Wongamania@Bursa Malaysia with UTAR Kampar

The epic selfie with the students from UTAR Kampar!
23th August marks the first major Wongamania workshop, in collaboration with Financial Youth Intelligence and Bursa Malaysia, to host 130+ students from UTAR Kampar. The event was held in the prestigious Listing Hall at the stock exchange, the auditorium where successful Malaysian enterprises take journey from private companies into publicly listed companies.

The students have a great time learning about economics and bankrupting their friends through unexpected economic crisis. Morale of the day: Always be prepared because you never know when an economic crisis will strike.

Congrats to Munnychan who won himself a limited launch edition of Wongamania as part of the instagram selfie competition. Look for #wongamania in your instagram for more creative selfies that the students took!

A Small 10% Move into Europe

I ended my monthly review post for July with this statement,

"The global stock market has fallen 4-10% since the last week of July, with the European markets bearing the brunt of the damage. It is still too early to call for a market correction yet, as the Bulls haven't really given up the strong rally which they have enjoyed for the last 3 years. However, a stray missile from the Russian backed Ukrainian rebels had started the wheels of a possible 10% correction into motion."

The global stock market has rebounded since a week ago and the bulls are looking to regain their trend after being knock down by the Ukraine crisis. This will be the most critical stage of the Bull run as any failure to turn the investors' psychology around to a more positive one, will probably lead to a lost of control by the Bulls.

The Events that Broke the Back of the Bull

The event that turned the tide of the global stock market

The global stock market seems to be unstoppable come July 2014. There are some analysts citing that "Selling in May and Go Away" is dead as there was no immediate risk to the global economy. The US economy is growing at last with all major indicators on a rise. The events over at Ukraine had been glossed over as immaterial and the Europe central bank affirmed their decisions to keep interest rates low. Investors were positive over at Asia as China and India seemed to have gotten their economy into order. All was well, until a stray missile shot down an airline passenger.

Today marks the launch of the Limited Launch Edition Wongamania, together with our partners, Bursa Malaysia and  Financial Youth Intelligence (FYI)  at the Bursa Malaysia Building at Kuala Lumpur

We had the chance to share the game with the staff of Bursa Malaysia and a few selected student leaders from major universities in KL. They were among the first people in the world to try out the Limited Launch Edition Wongamania. Everyone I spoke to praise the breadth and depth of Wongamania and many people were asking us when are we going to officially launch the game. I aim to see the main edition of Wongamania to be out by the beginning of November! Stay tuned!

Here are some of the feedbacks on Wongamania posted on Instagram!
