"I adopted a high risk portfolio as my main trading strategy to outperform the other competitors. As such, I invested most of my money into emerging resource companies. The ASX was experiencing a bull market during the Competition period. Resource stocks and the infrastructure sector saw phenomenal EPS growth, driven by increased global commodity prices and strong domestic economic fundamentals.
As the economy turns into 2008, our market faces an existential threat as a protracted downturn in housing interacts with credit tightening and increasing wholesale funding costs. In my view, defensive stock such as retail or healthcare would be a good place to hide. As the credit market remains cloudy, a question for all the competitors is; 'will a high-risk portfolio bring us abnormal returns in the current market climate?'
Finally, I would like to say thank you to TradingPlaces for providing such a good platform for students to understand the market, good luck to all the 'traders' in 2008 and most importantly, enjoy the game."
Congratulations to the Top 10 Prize Winners
