential and share in its future income and earnings by way of distributions, dividends and captial appreciation.

Most people do not realise that when a habit of trading is formed (preception that trading is the only method of investing), they will habitually try to buy low and sell high. What happens is that they may make money (and conclude that this is the correct way), exit the market and return to buy again hoping to make more money (this time round they have entered into a buy high and sell higher phrase which they may not notice as prices are always relative in terms of high or low as one cannot forsee the future prices).

The day will come when the market corrects and then they will loose most if not all or more than all their past profits.

Otherwise the other reason I can think of why they do not read Mr Market is perhaps the title has not much attraction or relevance to their needs.

Hope you find my comments useful.
