hi gjallar,

daming info online on stock trading, try mo rin yung Stock Trading thread sa Working Filipino folder ng PEx, daming professional traders dun. i myself prefer to simply invest in mutual funds though, ayaw ko kasing nauubos ang oras ko paga-anlyze nyang mga stock trends, etc. gusto ko lagi passive income ;)

btw, the PSE stocks are currently rallying for the 7th straight day now. humahataw ang PLDT, mukhang eto ang blue chip na dapat talagang abangan. as for my SM Investments stock, I heard we'll be getting a $3 cash dividend by next month, and on top of that, the stock is now currently trading at P55. :D

Hi, I'm new here...but have been trading phil stocks since college days ( translation...more than a dekade and a half ago) I got badly hit during the 1997 asian crisis kaya medyo dahan dahan na muna sa investing. Haven't been trading for quite some time na but here is my 2 cents worth to those interested.
You need to scout for a reliable broker, hopefully one that charges the least commission,(though medyo standard na siguro rates esp if you are not a heavy investor) and can be easily contacted. They usually have advise and recommendations...but from still trust your own intuition para walang sisihan, walang sure ball dito You can tune in to ANC in the mornings for ongoing stock activities and their stock picks. If you are a risk taker, going for short-term investment, you might want to scout for some highly volatile cheap stocks. Compute how much your net return is after one fluctuation increase and see if that's good enough for you... Personally, I would see if 2 fluctuations is good enough return for me, then I would buy. Stock market has been on the upside these past weeks...I would exercise more caution buying now because everything might be on the expensive side. Its my first time to hear aboutn hyip on these boards...might try my luck on these for a while :)

^ Onga, mejo mataas na Phil stock prices ngayon. Although posible pang umakyat, nde na tayo sure. Maganda sanang bumili ng stocks last year, before the new VAT law was implemented.

Nde ako mahilig mag-trade kasi kelangan ng oras jan, pero ang plano ko pag nakaipon-ipon na, bili lang ng blue chip stock tapos balikan ko na lang investment ko after some years. Going for the long term ang strategy ko, wala pakialam sa short-term price fluctuations...

^ From

A blue chip stock is the description of the stock of well-established companies having stable earnings and no extensive liabilities. Most blue chip stocks pay regular dividends, even when business is faring worse than usual. They are valued by investors seeking relative safety and stability, though prices per share are usually high. Typically, such stocks are perceived to offer reliable returns, low-yield, and low-risk.

In our case, considered blue chip stocks ang PLDT, Globe, Ayala, etc, sila yung relatively stable companies na nde ine-expect bumagsak at ine-expect na magpatuloy lumaki at kumita.

hello everybody! i met one engr in our company doing stock trading every 9:30am-12:10pm everyday as his part time while waiting on the next shift. i just want to ask second opinion if it is a good alternate career? he persuaded me to go and try on to it. I will try to source out the book mentioned by Mike QC.
back to stock trading, is it worth pursuing to be a stock trader someday or just a plain stock investor? I consider kasi this as an extra career aside from my work today. i need the pros and cons. any advice from the experts is much appreciated.

Mike QC

Hi Rigboy, what your friend is doing is called "day trading" with stocks. This type of stock traders hold positions for a very short time (from minutes to hours) and makes numerous trades. Most trades are entered and closed out within the same day. These Day traders are trying to make a career out of buying and selling stocks very quickly. Day trading can be costly, since the commissions and the bid/ask spread add up when there are so many transactions. It is a highly speculative practice. I got some friends who have been doing this for a # of years but all I noticed is that they're all still working and are still employed up to now. They also make good money but I don't think it's NOT enough to give up their jobs. Now our difference is my colleagues and I retired in our 30's and they're still there doing the same boring thing and glued to their computers. The reality is that most day traders lose money and they have to maintain a nice batting average in order to make really good which as we all know is very difficult in the world of speculations. Based on my experience, diversifying in good USA & Global Mutual Funds will beat most of their overall gains IN THE LONG RUN and will make you retire a lot sooner if you pick the best funds with a proven track record.  :thumbsup2

Mike QC,  WOW!!!! you are right, im overhelmed lang kasi sa outcome of his effort. i watched him for the past 5 trading days and it arouse my interest and seems exciting doing this apart from our routinary work. but as you had said it based on your experience, some of your colleagues still stucked to their computer and doing the same boring thing. and catching to me is your sentence :

The reality is that most day traders lose money and they have to maintain a nice batting average in order to make really good which as we all know is very difficult in the world of speculations

I dont want this to happen to me in the future. what i really want is to retire early and that is in 15years time. so well said, that answered my question.
 :yehey: :clap:
