Within the recent years, there is a surge of interest in commodities and derivatives trading as seasoned stock investors and traders are seeking alternative investments with attractive returns as compared to the returns from the conventional stock market. This leads to trading behaviors mostly seen in stock trading - these used to be stock investors who are now trading commodities are basing their market assessment on the same mindset, techniques and analysis they were using before, which could lead to huge inaccuracies as the fundamentals, behavior and the psychology of the stock and commodities markets are very different.
As an example, while stock market investments are segregated to short term, middle term and long term, the key determinant in commodities trading is the pre-agreed price with a deliverable future date. This translates to bi-directional markets, which could be leveraged no matter the market is bull or bear.
New and seasoned investors and traders seeking to have better understanding of the stock and commodity markets are invited to attend a free investment workshop conducted by Oriental Pacific Futures (OPF) in collaboration with Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Berhad (BMDB). Participants will get to learn the fundamentals of equity and commodity movements, unique pattern recognition, risk management and the difference between equity trading versus leveraged trading. Participants will also get direct insight on the market outlook for DJIA, FBM KLCI versus CPO and gold prices. The invited speaker for the event is Mr. Dar Wong, a sought-after investment coach from Singapore who has groomed many successful traders in leveraged trading. Dar, who has 20 years of trading experiences in global derivatives, is also a columnist for The Borneo Post and financial magazine The Trader's Journal.
The workshop, which will be held at Bursa Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur office at Bukit Kewangan on October 16, 2010, is open to the general public with limited seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
