Holy Ramdan trading hours Batman! :

KSE Market timing for the Holy Month of Ramadan

Order Acceptance 10:00 am – 10:10 am
Regular Trading 10:10 am – 12:15 pm

2 hours and 5 minutes.

lol,….. i might as well go on holiday for the whole month 😛

on the otherhand, trading could be alot more active cos the hours are that much shorter.

theres been a larger number of suited foreigners visiting the market than usual.

yay for stupid hedge fund money looking for an easy buck ! 😀

and once we’re comfortably clear of 10,000,….

yay for stupid public money looking to make some pocket money for eid ! 😀

lately i have been finishing off The Art of Contrary Thinking by HB Neill.
(morning bathroom reading :P)

definately one of the better books out there regardless of what you do for a living.
in a nutshell, it says this:

the majority or people will be wrong when it pays to be right, and vice versa.

naturally he goes on to pinpoint times in the early 1900’s when economists and “experts” have been dead wrong.

why economists?

lets be honest here, modernday economists have been transformed into glorified fortune tellers by the big institutions ( academic or otherwise ) that pay their salaries.

and if you dont believe that, you gotta read his paragraph on the adoption, definition and application of the word ” extrapolate”.

now i know it sounds like one of those boring books that people in my line of work orgasm over, but it really is something that everyone should read regardless of their occupation.

if youve ever had an interest in creative thinking of any kind, this is the book to read.

it argues that creativity doesnt necessarily come from questions of “what if”, but rather from question of “why not” to replies of “thats just the way it is”.
creativity arises from the questioning of the status quo.
