Good Day to all PMT'iers

I am planning on trying online trading. But my problem is i have a day job 8:30 am to 5:30 pm from monday to friday is there any member having the same situation but can still do online trading. Could you give me some advice. And is there any online trading site that can be used in a mobile phone or tablet. Or if it is not possible is there any other option.

THank you,

pwede ka ba mag-trade habang nagtatrabaho?

pwede ka magplace ng limit orders or GTC (learn about the order types, if u haven't yet). these are orders wherein u set a price u want to buy at (prices which may or may not get hit).

mahirap magtrade kung hindi ka makakapagfocus. lalo pa sa umpisa, u have to learn about trading.

your option is to do forex trading instead.
24-hour market ito kumpara sa stocks na limited time lang araw araw.
i must say your job would still be an obstacle, although to a lesser extent compared to stock trading... since ang forex trading pwede mo gawin anytime --- before &/or after work pwede parin.

if interested, head on over to PMT's forex subforum para hindi Off Topic.

when i was starting in forex, i'd be at the office early (very, very early) and do my analysis of the pairs i'm monitoring...

i was then trading using daily timeframe...

so basically, it starts and ends at 5am in the morning (its the close of the US session)...

all through out the day,i would then take a peek once in a while during the day, maybe for 10-20 min just to see if the trade is going my way or adjusting my stop losses (to break even)...

then during the night, i would monitor my positions and read and study abt trading and the currency market...

it's quite possible if u really want to, just a bit of dedication and focus...

though i have evolved, i still maintained that habit of checking where the daily candle closed at 5am...

Post Merge: Jan 18, 2012, 07:42 AM
if i may suggest the following schedule...

be at ur office at maybe round 7am, do ur analysis, place ur trades...

take a look at the market around 10am if u have coffee breaks at ur office...

take a look again after lunch before going back to work...

check again around 4pm (London open) or around 5-6 before going home...

when i say check or take a look, i mean just glance and take action only if necessary...u have done ur analysis earlier in the morning, no use second-guessing urself...

if possible, check again between 9-11pm (overlap of europe and US session, the most volatile times of the trading day...

while monitoring, u can study abt trading and forex...

wake up early...repeat...

hard? too difficult? nobody said winning was easy right... :applause:

Could you give me some advice. And is there any online trading site that can be used in a mobile phone or tablet. Or if it is not possible is there any other option.

THank you,
i believe majority of us here who's involved in trading (stocks or fx) have concurrent day jobs, 8-5ers, multi-tasking working class, local and overseas... so to answer your question, yes it is as doable as your boss's lady trainee... as long as you have internet access (less site restrictions, the better), you do your homework/self-study during your free time (at the office during snacks/lunch break, sa bahay before going to bed, or after waking up, or even during a lousy date, basta find time), and you can squeeze in 30mins of your time to execute your orders during the trading hours (15min in the morning, 15min in the afternoon -- para ka lang nagcheck/open ng emails), then you can make it work. for stocks, firstmetrosec has an iPad app already, but you can monitor your trades with other brokers using smart phones/androids via bloomberg app. for forex, most popular brokers also have iphone/android/blackberry apps for mobile access.

bottomline, time management, and if you can limit your sleeping hours to 6 hrs or less during weekdays, and you minimize tinkering with facebook nonsense, then you can do ^all that and more. just choose, maraming tulog or maraming pera/opportunity na kumita ng pera?

I repeat, operative words: make it work.

goodluck!

@vinaniceto, you were asking about trading platform on tablet....First Metro Securitues already has IPAD app.... Even w/t it you can still log in n trade in their website. The App just makes it more convenient...

Yes you can use GTC order so you can order it at night before trading opens.

Or just get yourself an Android phone or tablet, connect to wifi in your office if there is, if not use mobile internet, then use its internet browser like opera to trade. You dont "need" a double digit thousand pesos apple products to trade not unless you just "want" it.

Have 7am-5pm day job, have to wake up 4:30am during Ph trading hours. Bonus on weekends (th-fri) which I can monitor all day. I use my ipod touch for transaction if I'm away from my laptop. Lots of apps can help you monitor as well

Sir konti lang alam ko sa stocks as i dont trade them....
hanapin mo sir yung listahan ng online & offline stockbrokers sa Pilipinas
pag-aralan mo & mamili ka sa kanila.
merong iilan na online brokers (Citisec online, First metro securities, philstocks.ph, etc. )

ang credit cards may built-in security features na. pero syempre mag-iingat ka parin sa pag-navigate/transact online.

if u have forex-related questions, post ka lang dun sa forex subforum. NO NEED na basahin mo yun lahat ng threads, sayang oras mo. hanapin mo yung gusto mo pag-aralan/matutunan then magFOCUS ka dun.
