I actually use this as a mkt indicator. Now we are in bear mkt and that's why the library is full of investment books. Come bull mkts all those books will be off the shelf n you will need to reserve for the books you want.

Having said that there are some books worth buying for keeps n continue to reference them in future.

hi jacmar,
This is interesting. Do u record them down when you sample the data, or is it purely based on intuition?

I have been an avid NLB borrower of books for last few years, ot course, not enough over a full market cycle yet. So far, it is more of the title and also how new that book is, that determine the popularity, from what i have observed.

Hi friends, just to share w you. I am leading 2 small private investment groups. Before anyone is allowed to join
the group they have to read these 2 books:
1. One up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch
2. Zuls Principle by Jim Slater.
Peter is down to earth, whereas Jim has a mix of basic technicals written in an easy to understand manner.
Just sharing w you.
Have a fruitful journey!

RE: A Newbie Guide to Investing
Not long ago, I attended a SGX Academy seminar and found out that after all the govt training grants*/skills future credits, the SGX courses are actually very affordable.

For beginners/fresh grads who find the private investing courses unaffordable, you can check out the following :
a) SGX Academy : https://www.sgxacademy.com/
  There is a plethora of courses ranging from beginner to professional.

b) Training grants : https://www.ssg.gov.sg/programmes-and-in...1557141175
   Eligible individuals can receive subsidies of up to 90% of course fees ....

*Do confirm with the course trainer/provider whether a particular course is applicable for the training grant.
