As a first post I thought I’d give some background information on who I am. I’m Jeffrey Sia a medical student in Newcastle, Australia. Being Asian I was only offered 3 choices as carriers from my parents, the 3 being, doctor, lawyer or accountant. Seeing as both my parents are doctors, I didn’t really think about doing anything else.
However, I never really found medicine as interesting as finance. So I decided to gather up some money and throw them into the share markets in Australia. I’ve been doing it for a few years now and results have been good considering I learnt all I know about the markets from reading books and magazines.
This blog is set up basically so that I can type out and reflect upon my investment decisions, good or bad and hopefully they will be a good read. I will be taking part in the trading places competition by JP Morgan which will start in a week. So I will update my trades and portfolio balance hopefully with each post and we all can comment on how I'm going.
So news that are hot at the moment is Uranium and Japanese earthquake. After weeks of painful trading conditions, the markets are finally in the greens today. So when we talk about uranium, PDN comes to mind. So now the question is to buy or not to buy? And what is going to happen to the nuclear power industry?
