Investing on stock is a gamble. It's either you profit or you don't. I am a stock investor and I've had my shares ifsuccess and failures, I want to increase my success rate which is why I want to know the signs of a portfolio that is about to lose money so that preventive measures can be taken against the situation.7

    If you have a celebrity-like portfolio then you need to watch out. A celebrity-like portfolio simply means that you are buy the same stocks the ‘guru’ investors like are buying. If you are a stockoholic then you need to stop as it would hurt you more than it would help. Do you find yourself having ‘junk’ stocks in your portfolio you’re unwilling to cut losses on? You must not be to cut off losses cause most of the time, they do not regain the profit that you used to have.

Complimentary Night Stay a Success

Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia. Even more pleasing was the complimentary golf games at a high quality golf courses in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, I had as much as six complementary golf games.

5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

Pleasant Rewards

In my opinion, this card is one of the best cards in the market especially as there are no expiry date to miles earned and an amazing 2 VIP airport lounge access. I love the fact that the card can be used for major big ticket items and to clock mileage. Redemption can be done easily without hassle and customer service staff are very helpful
